How often will you inspect my property?

What is involved if I want to list my property for sale?

Sandy Evans Realty Ltd will appraise the property and then list it for sale. This can be a very delicate situation and it is extremely important it is handled professionally and efficiently. It is our job to ensure you and your tenants' interests are protected. If the property is sold with vacant possession we will issue your tenants with 42 days notice as required by the Residential Tenancies Act 1986, finalise the tenancy and disburse the bond by the due date.

What will you do if my tenant becomes in arrears?

Sandy Evans Realty Ltd rent collection is computer monitored enabling us to act very quickly when a rent payment is missed. The debt recovery process commences immediately. Whilst we take every possible action to resolve the matter it may be necessary to take the tenant through the Mediation process or to the Tenancy Tribunal. If this is the case you will not be charged for our time.

Do you take a bond?

Yes. The Residential Tenancies Act requires that no more than four weeks bond be collected. Unless otherwise agreed to, Sandy Evans Realty Ltd will consider two/three weeks for the bond to be paid. The bond is paid before the tenant takes possession and held by the Bond Centre until the tenant vacates.
