What is the difference between a property manager and a real estate agent?

Generally, real estate agents are focused on buying, selling, and renting real estate. A real estate agent can help you find a tenant, but that’s where their responsibilities will end. A property manager will stay with you after the tenant search and screen and continue to handle the operations of your rental. Our company is equiped to tenant your rental suite, and if you choose, continue management of your property.

What is The Landlord & Tenant Board?

The Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) was created by the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) on January 31, 2007. The RTA gives residential landlords and tenants rights and responsibilities and sets out a process for enforcing them. The RTA also sets out the process for resolving non-profit housing co-operative (“co-op”) eviction disputes. Learn more about LTB here.

What is the average fee for property management?

Property management fees vary based on these three business models.

Percentage of rent

In this common model, roughly 10-15% of the rent is charged as a management fee.

Flat fee

In this model, a set rate is charged per property or rental unit. LandLord Property & Rental Management uses this model. To calculate our fees visit our fee calculator.

Guaranteed rent

This model might be used for high demand short term rentals. The property management company pays rent to the landlord and is free to sublet the unit and generate profits at their own risk. If you are considering renting on short terms, be sure to learn your local laws.

What’s the difference between Property Management and Rental Management?

Property management and rental management both refer to the management of real estate investment property. However, managing real estate investments includes two main functions; the management of the property, it’s maintenance, repairs, and inspections; and the management of the rental, it’s profitability, and tenant relationship. Read more about our approach to tenant management in our blog post here.

What’s the difference between renting from a landlord or a property management company?

A professional property management company should have guidelines and processes to deal with the various scenarios relating to ongoing management. For example, LandLord Property & Rental Management has a step by step process to search and screen tenants, a standard lease for every rental agreement, rental insurance guidelines, and more. A self managing landlord might not have standard practices and procedures. At first glance, a rental applicant might be happy to deal with a ‘relaxed’ landlord. But complications could arise if other tenants aren’t screened thoroughly, the landlord doesn’t fully understand the law, or maintenance is not being addressed.
