SOPM will evaluate your property to ensure it can receive the maximum monthly rent amount. We will also advise you of any necessary renovations that will maximize your return on investment.
Your property is listed on many digital platforms. Our social media following is extensive on both Facebook and Instagram. The rental property advertisement will be posted on those mediums and also other online platforms such as Kijiji and Craigslist.
Our website: southokanaganrentals.com, sees hundreds of site visitors everyday. Tenants, local and beyond, check to see what available rental properties have been updated on the website, daily.
Potential tenants are required to submit a Rental Unit Inquiry Form on this website, if they are interested in a rental property we manage. Our Administration team will then complete a phone interview with the potential tenant. If found suitable, the tenant is then allowed to view the property.
After property viewing a rental application is completed with the tenant(s). The application involves a credit check and references.
We keep you informed of pending applications, so you can be a part of the selection process.
SOPM uses LandlordBC’s extensive tenancy agreement. The agreement contains all standard terms necessary, as per The Residential Tenancy of Act of British Columbia and additional terms to protect your investment.
Conditional Move-In Inspection
SOPM’s move-in inspection process includes a detailed conditional inspection report, photos and a video of the property at tenant move-in. We also provide an in depth explanation of important clauses in the tenancy agreement and review our emergency procedures. The tenant(s) are also advised of the location of the water shut-off and electricial panel.
Inspections are carried out at regular intervals throughout the tenancy. The tenant is asked a series of questions regarding their tenancy and preventative maintenance. This checklist is then emailed to you, along with our comments.
SOPM stays informed on all Residential Tenancy Act changes and updates throughout the year. When the yearly rental increase amount is announced we will contact you with your options for increasing the rent at the property. There are timelines to follow to issue increases and we will ensure this is completed properly for you.
All payments to you, our landlord clients, are convenient and hassle-free. We ensure you receive them on a timely basis each month. Please contact us for further information.
Our accounting team has over 30 years of experience. We ensure all record keeping adheres to the British Columbia Financial Services Authority’s requirements. Landlords are provided with a detailed statement each month of rental income and disbursements. Landlords will also receive a yearly summary.
For Landlords’ convenience we also offer direct access to an owner’s portal where you can view all of your statements and documents at any time. Contact us today for a FREE consultation!
