In These Challenging Times We Have Created A New Level Of Membership To Help BC Landlords Succeed
PROTECTION MEMBERSHIP Provides You With Tools & Services To Succeed For A ONE-TIME FEE
Landlords across the province know there are a lot of great renters out there. These are people who pay the rent on time and respect you and your rental property. They follow the rules and treat the rental like it’s their own home.
When you rent to these types of tenants being a landlord is a nice and often profitable experience. Being a BC landlord can be an exciting and profitable business.
Sure there are always stories of landlords facing problems in British Columbia. But long term veterans know that if you have a professional tenant screening system and a strong network to assist you if any problems with tenants arise being a landlord can be fulfilling business investment. However, these same experienced landlords know we face new challenges.
BC Landlords Face A Lot of New Challenges
New landlords already know that one of the biggest challenges is the price just to buy your investment property. We have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy a nice and attractive rental that good tenants are looking for.
With these types of prices we need to make sure we rent to tenants who pay on time and don’t make any damages. And while there are lots of great tenants out there, if you aren’t careful you ca get burned.
A Vancouver landlord was forced to set up a ‘Go Fund Me’ page after a tenant turned his rental condo into “brothel/ prostitute ring” and trashed his property.
BC landlords also face a lot of new rules such as the “vacancy tax” and more. What’s troubling is things that hard working landlords know are important for our success, such as allowing for fixed term leases, are being changed and it’s unfair.
We also have a new rent guideline formula. For years we were allowed to raise the rent on existing tenants by the rate of inflation, plus an extra 2%. So the rent increase guideline for 2019 was originally announce at 4.5%.
However, now the guideline has been changed and it’s only 2.5%. Experienced landlords know our costs are going up and 2.5% is too low.
The list goes on and on (including legal marijuana) with one common theme: more rights for bad tenants and less rights for good landlords.
It’s why BC landlords need to network and help each other like never before.
