What to do when a repair is required

29-May-2014

It’s a fact of life that sooner or later your investment property will need some repairs.

Before calling to advise you of the repair request, your property manager will make an assessment to determine if the repair is really necessary and will then advise you accordingly.

Upon receiving the repair request, it is advisable to act quickly to minimise disruption to your tenant and to prevent the repair from becoming a bigger problem later on.

A great way to handle small to medium (cost) repairs is to give your property manager a reasonable expenditure limit to work with so that work can be done quickly in order to maintain your property and keep a good relationship with your tenant.
