We market, find, screen, and place the tenant. Then we hand the property back to you for management. The placement-only service has been designed to save you time, money and provide you with every detail to make future management as simple as possible.

Property Check Services

If your property will be vacant for a period of time, your insurance agency may require licensed property manager to visit the home, in order for your policy to remain valid. Since every policy is different, you will have to check on your own policy or check with your insurance agent to confirm what your responsibility is.
We will will attend your property as the specified intervals and provide documentation of the visit.

Please inquire with one of our Property Managers for details of our Property Check Services Fee.

Marketing

The rental market is an ever-changing environment.

As professionals, we are constantly assessing the market to ensure each property is listed at fair market value.
Before the marketing of your property begins, a licensed property manager will carry out a property inspection to help identify the most appropriate price point.

We will then use a variety of different media, including the web, local press, and social media to ensure your property is rented.

Guaranteed Tenant Screening for Rental Owners

We conduct comprehensive screening of all potential tenants. This includes reference checks from current and previous employers as well as previous landlords. Tenants’ credit scores may also be verified through Equifax, a reputable credit monitoring agency.

Entering into a Tenancy Agreement

As your Agent, we will enter into, and complete, a tenancy agreement on your behalf. Whenever possible, we will explain every term and condition of the tenancy as well as any other rules and bylaws imposed on the property, so the tenant is aware of responsibilities they have before signing.

Condition Inspection Report

Landlords and tenants are required to complete a Condition Inspection Report at the beginning and end of each tenancy. A Landlord or tenant loses their right to lay claim to a security deposit should they fail to carry out a condition inspection report.
We conduct a very detailed condition inspection report which includes digital photographic evidence to back up all findings prior to each tenancy commencing. This report complies with all rules and regulations set by the RTA and will ensure that you are able to protect your property in the best way possible against any damages at the end of the tenancy.

Rent Collection

We do everything we can to make paying rent easy. We accept cash, cheque and interact e-transfer.

All rental funds and deposits are deposited as soon as they are received directly into fully audited trust accounts until disbursement.

Each month you will receive a statement of income and expenditures and rental funds will be directly deposited into your account. We disperse payments the last day of the month following the rental period. For example, we disperse May rent, the last day June.

Routine Inspections

We are accessible 24 hours a day 7 days a week to assist with any tenant or property emergency. On top of this we conduct regular property checks carrying out thorough visual inspections. This allows us to effectively note the condition of the property and advise or make suggestions for any upcoming maintenance needs to help with budgeting purposes. Being upfront with all our tenants about the frequency of inspections also helps discourage any illegal use of your property. We always act in a caring and unobtrusive manner when carrying out property inspections.

Tenant Disputes

We deal with all tenant disputes so you don’t have to. Any unacceptable behaviour by a tenant will be dealt with according to the rules within the Residential Tenancy Act (RTA).

We quickly arrange for restitution of rent non-payment and NSF charges. If the tenant’s rent payment is late by more than three days we will automatically issue a 10-day notice to end tenancy as per the RTA.

Financial Reporting

We provide paperless accounting statements delivered straight to your email every month. Each report shows all financial transactions which took part in your trust account over the statement period.

End of Tenancy

When a tenancy ends we will be on hand to help and and advise a tenant of their responsibilities for any utility accounts and cleaning requirements prior to their move out.

We will carry out a detailed move out condition inspection report and make any assessment of any damage which is beyond regular wear and tear. Security deposits which have been held in fully audited trust account will be adjusted and paid accordingly.
