PAYING RENT
Your rent is due on the first day of each month.  If you are at any stage experiencing difficulty making the rent by its due date, we request that you call the property manager prior to the due date to explain this so that the landlord can be informed to avoid them receiving penalties for late payments.

INSURANCE
It is required that all tenants have insurance coverage on their own contents in a rented premise. It is not the landlords responsibility and nor is it covered under their building policy.

Most of all the problems experienced by tenants, landlords and property managers can be overcome by prompt and professional and honest communication. It is the tenant’s main responsibility to keep the property clean and to meet their financial obligations. It is the landlord’s major responsibility to ensure the property is maintained and the tenant has a peaceful environment. It is the responsibility of the property manager to oversee the whole process. This can only be achieved if we all play our part so please remember we are here to help you, but only can if you help us.
