Thank you for choosing Ray White Frankston

Thank you for choosing to list your investment property with the team here at Ray White Frankston. By choosing us as your managing agent of choice, we look forward to maintaining the highest level of service with you now and in the future.

On this page, you will be able to access all the resources and information you will need to make informed decisions whilst working with Ray White Frankston.

We wanted to make accessing this information as easy as possible. Of course, your property manager is always available to answer any questions you may have and will be your main point of contact.

Now, let’s get your investment portfolio all set up and ready to go.

Let’s set up your Rental Provider portal.

As a Rental Provider with Ray White Frankston, you will have access to your own portal. This will give you real time access to all the important information surrounding your investment property and financial documentation. You will first need to register your email address against your investment property and create your own unique password. You can securely access your property and financial information online by clicking here.

In PropertyMe, you can:

View a real-time snapshot of your property and rental details

  • Track financial activity including monthly activity, expenses breakdown and more
  • Monitor the status of any outstanding jobs
  • Drill into inspections to see comments, images and any follow-up actions
  • View and download documents such as statements and bills

If you have any questions regarding your online portal, more information about Owner Access can be found on the PropertyMe website and you can view our own update by watching our video online.

Understanding your current tenancy.

Once your new property manager reaches out to introduce themselves to you, they will be sending you copies of the important information pertaining to your current tenancy. This information will include a copy of your latest rental agreement, advice on when the rent was last reviewed, a copy of the entry condition report and a copy of the latest periodic inspection report. All of this information is also available within your Owner portal as listed above, so this information can be kept in a central place, for ease of access.

Understanding compliance, minimum standards and the 2021 Rental reforms and how they will impact your tenancy.

In 2018, a review of the current Residential Tenancies Act 1997 was completed and a number of draft reforms were proposed. On the 29th March 2021, 130 reforms were formally introduced into the Act and now provide for a clear set of minimum standards rental providers must meet to offer a property for lease on the rental market. Of these reforms, the ones you need to consider prior to entering into a rental agreement are:

  1. Understanding the Rental reforms and how they will impact your tenancy. You can also see the answers to our most frequently asked questions.
  2. Know your obligations for gas, electrical and smoke alarm compliance. Choose from four of our preferred suppliers, the pricelist is available here for review
  3. Does your property meet the new Rental Minimum Standards? Access a Rental Minimum Standards checklist here.

On the 21st March, the Allan Labor Government announced they were establishing a new renting taskforce to crack down on non-compliant properties. This includes any properties that may not meet the Rental Minimum Standards. You can read the press release here.

With the annoucement of the Consumer Affairs Renting Taskforce, we are reaching out to any Rental Providers that have outstanding compliance or rectification works to ensure these are actioned promptly to avoid fines for non-compliance. Letting a renter move into a rental property that doesn’t meet these minimum standards is a criminal offence, with maximum penalties of over $11,000 for individuals and $57,000 for companies.

Rental provider Insurance, comparing the different policies available to you.

No one particular Insurance policy is going to be the right fit for all rental providers, so we do encourage you to shop around, speak to a few different providers and make an informed decision about which policy best fits you, your investment property and your budget. It is important to review the product disclosure statement for all available policies as knowing what you are and are not covered for is important.

Whilst we don’t preference one policy over another, we do recommend you speak to the following insurance companies as they are rental provider specific providers. In our experience, generalist insurers do have a lot of loop holes that, whilst cheaper options, can leave you uncovered in the event you need to call upon your insurance provider.

  1. Terri Scheer Landlord and Building Insurance
  2. Property Insurance Plus
  3. EBM Insurance Providers

Ease of communication is what sets us apart.

Each Senior Property Manager within our team works to a high standard with checklists to ensure a seamless transition from new business to the property management team. We understand that communication is key during this transition and each property manager in our business has their own direct phone line so you can reach out to them to discuss your property, bypassing reception. Our property managers are also very responsive via email and will endeavour to return all calls and emails prior to 4:00pm each day or before 10:00am the next business day if after 4:00pm.

If you cannot get through to your property manager because they are in a meeting or conducting inspections, please feel free to leave them a voicemail and they will get back to you at their earliest convenience.

We undertake regular inhouse and corporate training sessions to ensure we are up to speed on all the latest legislation and customer service techniques available to our industry.

Now let’s get to the important stuff: Rental Disbursements, Inspections and Reports.

Rental Disbursements | Ray White Frankston runs rental provider disbursements on Tuesday’s and Friday’s. Funds will generally clear overnight, however depending on your banking institution, this could be up to three business days. You can expect to receive a full statement emailed from our office on the day of disbursement and funds will clear through shortly thereafter. Rents are receipted daily. We offer three payment methods for your renters, Direct Debit, BPay or Centrepay.

Your first disbursement will come to you on the day the renter’s tenancy commences.

Regular Inspections | Your Property Manager will schedule all routine inspections in the first week of the month and will send you an invite to attend if you wish to do so. All inspections are completed by an experienced property manager and a detailed photographic and written report is supplied to you via email within 24/48 hours of completion of the inspection.

Our property managers will use these reports to give you updates on the tenancy, the condition of the property and make any recommendations for suggested maintenance, general improvements or upkeep to maintain your investment property. Maintenance specials are also available throughout the year through our preferred trade suppliers and these will be offered to you throughout the year by way of email communication.

After the initial three month inspection, you can expect routine inspections will be conducted every six months for the duration of your tenancy. We encourage rental providers to attend these inspections if you can.
