We have to move states in January due to DH job. We've decided to rent out our property in QLD and are just trying to get our heads around how to start this process!
We picked 5 local agents to come out and give a rent appraisal and have a chat with us and from there decided on the best agent for us but now we are stumped. I know the next step is to sign a management agreement but reading through it all is totally bafflling to me and I feel completely out of my depth. I don't want to bother the agent with silly questions but is that who I should be bothering or am I just supposed to understand this whole process by reading through the agreement? Or do we just sign and then the agent tells us what to do when?
ie. When do I call to organise land lords insurance, being that we don't want to rent the property until January.
I know we need to organise a water compliant test but is that done before the signing of the agreement or later in the year?
Am I supposed to get a solicitor to read through the agreement before signing?
Thanks for any advice!
