What property owners say

As a landlord, I'm putting a lot of trust — and money — in the hands of my property manager. The fact he's a member of the RPMA provides a tangible layer of assurance. I know that adherence to a code of ethics is a condition of membership, as is a clean criminal history. And, should anything ever go wrong, RPMA members are also required to hold professional indemnity insurance. It sounds basic, but these are not "givens" within the property management industry. That's why I will only work with RPMA members. I'm running a business, not a lottery.

I also value that members are right up to speed with all relevant legislation and regulations — and my property manager makes sure I'm across these changes, too. I usually am, but his comms give me peace of mind that I'm not missing a beat."
