With Commercial Property Managers … What Should You Expect?


OF COURSE, everyone’s expectations will differ as to how your property should be managed. But over the years, my clients have provided a few clues. And these have been rather helpful in creating a simple checklist.

Good Property Management is the Key to Your SuccessAnd so once you’ve finally acquired a suitable Commercial property, any ongoing Management will need to make sure that …

  • Your property remains leased to good tenants.
  • Those tenants pay their rentals by the due date.
  • Your managers will act as if the property were theirs.
  • Your tenants will be treated as your “business partners”.
  • That maintenance will be fully detailed and carried out cost-effectively – but always with quality workmanship.
  • And all maintenance is undertaken by reliable tradespeople.
  • You are notified well before each tenancy becomes vacant.
  • Every possible step is taken to keep that tenant or re-let the property.
  • Your rentals are reviewed at appropriate intervals, to reflect fair market rent.
  • Timely payment of any outgoings occurs on your behalf.
  • Your monthly statement and rental payments are sent to you promptly.
  • Your property is regularly inspected.
  • All Essential Services requirements are met.
  • You are alerted to any Regulation changes affecting the property.
  • You receive accurate advice on any insurance requirements.
  • All opportunities to “add value” are maximised.
  • Your property is kept competitive in the marketplace.

Obviously, this is not intended as an exhaustive list, but merely a basic guide.
