Owner FAQ’s

How do you advertise your properties?

We advertise on a number of different syndications including but not limited to Zumper, PadMapper, FaceBook Marketplace and RentBoard as well as our website.

How are rent payments collected and how do I get paid?

Rent payments are made by your tenants through their banking institution (either online or in person). The property management fee and any other completed repairs are deducted from the rent and the net income is sent directly to your bank account on the 8th of the month.

Should I allow pets?

Over half of all renters have pets. Being open to pets will increase demand and even increase the rental price per month. If you would rather not, it is OK to list your property and stipulate that pets are prohibited.

 

How do you determine the rent amounts for my property?

Like most companies, we look at comparables for similar properties in the area. But because we are a local company, our solid base knowledge of the Greater Toronto area also plays a vital role. We strive to achieve the highest market rent for your property while eliminating down time of vacant units with our fast and proven turnover process and marketing tools.

How do you handle repairs and maintenance?

Tenants report repairs and maintenance items via their online portal. We then prioritize and complete all work orders in a timely manner, keeping our tenants and property owners informed along the way. At Hanlyn we work hard to not only react to repair and maintenance concerns in a timely manner, but to proactively inspect the properties under our management, in an effort to catch repair and maintenance issues before they become a larger issue.

Who do you send in to complete repairs on my property?

Depending on the nature of the repair, Hanlyn will either send one of our in-house field technicians, or outsource the repair to one of our trusted sub-contractors. At Hanlyn Property Management, we have spent years nurturing relationships with our third party vendors; culminating in partnerships that ensure we are suited to carry out even the most involved projects with confidence. 

What is your tenant screening process?

Our online application is thorough, asking all of the pertinent questions to screen tenants. We require current and past employment information, current and past landlord information, a credit report and proof of employment in the form of employment letter or paystub. We verify all employment and rental history and then package it up for our property owners final approval.

Why should I hire a property manager?

Utilizing the right property management company will make you more money, not less. Our experience will ensure that you enjoy optimal returns on your investment property.

Do you handle evictions?

We do handle evictions from start to finish. We will gather all of the evidence necessary, serve all of the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) forms and file LTB applications to obtain a hearing. Once at the hearing, we work with one of the finest paralegals in the province to ensure the outcome is positive.
