Owner Information

Information for Landlords

We have recently introduced rentals on demand to all of our landlords. This is a 24/7 document portal where landlords can obtain monthly statements, end of year statements and landlord correspondence.

Brand New Homes

Brand new homes may require a telephone line connection to allow your tenant to connect their phone and internet. There will be a connection fee of $240.00 reimbursed to the tenant.

Our office will arrange for garbage and recycling bins to be delivered to the property.

Tenant Information

It is our duty to ensure that the tenant is well informed as to what is expected under the tenancy agreement. This includes ground maintenance; strata title laws, payment of rent and their behaviour as well as their guests. Every tenant has the lease verbally explained to them and documentation is signed to ensure that they understand the rules.

Repairs and Maintenance

Shortland Property Management is available to both landlords and tenants 24 hours a day for any necessary repairs. This enables us to keep control of repairs and costs. We will have maintenance workers on standby (or you can use your own tradesmen) to carry out any repairs that are necessary. Repairs are monitored closely and action is taken according to your instructions.
