Landlord FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I switch agencies whilst my property is currently tenanted?

Yes. Provided you haven’t recently engaged an agency via writing to market and secure a tenant, you are able to nominate a new managing agent. (despite any initial or existing agreement)

Can I sell my property while it is tenanted?

Yes. Provided the relevant notices and courtesies are shown to tenants during their occupancy of your property, you are able to sell your property at any time.

What are my obligations to complete maintenance on my property?

Landlords have a duty under the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 to ensure their tenanted properties are in reasonably clean condition upon commencement of a lease and that they are kept in good repair. Urgent repairs must be carried out within 48 hours. During business hours Ristic can be contacted on office hours, while after hours we provide an emergency maintenance phone line, monitored by the on duty property manager. Ristic arranges repairs and maintenance on behalf of landlords, whilst always contacting owners and providing quotes from reliable tradespersons if required.

Do I need Landlords Insurance?

While it is optional, Ristic strongly recommends you take up Landlords Insurance if you own or are about to own an investment property.
For a reasonable and tax deductible amount per annum, it can safe guard your rental income as well as protect the condition of your property.

What are your fees to manage my property?

Ristic offers choice. Because every property is different and every need is different, we have a selection of packages that our property managers would be glad to elaborate on depending on your requirements. Call us today to discuss.

 

“Fantastic experience. The team at Ristic were professional, personable and very reliable. The team handled the leasing of our property with professionalism and the care and compassion we wanted when handing over our first home. Being new to the landlord scene, Ristic explained everything, taking the time needed and made us feel comfortable with the process. Better yet our home was on the market extremely quickly and leased just as fast. Ristic didn’t just jump at any application, taking the time to talk us through our options and the applications that they had received. We have now purchased and built a new home, as well as entrusted Ristic with leasing our home and could not be happier. Would recommend the team at a heartbeat”  Landlord – Rocky C
