More on Rent Arrears…

Having written last week on “How to Achieve Zero Rent arrears” I was amazed to discover two friends whose rental properties had fallen into serious arrears while being managed supposedly by professional property managers. Sadly we hear the same story time and time again so this was just another example (two more actually) Why would any landlord accept tenants who fall behind in their rent payments. Well example number 1. Owner of a very nice 5 bedroom home under-rented, managed by a property manager who was under resourced to cope with the business, did no inspections in a year, did not review the rents and allowed rent to be in arrears to the tune of $9000?? The question is why? Why does an owner put up with it? They said they didn’t want to lose the tenant in case they couldn’t find another one?? But worse still, they didn’t want to terminate the agreement with the property manager because the property manager was a friend and was cheap!!  Example number 2. Property investor with several rental properties, some managed by property management company and some self managed.  The self managed properties lost $16,000 in rent arrears in one year? Why? The investor could not be bothered to check his bank statements nor did he review rents or inspect the properties. Needless to say we will be offering to turn the situation around in both cases including chasing the rental arrears. As a property investor myself and owner of Quinovic Property Management Parnell I know there is a better way. Contact us Mary Vinsen or David Vinsen and have your property or properties managed professionally.

Managing Rental Properties – How to Achieve Zero Rent Arrears

Every day we get enquiries from people investing in residential real estate wanting to have their properties  looked after and more specifically have the rent paid on time every time. I recently spoke with an owner, who had managed his own properties for several years and had several thousands of dollars in rent arrears that he had been unable to collect? And I mean rent arrears of more than $50,000 just for one property! .Why? He and many other people who manage their own rental properties had no system or skill when it came to insisting rent is paid on time every time. Tenants and especially long term tenants can have private landlords wrapped around their little finger with endless reasons for defaulting on rent payments. Many of these tenants have enjoyed low rents for long periods because landlords are also reluctant to increase rents. Why! They dont want to lose a tenant??  Why would you keep a long term tenant who pays under market rent and defaults on rent payments? The answer – because you are not a professional residential property manager with proper systems and processes to deal with every aspect of managing your property.  Regarding rent collection and market rents, at Quinovic Property Management Parnell we are very proud of our record. We currently have zero rent arrears and all of our rents are at or above market. We review rents constantly and apply increases at appropriate times.
