Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of having a property manager?
Property managers have a good list of trusted suppliers/ contractors that can handle repairs on your property, they’ll have a realistic view of what your property is worth, and they’ll be able to give you suggestions and tips of what you need to change if the property isn’t renting. Property managers will also have access to prospects as their current tenants always looking for upgrades or friends and coworkers moving into Ottawa.
What is included in property management?
If the property already has a tenant, we will take over day to day task such as collecting rents, arranging repairs, and the accounting for rental property, and we can arrange paying for any repairs out of the rental income.
We can also help to find a tenant. This process will start by us listing the property for rent and arranging showings with potential tenants. We’ll do a thorough application process and then run results by you for approval. Once an approved tenant has been found, we will sign a lease, and do a move in Inspection report with the tenant. After that, we’ll do all the items included in regular management.
How much of a deposit can the landlord ask for?
The landlord is allowed to ask for a deposit of an amount up to one months’ rent, and this can be applied only to the cover last month rent before moving out.
How do you screen tenants?
Potential tenants are put through a thorough application process after they have met with a property manager at the property they are interested in renting.
E&S managed my property for the three years that I was away from Ottawa. They took very good care of my home and I would certainly use them again if/when I move away. Highly recommend.
As tenants renting from E & S Management and landlords of our own home rented out west we can appreciate the great job that E&S did as a rental management company. They promptly responded to any of our concerns or issues, usually responding to emails within the hour. As people renting out our own house we appreciated that they took good care of the rental house.
Since I chose E&S to manage my apartment, I couldn’t be better represented. I live abroad most of the time and know that I’ll receive regular updates about the tenants, their expectations, what can be improved or fixed. E&S is the perfect intermediary between a landlord and his tenants and deals with all the responsibilites of both parties in a very professional way.
Sad to loose this company as the property managers. They have been great to deal with always there for our needs! We were going to sign another lease but depending who the management company is we might be asking E&S to see what else they have in their portfolio.
To quote Joni Mitchell. ” You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. ” It was our first time being with an agency. All problems were resolved as quickly as possible. We have since had to rent a new place from a different agency and are really surprised at how poor the property management is. This proves that not all property management companies are as good as e and s.
