What if interest rates go up?

A. When you are the Landlord, rises in interest rates are a good thing not a bad thing…

  • You simply increase your rent to cover the interest rate rises. (SAS recommends that you have a market rental adjustment increase as part of your tenancy agreement, so it happens automatically).
  • Interest rate rises are an indication of high inflation, so it means that the value of your investment property is going up also.
What if I get bad tenants?

A. SAS recommends Landlord Protection Insurance, which will cover you against any unpaid rent or damage to your property due to bad tenants.

Who will look after my rental property?

A. SAS only works with professional property management companies that take care of everything for you such as; –

  • Selecting and reference checking tenants
  • Regular property inspections
  • Maintenance issues
  • Collection and payment of rent
  • Dealing with any emergency issues
