Mackay Rentals specialise in property management. This means we understand property management as only a specialist can and offer the best possible service to our clients at all times. As a tenant you can be assured that you will have:
Consistent contact point, you only deal with the Property Manager or Assistant as detailed in your sign-up pack. Need urgent repairs? Picture hooks on walls? Query about your rent payments? All these things and more can be answered by your Property Manager and their Assistant, no need to leave a message in the office and hope that 'someone' will get back to you. Regardless of your inquiry you will deal with a familiar face who knows you and the property.
Urgent repairs can be arranged via phone with the Property Manager's Assistant, all other maintenance/repairs or fixtures can be reported by filling in a Maintenance Request Form which can be emailed directly from this site, faxed, posted or dropped into the office. We endeavour to have repairs carried out as soon as possible of receiving the request or 7 days for fixture requests eg picture hooks to be added to the property as this can depend on contact with the owner.
