Here’s a guide to help you understand what your property manager should do for you. When you employ a professional property manager they should maximise the return on your investment by providing the following services;
Find prospective tenants
After finding a tenant, your agent should thoroughly screen them before recommending them to you. This means checking their references and employment history and talking with their employer. They should also check with their current agent or landlord ensuring they pay their rent promptly and keep the property in good condition.
Prepare the lease documentation
Your agent will need to prepare a lease that protects both you and the tenant. The Real Estate Institute in each state has a standard lease that is used by most agents. A good property manager may add some special clauses required to further protect you.
Organise bond documentation
The tenant should pay a bond equivalent to 4 weeks rent. Legislation in most states requires the bond to be placed with a Residential Tenancy Bond Authority. Your property manager will handle the documentation for this and any disputes regarding the bond arising at the end of the tenancy.

“We trusted the team at Metropole with the management of our rental property. After considering the services of some of our local agents, we realized their lack of initiative and desire only as ‘sales agencies’ meant that they couldn’t give us the service of a specialised rental agency.
Their hard work and determination made it as stress free as humanly possible without compromising our desired result. In fact we had more people to our open for inspections than a similar property had for its auction day by a highly regarded real estate agency in the area! Once again we pass on our gratitude and look forward to working with you all in the future.“
Phil and Fiona Ferraro, Mentone
“As a tenant, I have been so impressed by your level of service and that you never fail to return calls. The inspection of our property and the renewal of the tenancy agreement were also done with a minimum of fuss. We have recommended Metropole to many of our friends.“

I would like to thank you for the professional service finding a premium property in record time. What may have taken months to achieve on my own has been achieved in weeks. You have found a property that has exceeded my expectations both in value, position and ongoing capital growth. The savings made in time and purchase price have far outstripped any buying fee and have silenced any skeptics I know.
Just wanted to pass on to you my gratitude of the work done thoughout the entire process of identifying my investment needs, locating an appropriate property and negotiating it's price, to the purchase and paperwork involved. Being new to the investment property game I believe your services have been invaluable… and I look forward to dealing with Metropole in the near future.
