A well-presented property attracts good tenants. It is important to present the property clean and carpets steam cleaned. It is a good idea to attend to minor repairs, tidy the grounds (if applicable) and remove rubbish and any unwanted furniture or items.

Advise your insurance company or broker that the property is being rented and review your total insurance situation.
We strongly recommend all owners have Landlord Protection Insurance

Arrange final readings for the electricity, gas and phone, etc in your name at the appropriate time, ie when the property is let.
If you would like us to pay your regular accounts eg. Council, Water, Revenue SA, please provide us with a copy of these accounts, and we can arrange for the invoices to be sent to us or alternatively you can send them to us.
If you have regular Pest inspection or treatments on your home, please notify us of your preferred Pest Inspector and we can contact them to send letters/reminders/ reports/ invoices to us to take care of for you, alternatively we can recommend a local Pest Inspector to utilize if you wish.
Please supply us with a complete inventory (if applicable) of the property including, where possible, make and model numbers of appliances, this is very helpful if they need repairing.
Have any overdue services attended to and ensure filters are clean eg: air conditioners, heaters, water softeners, hot water services, washing machines, dryers etc.
Leave manufacturer’s instructions and other useful information appropriate to your property eg: instructions for air conditioning, oven / stoves/ washing machines etc and list them on the inventory.
