    Hi all,

    I am trying to find a good property manager in Sydney who is both affordable and reliable.

    The property to be managed is a relatively small apartment approx 42 sq m in size. I want to keep my investment as "hands free" as possible, and would expect the tenant to interface directly with the property manager without involving me.

    I have looked at Oaks Property Management and they seem ok. They charge approx 5.5% standard management fee on weekly rent, plus ad-hoc letting fees among other fees.

    Given that the property is a small apartment, management should be comparatively simple. My main criteria is affordability. A fixed percentage fee on weekly rental would be best.

    If you have any suggestions of good property managers in Sydney leave me a note and I will look into it. If you have some basic numbers of fees too that would be great.

    Cheers
    Ajay

    Firstly, which part of Sydney? Is it for short term or long term accommodation? Small properties do have a greater turnover of tenant.

    The fairtrading website lists a number of Oak companies – the one you mention is not listed. You may need to check their licence. http://www.propertyservicesregister.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/olc/psr/Search.do
