Rental Synopsis April to August 2019
Landlords seeking the security of longer term leases (2-3 years) will need to discuss rental increase options with their property manager to ensure they don’t miss out on potential gains – these options include dollar figures or percentages every six or 12 months agreed at the beginning of the lease by all parties – you cannot increase the rent every six months to “market value” anymore, this option no longer exists.
Tenants will look at increased rents to stay in a property but expect demands such as the installation of security measures (especially in South Hedland) with the increase. These options should be considered as they offer long term benefits to the property for insurance and depreciation – as well as meaning the property will continually be tenanted.
