WHAT HAPPENS FIRST? APPRAISING YOUR PROPERTY If possible, we will meet you at your property so that you can show us any particular features or maintenance issues. After inspecting the property, we will forward a detailed report. Our aim is to get the best possible rent for your property in the quickest timeframe, whilst still securing a responsible tenant who will look after the property. We achieve this by our realistic approach to an achievable rent. We don’t offer inflated rental amounts just to gain your business – there are no winners when the property remains vacant for weeks on end. We take the following factors into consideration when setting the rent. • General demand for similar properties/ current vacancy levels.• Seasonal demand - expected inquiry levels for the time of year.• Rent obtained for similar properties currently leased.• Rent asked for similar properties currently available.
What is a property condition report?
PROPERTY CONDITION REPORT A property condition report is compiled at the commencement of a tenancy, just before your tenant moves in. This report details the condition of the property and contents,item by item. It also includes multiple detailed photos. The property condition report is used when the tenant vacates to enable a comparison and to assess if the property is left in the same condition, allowing for fair wear and tear. When keys are returned to us at the end of a tenancy a "bond inspection" is carried out as soon as possible. The property condition report is used at this inspection and each part of the property is assessed against the report, item by item . Any items that are damaged or require maintenance other than fair wear and tear are identified and the bond is withheld until these issues have been rectified by the tenant or by CPPM on the tenant's behalf.
REGULAR INSPECTIONS OF YOUR PROPERTY There will be parts of your property that require constant regular assessment. If these areas are not assessed regularly, it may result in a loss of income or damage to your property. We also need to ensure that your property is being treated with respect by the tenants. This is why we carry out regular inspections on your behalf. At CPPM the first inspection is carried out approximately six weeks after the start of the tenancy and enables us to gain an early snap shot of the tenancy. By this stage most people will have unpacked and settled in and the inspection enables us to quickly address any issues that may become a problem if left unattended. After the first inspection, regular inspections are made every four months. During these inspections we check that your tenant is looking after the property appropriately, check that nothing appears to be damaged and assess if any maintenance is required.
