If you have any problems with your rent payments please notify your Property Manager at the earliest possible time. If you fall into arrears, we will be obligated to follow the procedures outlined in the Residential Tenancies Act to collect the rent on behalf of the landlord.
At First National Real Estate Latrobe we have a strict “zero tolerance” policy on rent arrears. Should a tenant fall into arrears they will receive numerous phone calls, text messages and letters until the fifteenth (15) day when a Notice to Vacate is served followed by an application made to the Residential Tenancies Tribunal for vacant possession of the property, together with all rent due plus costs.
Please remember our landlords have financial commitments to meet and they rely on rent being paid on time.
