No Letting Fees
Bolitho Property Management does not charge letting fees to tenants. This means that tenants actively seek out and recommend our properties. Most letting fees are equivalent to one weeks’ rent plus GST: this is an extra cost of $350-$550 for a family home. We believe that quality tenants are often people who have a number of homes available to them, and landlords and property managers are keen to rent their houses to these tenants, thus by not charging a letting fee we have a competitive edge in attracting these quality tenants.
Through our extensive advertising tenants looking for a home will always have the opportunity to view your property – we advertise through Trademe, our own website, signs onsite, and email campaigns.
Fixed Term Tenancies
At Bolitho’s the first rental period will always be a fixed term of approximately one year – never a periodic tenancy. After that initial fixed term tenancy period it is then negotiable. This provides stability and commitment for your tenant and many now will not take periodic tenancies for fear of being given notice soon after. Note that this means a tenant does have a right to remain for the fixed term even if you sell – but we can alter the contract if both parties agree and we do try and negotiate for both parties.
Our tenants know that we thoroughly check the property before they take over and insist that it is spotlessly clean and everything is working. We have loyal tenants that recommend us so we know we have it right.
Bolitho Property Management is able to find your tenant quickly, we advertise extensively and we do not charge tenants a letting fee. Therefore renting through us is not only more affordable for tenants but also easier.
In addition, we now have an online 24/7 booking system where tenants can book themselves into a viewing time and the property manager’s diary is automatically updated. This allows potential tenants to do their research and communicate their wishes instantly, even outside of traditional business hours.
