    PM to manage property in Frankston VIC - please recommend

    Definitely agree with NPB, be patient with tenant selection. Personally I can't recommend anyone in Frankston and I have used a number of them. I use Lil Skater and couldn't be happier. Her service has been fantastic from day.

    Agent letter - Annoyed!

    Smoke Detectors I would double check that the service of your smoke detector was in fact completed. I was charged for two tests in less than twelve months, probably six months apart. I found out later that the tenants were not at home for the second test and I still received the charge...

    Agree with what you are saying and I wouldn't have had a problem if the pm involved was prepared to discuss it. They started off being rude to a family member who answered the phone, then were intimidating and rude to myself. All the pm would say is that I have been doing this for x number...

    PM and missing rent money

    Thanks everyone for your advice. Have taken it all in board and in the process of changing pms. The missing money turned up in my bank account tonight. Not a word has been heard from the pm about this since last week, they did however send me an inspection report.
