We are an Ottawa, Canada based company that specializes in managing the personal residences in Ottawa belonging to Canadian Foreign Service personnel, while they serve abroad. We bring more than 40 years experience in the service as an MCO, and more than 30 years of those in service abroad, to our company. We provide the kind of property management we wish we had for our properties while we were abroad. Not living abroad? Not a problem! We manage properties for locals too!
With over 40 years of experience, we are one of the oldest property management companies in Ottawa. Our journey began out of necessity: E&S Property Management’s founder Scott Munro was himself a property owner and member of the Canadian Foreign Services. As a result, he was abroad quite a bit. One day, Scott realized that he needed somebody to manage his properties while he was abroad as he could not manage the day-to-day business while he was away from home. This dilemma sparked the idea of founding a property management company specializing in the needs of members of the Canadian Foreign Services. Together with his wife Elaine (hence the name “E&S” as in Elaine & Scott), he started the Ottawa property management company. Today, E&S Property Management takes care of a diverse portfolio of properties in Ottawa –not only just of members of the Canadian Foreign Service. If you are looking for an experienced company in Ottawa that offers residential property management services with a personal touch, E&S Property Management is the right fit.
Property Management Ottawa
We offer comprehensive and personalized residential property management Ottawa. Having an experienced Ottawa property manager taking care of your property is a great way to reduce stress and avoid the pitfalls associated with property management in Ottawa, such as hiring sub-par contractors for repairs or ending up with problematic tenants.
What We Do
Owning a property can quickly turn into a full-time job. We know because we literally made it our business. At E&S Property Management, we offer comprehensive residential property management services: from rent collection to recommending upgrades to your property, we can take care of all aspects of running a (rental) property.
Landlord Services: Being a landlord requires a lot of your time. It begins with finding suitable and reliable tenants but once you have found those the day-to-day business of collecting rent, regular inspection, arranging repairs and answering all kinds of inquiries only begins. Not to mention the administrative tasks! And when your current tenants give their notice and the final walk-through inspection is done, you have to get the place ready for the next tenants to move in and the whole cycle begins again.
Because so much work goes into being a good landlord, many property owners look for a property management company Ottawa to help them. E&S Property Management is your Ottawa property management company that has the resources and know-how to not only help you during the entire rent cycle but also on the administrative side, including financial statements and properly marketing your property once it goes back on the market. Plus, we allow you to be as involved in the management of your property as you want. Whether you want to be relatively hands-off or still largely involved –the choice is yours.
Tenant Selection: We can take care of the entire tenant selection process, from the initial showing of the property to the application process and suggesting suitable tenants. Plus, our experience with tenants of other properties allows us to draw from a well of potential, familiar candidates.
Maintenance Services: Any property will require occasional repairs. We can handle arranging and overseeing those. Your additional advantage with E&S Property Management is that our Ottawa property managers have a number of reliable quality contractors on file which can not only speed up the process but also guarantee satisfying results. Additionally to arranging and overseeing repairs, we will also inspect the property regularly and can help you with suggestions regarding potential upgrades.
Strategic Marketing: Once a property goes on the market, the race to fill that vacancy begins. Our experienced Ottawa property managers know how to place your property on the market effectively, shortening your vacancy and saving you money in the process.
Financial Service: We can help our landlords navigate through the financial aspect of renting out a property. From collecting rent to preparing annual financial statements, our Ottawa property management services include full financial service.
Representation: While it will hopefully never be required, we will be able to represent you in all disputes with tenants before the Landlord Tenant Board.
As a tenant, problems or questions can come up at any time. Especially in cases of emergencies, not getting a hold of your landlord can be extremely frustrating. E&S Property Management offers premier and comprehensive Ottawa property management services, including tenant services. Whatever the tenant’s need is: they can count on us to take care of them in a timely manner. We collect rent, replace lost keys, and the respective Ottawa property managerwill be available for any emergencies, even after hours.

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.
You should do your due diligence before hiring a company for your Ottawa property management needs, including reviews from other clients. We decided to help you a little in that process and compiled a few testimonials below.
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.
