Can I get a rental appraisal for my Sydney investment property?

Yes, a rental appraisal can be conducted by a property expert from our local team.

What is your approach to leasing and finding new tenants for my Sydney property?

Finding you a good tenant is probably the most important thing we do.

It starts with letting. Unlike traditional agencies, we list every property on and with professional photos, video walkthroughs, indicative floor plans and clear, well-written descriptions. By including the things that would-be tenants care about, we get more applications, more rapidly.

Once we have applications, we evaluate tenants thoroughly so we can stand behind our recommendations. Any tenant we place will have been checked across the major tenancy databases. We know bad tenants often provide old, or even forged written references, so we call references. We will verify income and employment tenure. Bad tenants may fudge these points - our legally compliant, structured interview process helps us identify those who are trying to pull the wool over our eyes.

After you select a tenant from our recommended, we make sure that the tenancy agreement reflects your concerns from pets on the premises to the length of the lease.

How do you deal with arrears or other tenant problems?

Good tenant selection stops most big problems before they occur, but all tenants will have concerns and questions.

We take care of problems before they become problems. Our systems automatically track arrears and tenants are contacted by phone, email and SMS. We follow up relentlessly to ensure you get paid. We work with you to create a proactive maintenance plan and deal with urgent maintenance requests immediately.

In the very rare cases where we cannot resolve the problem directly, we will attend tribunal proceedings. Meticulous record keeping is the key to a good outcome at tribunals. We’ve designed our service so that every transaction flows through our proprietary system. At tribunals, we always have a complete paper trail, so we can prove our compliance on your behalf.

Will it cost me anything if my existing tenants want to renew their lease?

No, there will be no fees if your existing tenant decides to renew.

Who will carry out inspections on my Sydney property?

Inspections are useful for landlords but a hassle for tenants. We have a team of Sydney home experts who will perform at least 2 per year (we will do more, but only when there is a need to). When inspecting, we don’t just walk through and take some photos. Instead, we actively compare the condition with the last report, using our proprietary inspection process.

How do you deal with maintenance requests and repairs for my Sydney property?

In taking care of your property, we have developed a network of trusted tradespeople. Every member of our Sydney-wide network is highly reviewed and complies with all licensing regulations. We don’t receive kickbacks (or “christmas hampers”) from our tradespeople. We just hire the right people.

Taking care of your property is more than just inspections and maintenance. From bills, to preventative maintenance, to tax reporting, there’s a ton of additional important work we do for you. All we need is your name, email and investment property address to get started. Or feel free to drop us an email at

How can I switch over my investment property in Sydney to :Different?

To switch over to :Different, all we need is your name, email and investment property address to get started.

We’ll follow up with you on any additional questions so that we can generate our managing agency agreement and confirm your ownership of the property.

We handle the entire transfer process. Once you sign our agreement, we do the rest. We notify your tenant, the previous property manager and any other relevant parties. We’ll also work with your previous agent to smoothly transition your file and hand over the keys.

If your previous agency agreement requires a notice period, we’ll give that notice on your behalf. This is typically only a 30 day period. We start managing your property once that notice period has ended.

We charge you nothing until we officially start managing your property.
