Blog Update 2/08
I hope you're having a great trip!
By way of update;
We have been in Brisbane this week viewing numerous properties
We are working through the due-diligence on two in particular that we think might tick the boxes
We will let you know if we think they are worthwhile pursuing and what our proposed strategy is in the coming days.
We carried out our first inspection last weekend and the property was well presented and the tenants are happy
There were a few items raised that we’re quoting and will come back to you once we have those costs, but as an FYI:
9 light bulbs have blown and we are having these replaced (it's the landlord's responsibility in the ACT!)
Schedule C02 test inspection ($297), this a yearly fee and required by law to ensure there are no gas leaks
The side fence on the LHS of the driveway is getting worse. The wood is rotten and broken in several areas and the fence has thick foliage (ivy/vines) adding further weight
We are having this quoted for a remedial option and replacement option and can include this in the long-term maintenance plan
There are a few bills coming up and they are;
Smoke alarm testing (again compliance), $99 and due 31-Aug
We will pay from your rent
ICON Water bill for 1-April to 3—June is overdue to the lateness of the handover from Independent
The payment is processing as a Direct Debit.
Please let me know if you have any questions?
