Smoke Alarms

January 1st 2022 is fast approaching, if you have not had the smoke alarms in your property upgraded to the NEW SMOKE ALARM LEGISLATION, please contact Angela on 47253300 to arrange to have this done as a matter of urgency. If you need any information on the new legislation, please call Angela or refer to the QFES website for details.

Change to MGA Landlords Insurance

On October 18th we were informed that the underwriters for MGA Insurance were no longer covering Townsville and districts for Landlords Insurance for a reasonable price. We thank the owners that have taken out other Insurance and informed us of the changes. This insurance is one of the most important insurances a landlord can invest in. It covers the landlord for Loss of Rent if the tenant vacates the property and fails to pay rent. Our owners that have had to lodge a claim for this Insurance can testify that it is well worth it.

Storage Units For Rent

If you are looking to free up some room at home, or a secure storage unit to file away your office paperwork, why not rent a storage unit. We have 5 convenient locations to choose from and sizes from 1 metre square to 90 square metres Rental prices start at $40.00 per month.

Rental Property Shortages

Once again, we have a shortage of quality rental properties. If you have a property that you would like appraised, please do not hesitate to contact us. The prices have increased and we are attracting a large number of tenants looking for properties. Contact John, Karen or Angela on 4725 3300.
