There is a lot of confusion with investors with what they have to do with the new residential tenancy laws that came into effect in march this year, in regards to making sure their properties are compliant to be occupied. So many investors are getting out of the residential rental market because it's all too much to take on board. Today we are going to give you an easy guide of what you need to do to make sure your investment properties are compliant and how to keep on top of your rental obligations.

Today we have two amazing trades, keen to educate and help our listeners who are investors, or looking to buy an investment property, understand the new residential tenancy laws. First up, Andrew Butler- Managing Director of Butler Plumbing- A family owned maintenance plumbing company which is about to celebrate 35 years in the business, as well as the passionate, charismatic, talented and all-round good guy, Director of McCartney Electrical Solutions, Jonno McCartney, who runs a team of highly skilled and quality driven staff who are dedicated to providing top notch service to the aged care, NDIS, real estate and construction industries.

1. What's considered an urgent repair when it comes to the new laws?

2. Why are we doing these checks? Who benefits?

3. Now there are some things that need to be checked frequently, I'll run down a list, and you can tell me if they are required by law to be checked and how often?

   a. Smoke detectors?

   b. Gas heaters including ducted heating systems?

   c. Kitchen appliances - oven, stove, cooktop, dishwasher?

   d. Switchboard?

   e. Hot water service?

   f. Air conditioners and evaporative cooling systems?

4. Now guys, what happens after you've done all the checking, where does the paper trail go?

5. If the property is changing hands with a new tenant, does the new tenant receive copies of the compliance checks, or at least given the dates of when they were last checked?

6. As it's something that is easily forgotten, who is responsible for scheduling the next check? The plumber/electrician, or the property manager?

    a. Do you have a scheduling service to book the service check well ahead, like 2-5 years?

7. Is there anything else investors or even tenants should know about these compliance checks?

 

OFFERS:

Andrew Butler is offering 10% discount on the normal rate for safety checks until end of November. Contact Andrew from Butler Plumbing on 0418 549 093 or by email: service@butlerplumbing.com.au

Breaking a lease comes with its own complications and challenges, yet there are ways you can do it without having to pay out the term of your lease. Today we are going to talk about what you need to know when breaking a lease.

Sophie Lyon from Jellis Craig Boroondara is the best in the business when it comes to property management in Victoria. A director of the REIV, a trainer in the Residential Tenancies Act and all round great person.

1. What is actually 'breaking a lease?'

2. Can both a tenant and a landlord break a lease? How?

3. If a tenant wants to break a lease, what do they need to consider in regards to:

    a. Extra costs?

    b. Time?

4. If a landlord or rental provider, as they are called now, wants to break a lease, what is the tenant entitled to?

5. How much notice do you have to give if you want to break a lease?

6. Does the tenant, who broke the lease, need to continue paying rent if the property is vacant after they leave?

7. Sarah from Frankston wants to know if any extra costs can come from the bond, or does the rental provider need to give the tenant a break down of costs that need to be paid prior to vacating?

8. Do most lease breaks end up at VCAT?

9. Anything else that would be important to those thinking about breaking a lease?

Buyers are currently looking for two types of properties - something brand new or newly renovated, something that's untouched with character or quirkiness, or a possible land site with the potential to create something 'new.' So what does that tell you? The big bucks come when you present your home with a sense of 'newness.' Today we are going to talk about why getting the trades in to renovate will pay off on auction day.

Dean Davis and his wife Michelle are the Founders of M+Co Property and Dean is  here today to talk to us about 'Why Getting the Trades In to Renovate Pays Off on Auction Day.'

1. In our intro, we talked about how buyers are looking for something either new, newly renovated or something they can make 'new.' What are you finding as an acceptable value of 'new' in terms of how old a renovation is before it's time to give it a spruce for sale?

2. At the start of the year, I saw you at a 5 bedroom home where you had done a $180,000 renovation on it to give it a 'new look' from the kitchen, to bathrooms, to paint, floors and finishes. They got an amazing price? Can you tell us more about that property?

3. At what point do you say, we will fix it up for sale with touch up paint, fix the grouting, new carpets, maybe new tap ware etc, just where it's needed or do you go, let's give it the whole renovation where you might change walls to create new rooms, put in a new kitchen and bathroom etc

4. Where do home owners see the biggest dollar for dollars increase when they renovate their homes?

5. What should we do with the outside of a home if fully renovating the inside?

6. Should we bother putting in new heating, cooling and other add-on features, or are we just appealing for the renovated look?

7. Say I have a 4 bedroom home, how long should we anticipate it would take to renovate the entire home through M+Co Property?

8. Is there anything else home-owners looking to sell should think about?

Now, the property owner needs to cough up the funds when they sign the Exclusive Sales Authority. Today we are going to find out how you can pay for your advertising and styling when you don't have the cash in the bank.

Buyers have been coming out in droves for the last 12 months, eager to secure a property that is more suitable to Covid needs. They are cashed up as they haven't been spending money on overseas travel, and they are prepared to pay the big bucks for something that ticks all their boxes. Today, we are going to give you a helping hand, and explain what the top ten things buyers are looking for in a home, and how you can overcome it if you don't have it. 

David Banks, from Jellis Craig Boroondara, has had over 10 years experience in real estate sales and has seen a dramatic shift in buyer requirements over the last 12 months. He is here today on Real Estate Right to guide you on how to present your home best to attract the best buyers.

So today we are going to go through the Top 10 of requirements of buyers and how to overcome them when you don't have them. 

10. A view or something to look out beyond the four walls.

9. A garage.

8. Being within 5 kilometres of everything you need.

7. Storage.

6. A second study area for when both of you are working from home.

    a. What are buyers prepared to compromise on? ie, what's their dream and what are they prepared to take on as reality?

    b. How we live and how we sell are often two very different things. How can buyers look beyond the staging and styling of a home to work out the function that is best suited to their lifestyle?

5. Separate living spaces.

4. Outdoor space.

3. Recently renovated (within the last 1-5 years)

2. A study to work from home.

The Section 32 or Vendor Statement that is part of the Sale of Land Act required to sell a property in the state of Victoria. It's kind of important if you want to sell your home or investment. Today, we are going to talk about how you can help your legal team get your Section 32 in order so you can sell your property. 

Kiani Mills, Director and Founder of KLM Conveyancing, is not only a fabulous conveyancer, but also a brilliant business woman opening offices all around Australia to help buyers and sellers on the move. She's here to give us her fabulous insight in to the Section 32.

1. For all that don't know, what is a Section 32?

   a. Is it different to a 'Contract of Sale?'

2. How helpful do you want vendors to be in providing the information for the Section 32, and how much easier is it for you doing it through your own connections?

3. When do you need extra input from your vendor?

    a. What's classified as illegal building works, and how much do you need to tell your conveyancer?

    b. Do people actually realise that they have done any illegal building works?

4. Is it helpful for vendors to have council rates, water rates, land tax and owner's corporation fees fully paid going into the sale, or doesn't it matter due to readjustments at settlement?

5. In what sort of incidents would you need to get a property lawyer to step in to help prepare the section 32?

6. Say my agent has a hot buyer who wants to purchase a property in the next 24 hours and will only look at properties where all the paperwork is in order. How quickly can you get a Section 32 prepared?
