Territory Real Estate have dedicated Property Management staff who are fully trained and have an excellent knowledge of the Act and the industry. Our staff are known for their attention to detail, have a strong ethic of personal service and to exceed your exceptions. Most agencies work for the tenants but we work for the client and the other point of difference is nearly all Principals are sales trained but our principal has over 17 years in the Property Management Industry. Property Management is not a job “its a passion”.
We accompany all prospective tenant/s to property we do not give them keys. The prospective tenant/s must complete a tenancy application form and provide 100 points eg provide proof of identity with current address, photo ID, income statement or payslips. We check all references and their employment history but most importantly a good Property Manager will go with their gut feeling and this comes from experience.
Changing Agencies – Not Happy With Your Current Agency
It’s easier than you think as we do all the hard work for you and it costs you nothing. We contact the agency, inform the tenant of the changes, we also collect all the paperwork and keys from the current agency.
Smoke Alarm Compliance
NT Fire and Emergency Services recommends all residential accommodation be fitted with photoelectric type smoke alarms, smoke alarms either hard wired or powered by a 10 year lithium battery. Property owners must install smoke alarms complying with Australian Standard 3786-1993 outside sleeping areas and one on each level of the dwelling.
It is highly recommended to have “Landlord Insurance”. We can provide information from insurance companies so that you can make an informed choice and by talking with the insurer you can be assured that you have the right cover in place.
