How to keep your home warm and dry


Winter is here! Your home could be experiencing condensation, which is probably the most common moisture-related issue during the winter months.

Moisture build-up in the home isn’t just caused by rainy days and leaky roofs. Our day-to-day living contributes too. Washing, cooking and even breathing all add moisture to the air.

Landlords: what will my property rent for?

The first question many landlords have is what will my property rent for?

If you’ve been managing your own investments for a while you may not have looked at whether your rents are keeping up with the market. Private landlords will often leave rents as is, for fear of upsetting stable tenants. 

However it is possible to maintain fair market rent and keep good tenants. Our 3 - step rent review process keeps your investment up to date with the market, while also keeping quality tenants in the property.
