     What happens if the tenant doesn't pay rent? On the odd occasion a rental payment is missed (and      identified on our daily report), an arrears management procedure is initiated.

     If an arrear occurs, the following procedure commences:


     Day 1 in arrears:    

     A reminder SMS text message is sent to the tenant

     Day 2 in arrears:    

     A reminder SMS text message is sent to the tenant and a follow-up phone call is                                       made.

     Day 3 in arrears:    

     A 14 day notice to remedy the breach is posted to the tenant.

     Day 4-6 in arrears:

     An application to Ministry of Business, Employment and Innovation (MBIE) is made for the      Termination of Tenancy and the tenant is advised via SMS message.


6.  Extensive Advertising of Your Property

Online Ads, Open Homes and our High Traffic Office.


7.  Get Great Tenants

8.  Property Inspections Every 3 Months

9.  Maintenance and Repairs Dealt With Immediately

You have control of your property. Give us the authority - we get it done. 

You have the ability to be as involved in the management of your property as much as you wish. While we will look after the collection of rent and the filling of tenancy vacancies, you can choose to carry out all of your own maintenance (and/or use your own tradespeople) or we’ll happily organise maintenance activities on your behalf.


10. Satisfaction Guaranteed

 We stand behind our reputation and if something’s not right we’ll put it right – you have our word on this.
