Managed vs. Non-Managed Properties

Managed vs. Non-Managed Properties

What does a managed property mean?

A managed property is an agreement between the Landlord and the managing agency. They are responsible for collecting the monthly rental, listing your property, the marketing of your property, and the agency will advise you of the current market rate for your property and what rental you should expect. Pricing your property correctly will ensure you do not have a vacant, non-income generating asset on your hands for too long. The agency will check all the potential tenants and qualify them based on affordability and work profile. This is a vital start to the process as the right tenant will make your letting journey a pleasant one.

At the start and end of the lease, the agent will conduct a handover inspection with the tenant, to agree upon the condition of the property, pre and post the occupancy. The agency will hold the deposit until the outgoing inspection has been completed and all repairs are done. The remaining deposit will then be released upon agreement by both the tenant and landlord, back to the tenant.

Throughout the lease contract, the agent will ensure the property is well maintained, and ensure all repairs and maintenance are completed, ensure the charges and utilities are up to date, taking care of any emergency repairs, and even project management on any alterations or upgrades you wish to do. In need, they will also assist with the eviction process, which on its own, can be a daunting task.

The managed lease is a full-service offering; however, it is often misconstrued that the agent is there to do everything and anything the landlord requires. This is not so and very often the agent will "go the extra mile" to provide services outside of the lease agreement to appease the landlord and tenant. It is important to understand what is being agreed upon in the lease agreement, and any additional services may come at an additional cost.

At the end of the lease period, the agent will also renegotiate a renewal of the lease or assist in finding a new tenant for your property.

What does a non-managed property mean?

A non-managed property is the same as a managed property up to the point of the tenant being placed. Once the landlord has approved the tenant's application, the agent will step away from the transaction and allow the landlord to manage the administration, accounting and maintenance of the property for the duration of the lease. Essentially a non-managed lease is a payment for placement of the tenant and this is where the services end.

Whilst it may seem simple to collect the monthly rental on a property and have a tenant live in your asset, the risks associated with managing a tenant, their rights, your obligations and legal ramifications of getting this vital part of the process wrong may well be worth allowing the specialists to help mitigate these pitfalls.

Whilst the above-mentioned points have been simplified to a large degree, it is important to be informed of the risks associated with managing your prized asset yourself. The legal and financial pitfalls are abundant.
