What Landlords Must Know Before Leaving Town

Whether you’re going on an extended holiday, have been transferred to another city or have decide to make a move to a lifestyle location, there are so many things to do when you decide to leave town long-term.

During our years of experience in the residential rental property market, we've seen too many self-managing landlords fail to sufficiently prepare their investment property before leaving Wellington.

This is usually because they're unaware of important checks that must be completed to ensure their investment remains profitable and in good condition while they're away.

Unfortunately, this leaves their rental properties at risk of the following problems:

  • Loss of profits

  • High tenant turnover

  • Difficult preventative maintenance problems occurring while they’re away, causing expensive property damage

  • Administration mistakes and workload

  • Unknowingly breaching the Residential Tenancies Act

  • High stress levels for landlords and tenants that could have been avoided

Complete our checklist to avoid these problems and others, to maintain a successful, profitable investment, and minimise the chance of unwanted surprises.

Our Checklist Explains:

  • Administration details that must be seen to before leaving the region.

  • Maintenance checks that must be completed to prevent issues that could reduce your property's income and cause unnecessary stress on yourself & tenants.

  • Relevant laws that apply to landlords leaving New Zealand.
