Property Management

The highly experienced Property Management Team of Richardson & Wrench Bargara has pleasure in outlining some of the services we offer.

Our management services are completely computerised and state of the art. Landlords enjoy monthly e-statements detailing all incoming rent and outgoing disbursements with copies any paid invoices. All funds are credited to the landlords account as cleared funds so the money can be drawn on immediately.

We keep a database of quality prospective tenants looking to rent in our area, so any landlord can rest assured that if their property is available for lease, it will be leased to a quality tenant at the highest rent in the quickest timeframe.

Our available rentals are displayed on 8 different websites with Professional Photography to ensure the landlords property looks it best for potential tenants.

We accompany all interested people to the property. This has two advantages. Firstly, we can assess the prospective tenant’s suitability and presentation and secondly, ensure the property is locked and secured when leaving.

We check all details on a prospective tenants application form, in particular, tenancy databases – we ensure the tenant is not listed as a default tenant with another agent, previous rent references and employment details. We then communicate with the owner, regarding details and conditions of the new tenancy to gain their approval to proceed with the new tenancy.

We organise the preparation and signing of Tenancy Agreements and Rental Bond lodgement paperwork. We then carry out a thorough Entry Condition Report with full Internal/External photos.

We ensure compliance with Smoke Alarm and Water Efficiency legislation.

We ensure the tenant maintains the property in accordance with the Tenancy Agreement. Thorough internal routine inspections of the property every 12 weeks and then a written report is sent to the owner, at which time any necessary maintenance items are drawn to the landlords attention. Should any repairs be required, we have access to local reputable tradespeople and the invoice can be deducted from Trust Funds held on the landlords behalf, thus showing all details on their monthly and end of financial year statements.

We are able to offer a Landlords Protection Insurance Policy, the premium of which is fully tax deductible. This policy caters especially for properties that are rented. Many owners may be surprised to find that the normal household policy does not cover the property once it is tenanted.

We assure all our valued clients of our best endeavours at all times.

Hi Jan

I would also ask you to pass on to your team that I am truly impressed with the manner in which you and your team have dealt with my endeavour to find a temporary rental home for my family.

The manner in which phone calls were answered, messages passed on , calls returned and the communication which was maintained with us has left a lasting impression with me.

Hoping to do business with you in the future, as I am considering selling my property in North Bundaberg and purchasing In the Bargara area in the near future.

Again, Thank you very much.

“Just a quick note to let you know how pleased my wife and I are about the service we have received from R&W Bargara and the team in respect of the new tenants who have just taken up a 3 year lease at, what I believe, a higher than market rent. Great job from a fantastic team. Thank you very much!”

“Thank you R&W Bargara for your excellent service in the management of my home over the last 3 years. Recently, your speedy and efficient manner with which you organised the kitchen renovation, re-painted and polished the floors and re-leased the property with only a 2 week vacancy. The increased rent was also nice. It is a real pleasure to deal with your team.”

“Recently one of my investment properties had a change of tenant, R&W Bargara Property Management Team negotiated a much higher rent than I expected to receive and more importantly found me a great tenant.”

“We recently appointed R & W Bargara to manage our investment property, the level of service received was leap years ahead of what we had previously received at another local real estate. A big thank you and keep up the good work”
