    How do I get paid?

    The tenant pays rent according to the schedule set forth in the Tenancy Agreement. We collect rent for you and transfer the funds on a pre-determined schedule directly into a bank account you’ve designated. 

    Do you cater only to investors from Auckland?

    Absolutely not. Our team will work with any investor who owns residential real estate in the Auckland area, no matter where that investor lives or works. We have a multilingual staff that will monitor your investments as if they were their own. 

  • Who pays to advertise the property?

    Advertising on specific websites is free. For a list of the free advertising opportunities we offer clients, contact our property management team.

    Who arranges repairs & maintenance?

    Our full service team has developed a network of reliable contractors who provide quality repairs at an excellent value. Your professional property manager will obtain quotes for maintenance and will work with you to avoid the unnecessary costs that sometimes accompany repairs.

    Do you stay up to date on the changes in the residential tenancies act?

    Absolutely. One of the advantages of our full service property management services is that we know the ins and outs of the Residential Tenancies Act, including the recent changes implemented in October 2010.

  • How does Alpha attract the best tenants for my property?

    Good tenants are good for business. We work hard to find the right tenant for your unique property. From advertising on high traffic websites to identifying potential problem applicants, our team takes the hassle out of finding high-quality tenants for your property.

    How do tenants apply?

    A prospective tenant fills out an application form as well as provides photo I.D. to verify their identity. When they’ve submitted the information, our team will perform the appropriate credit and reference checks.

    Are tenants required to have insurance?

    Tenants aren’t required to have insurance, but we strongly suggest a home and contents policy to protect their possessions.

  • What does Alpha do if a tenant misses a payment?

    We have a zero-tolerance policy for renters in arrears. Our goal is to ensure the tenant lives up to the financial obligations outlined in their Tenancy Agreement. When a tenant does not make a scheduled payment, we issue a notice, as required by law, which informs them they have breached the agreement and requires them to remedy the issue.

    If a tenant falls into arrears, how soon will they be evicted?

    We can apply to the Tenancy Tribunal for eviction if the tenant is 21 days in arrears. However, keep in mind the eviction order may not be issued until 2 to 3 weeks after the application has been submitted.

    How often can I increase the rent?

    Rents may only be increased once every 180 days, according to the Residential Tenancies Acts. In addition, the landlord must provide the tenant with 60 days written notice prior to the date the increase goes into effect.

  • How often must the property be inspected?

    Property inspections help landlords keep costs low by pinpointing the little problems that can become big problems if they aren’t addressed promptly. Inspections also identity issues that a tenant may be required to resolve, such as carpet staining, etc.

    Should I offer my property furnished or unfurnished?

    Many tenants have their own possessions and prefer to use them when living in a rental. However, there is a market for furnished properties because of the convenience they offer. 

    Will I need to renovate my property?

    Does the kitchen need to be painted? Is it time to replace the worn carpet on the stairs? Landlords often find themselves asking questions about these upkeep issues. Our team will work with you to determine if upgrades, re-dos, and renovations are necessary and, if they are, whether they should be addressed immediately or if they can wait until the property is between tenants.

  • Who is responsible for mould?

    The landlord is responsible for mitigating mould problems. The best way to prevent this common problem is to provide adequate ventilation. Install dehumidifiers, secure window stays, and bathroom fans to reduce the condensation that triggers mould issues.

    What happens if I want to sell the property or move into it?

    A tenant has the right to live in a property until the end date set forth in the Tenancy Agreement. If you decide to sell the property, you must give the tenant written notification that the property is on the market. If a potential buyer wants to view the property, you’re also obligated to provide the tenant with notice of the inspection.
