FAQs for Landlords
In order to help you better understand who we are and what we do, we have put together this list of answers to the most frequently asked questions we receive.
Why is property maintenance so important for landlords?
As tenants are entitled by law to a healthy, habitable living environment, it’s in the landlord’s best interests to ensure property maintenance is carried out periodically to prevent considerable property damage or missed tenancy income.
What are the benefits of property maintenance?
By investing in property maintenance, you will benefit from costs saved in the long run, as you will uncover any maintenance problems that can be attended to before they get noticeably worse. A property’s value is significantly lower if it’s not property maintained, leading to a decrease in rental income and investment.
Effective property maintenance can also attract good tenants, as a neglected property may lead to renting out to the wrong clientele who will treat it the same way.
Are property maintenance fees tax deductible?
Yes – you can offset expenses relating to the running and maintenance of your property against your tax bill.
What are rental property maintenance expenses?
These include routine, seasonal, appliance and emergency maintenance, as well as replacements, landscaping, painting, flooring, property damage, cleaning costs, pest control, inspections and waste management.
How does property maintenance differ from property management?
Property management refers to the day–to–day tasks such as repairs and refurbishment, and is typically focused on the short term. Property maintenance, on the other hand, refers to the continued care of the property – ensuring all appliances and structural elements are properly maintained and operational in the long term.
