Property Investment - The Legalities

There are several legal scenarios that can arise from property management so it is essential that you are up to date with the latest legislations.

If you choose to hire the help of an agent, ensure that they have a proven record with property management.

From the very beginning of a tenancy, your Harveys agent will ensure the correct processes are carried out to help put you in the best possible position.

The condition reports and Tenancy Agreement are likely to be the most important documents in the entire tenancy process. Choosing to use an agent can ensure all the initial paperwork is prepared correctly.

Your Harveys agent can also take quick, effective action should any legal issues arise during the tenancy period.

These can include handling complaints from neighbours’, taking the necessary steps to avoid vacant possession, serving notices if a tenant does not pay rent and a variety of other situations.

As a landlord, you may find that disputes over late rent - or situations where rent has not been paid at all - have the potential become difficult and emotional if you are dealing directly with your tenant. Your Harveys agent can work to help diffuse these situations and come up with fair, objective compromises and solutions that take the needs of all parties into account.

In the event your property has been damaged and you need to appear before a tribunal, having an experienced agent in your corner can make a world of difference. A Harveys agent can either handle the matter on your behalf or work with you to achieve a satisfactory outcome.
