Property management update MAY – JUNE 2013
DO YOU HAVE A PROPERTY WITH GARDENS, LAWNS OR A POOL?
Do you ever worry about the care of your property? The external presentation of a property is equally important as the internal care.
To offer peace of mind to property owners (landlords) we can include garden, lawns and pool care in the weekly rent when
a tenancy comes up for renewal or at the change of a tenancy.
Including this maintenance in the rent can give everyone peace of mind.
Peace of mind that they are maintained for the landlord, peace of mind for the tenant that they don’t have to maintain these important areas of the property and peace of mind to us as your managing agent that the property is being well-cared for.
Please feel welcome to contact our Real Estate Agency to discuss this further.
POOL SAFETY NSW
There are pool safety compliance regulations in every State. This compliance is governed by council by-laws or State legislative regulations and laws.
If your property has a pool it is vital that it is inspected by a professional pool inspector at each tenancy change-over to ensure that it complies with these safety requirements.
Failure to ensure that the pool and fence surrounds are safe can result in costly claims and possible penalties if there is an injury.
If your property has a pool, please feel welcome to contact our office to discuss the requirements.
Our office also conducts an internal management system on properties that have pools.

Elders Real Estate News
Our vacancy rate remains the same at 1.2%. The market is showing no signs or improvement at the moment and our open homes on average are only seeing 2–3 people inspecting them, of course properties that are cheaper than other comparable properties or those in excellent condition are still our most popular and rent the quickest!
A request from our Property Management Team, if you are going away and will be not easily accessible by mobile or email can you please let us know and provide us with an alternate contact or your permission to undertake urgent repairs at your property.
Whilst we understand that when you are going away there is a lot of things to remember, leaving us without access to anyone who holds your authority for repairs can be a costly exercise as your tenants are then authorised under the agreement to make their own urgent repairs which you have to pay for.
Lora El-Azzi has returned from maternity leave on a part time basis, many of you are very familiar with Lora who has been part of our team for some 12 years now. I am sure she will be looking forward to catching up with you!
