Nelson and Richmond Landlords Looking for Property Managers

If you are new to rental property ownership or simply tired of getting the run-around from your renters, Champion Property Management can answer all your questions and concerns. Operating since 2011 we are the trusted experts in property management.

Our experienced team operate from offices in both Nelson and Richmond so we are never far from your property.

As experienced residential property managers we are more than happy to discuss management of your rental property without obligation and without the hard sell. Whether you are new to property management or an experienced investor, let’s have a chat about your options.

Worried about the risks of methamphetamine contamination to your property?

Methamphetamine contamination is a significant issue. The overall percentage risk of your property being contaminated is low but the cost to you if it is contaminated is significant to say the least. We pay for the first screening of your property when you hand it to us to manage so the risks are reduced for you as an owner – talk to us about what these risks are and how we can mitigate them for you.

Compliance and Legislative Changes

Changes to tenancy law and the impact of changes to other legislation such as Health and Safety have had significant impact on Landlords’, Tenants’ and Property Managers’ responsibilities. The potential costs in terms of fines for getting it wrong are now in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Recent changes include –

  • Changes to proof of contamination in the Tenancy Tribunal for methamphetamine contamination
  • Liability of owners and property managers for injuries occurring at a tenanted property
  • Changes to the law relating to tenant liability for damage to a rental property
  • Higher standards for insulation and smoke alarms in rental properties
  • Changes to the law relating to tenants abandoning rental properties
  • Changes to the law around the giving of notice to tenants to end tenancies and when it is perceived to be retaliatory notice by a Landlord
  • Wider powers for Tenancy Services to take Landlords to the Tenancy Tribunal for breaches of the Residential Tenancies Act 1986

With these sorts of changes and likely more to come, the management of rental properties is becoming increasingly complex and risky for the uninformed. You need a trusted expert to manage your property.
