Professional Rental Property Management by a Local Licenced Real Estate Brokerage
Michael J Preston, the Broker of Record at Lakeview Realty Inc., assures you of professional services you can trust. As a member of the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA.ca), Lakeview Realty is bound by numerous regulations and guidelines that assure you as an investor of honesty and integrity as a client of Lakeview Property Management.
Screening and Managing Tenants
Your real estate investment hinges on having a good tenant in place. Vacancies can be a drag on your investment, and on your bottom line profits. We’ve screened thousands of tenants for two decades. We have the temperament and knowledge to manage tenants and set expectations for their use of your property. We also have the skills to deal with tenant issues from noise complainants to eviction notices.
Rent Collection and Basic Accounting
Month-to-month expenses and rental income are at the centre of your rental property. We ensure rent is collected and summarize your bills and invoices, so you know where you stand financially at all times.
Rent collection can be very annoying and time-consuming. We stay on top of tenants & immediately follow up on any rent collection issues. We also allow tenants to pay electronically, which is convenient for everyone.
Bill Payment Services
Staying on top of paying property tax, utilities and repair bills can be time-consuming and frustrating. Especially, if you are on vacation or out of the country. Missed payments can result in late charges and credit risks. We make sure that the bills are paid on time.
At the end of the year, we will send you a year end summary of all the expenses by type. When tax preparation time occurs, you won’t have to collect all of your rental income invoices as all paid invoices will appear in your year end summary.
Physical Property Maintenance
Inside or out we have the staff and experience to deal with any issues with the structure of your property. This includes general maintenance, lawn care, and prep for a new tenant.
We will respond to emergency repair calls from tenants, unplug toilets or to fix or replace broken appliances. We will tidy the yard in the spring, cut the grass in summer, shovel the snow in winter, rake the leaves in the fall, as well as clean out the eaves troughs and coordinate repairs to the physical structure of the building. We do all this so you don’t have to.
Remodeling and Renovation Services
Remodeling and renovating are a powerful means of transforming a rental property’s value and income potential. Our experienced renovation team has executed numerous projects from simple floor installations to complete make-overs. We have the skills and professional resources to successfully add real value to your property should you sell and to its current investment income.
