A word from the Principal…
Thank you for considering The Commercial Guys for your asset management needs.
Do you want to be a property investor or a landlord? 
On the surface they sound like the same thing however the work load and stress load of each is very different.   Believe me, because I am an Owner, an Investor AND an asset manager.
It is because I am an owner, like you, that I have be able to assess my knowledge as an asset manager, my desires as an owner and worked with our own lawyer to create some innovative, pragmatic and cost saving systems.  For instance, using an electronic signing platform and our own in-house lease forms allow us to get agreements completed much faster and cheaper than it would take to even instruct a solicitor normally.
Just like a share market investor that uses a broker or managed investment fund, a property investor also utilises a professional to manage and maximise the return on their investment.
We invite you to consider us for that role today.

FAQ’s – Frequently Asked Questions

How do Rent Reviews Work?

Typically, commercial leases have annual rent reviews built into them. The main 4 types of review are:
  1. CPI (Consumer Price Index),
  2. Fixed/Set i.e. 3%,
  3. Market Review
  4. New term rent review.
Skipping or forgetting reviews can have a negative impact on the value of your property.   Did you know if an option isn’t exercised on time, a new term rent review can be trigere? don’t be stuck with market or CPI if that doesn’t suit your investment strategy.  Call us to about how we use timing to your advantage.

What are Options?

Commercial leases often give the tenant the option of electing to stay for further term(s) after their initial term. i.e. The first term might be for 2 years and the lease might have provision for them to exercise their option for another period of time towards the end of the first term. Ask us about our own in-house Lease extension forms and how they might suit and save you time and money.

What if my tenant isn’t paying, can you help?

Yes, understanding this process is what stands us apart.
Firstly, there should be a fast-acting arrears follow up system in place. Secondly, we can and do issue valid Notices to Remedy Breach. Thirdly, we can and do lock out if you instruct us to.   Our role is to protect your investment.  We know how quickly arrears can add up to exceed the Bond held, exposing you to risk.   We work with your tenants to avoid this.  We don’t ignore the problem.  We keep you informed.

What all this electronic signing about, is it valid?

Yes, and we love it.  It saves you time and money.
We use the DocuSign platform, which works closely with Real Estate Institutes and Qld Law Society to provide a valid electronic signing solution for all documents.

Where does the Bond go?

Unlike residential properties, Bonds can simply be held by the Landlord. This can be in your own bank account; however, we find that most of the time owners elect to have it held in our Trust Account. This is all part of our property management service.
