How do you approach tenant screening?
We believe that the quality of tenants that are occupying your investment properties is of the utmost importance. When a unit is vacant, we do everything in our power to find a qualified, low risk resident for your unit. We screen tenants using the following process: gather and verify rental history and employment history, call references, and appoint a guarantor if necessary. After meeting the tenant in person and conducting our screening procedure, we only submit applications that we are confident are the right fit for your unit.
What responsibilities will I have as an owner with Onpoint managing my properties?
The only tasks you will have to take care of is paying your mortgage, property taxes, and insurance. Everything else is handled by Onpoint.
What happens when something needs repair on my unit?
Onpoint is the point of contact for any need that the tenant has. If they need something repaired, we will get in touch with our vendor contacts and get the repair made as soon as possible. Usually, for any repair under $100 we will have the work done without bothering the property owner. However, if you’d like to be informed with any work that is required on your property, or if you’d like to make the repair yourself, that can be arranged as well.
If my unit is vacant, how will it be advertised?
We utilize multiple marketing platforms when trying to fill a vacant unit, including: the Onpoint website and Facebook Page, Pembina Valley Online, Kijiji, Varage Sale, as well as local newspapers. In addition, tenants and potential tenants recognize Onpoint as a reliable resource when they’re are searching for a new home. We receive many incoming requests for vacant properties making our industry contacts one of our most valuable marketing platforms. All advertising costs are paid by Onpoint Property Management.
Do I get to choose how much rent to charge for my unit?
Yes, it is 100% up to the property owner how much rent to charge. That said, we will provide advice on the current rental market conditions in the area.
How are the property management fees calculated?
Onpoint charges a percentage of the rent that is being paid for each unit we manage. We offer discounted services for managing multiple properties. Email, text, or call Helen Wall for details on our competitive rates. firstname.lastname@example.org or 204-325-5248
What information will I receive every month regarding my property?
Onpoint will send out a detailed statement for each property clearly showing rent collected, any repairs that were made, and our management fees. Additionally, you’ll be kept in the loop with anything happening with your property as it happens. Whether it be tenants giving notice, showings on a vacant unit, or anything else; you’ll be in the know.
How does Onpoint being bonded affect me?
Being a bonded property management company means that we operate under strict guidelines set out by the Manitoba Securities Commission. All of our accounts are required to be audited by a CGA to ensure every penny is accounted for as enforced by the Securities Commission. After rent is paid by the tenant, it is deposited into our trust account and paid out to the property owner as soon as possible.
