    Default Property Management Advice Requested

    I have an investment property in Auckland and wish to obtain advice about property maintenance. The property is about 10 years old and I have HNZ as the current manager, who publishes an annual maintenance report. How should I proceed with regard to maintenance to ensure the following -

    1) The maintenance is actually required and is not an error by the assessor by HNZ.

    2) The maintenance is done in a workman-like manner at an agreed budget and on time.

    3) Obtain a budget for the maintenance work.

    Also, can anyone recommend a maintenance company (or a process) to asses the HNZ maintenance report, do a property inspection, give a quote and complete the maintenance works?

    Can you recommend a process to ensure I am not ripped off by anyone?

    Thank you

    Hi John,

    1. Can you request photos once done? Do a site visit to validate that it does need maintenance?
    2. As above
    3. Are you able to use your trades people?

    I would see if you could get more than one quote or run it passed someone else for a second opinion, often though without seeing the job and knowing what is involved its hard to know whether its a fair price or not...
