Plumbing WOF

At apm we understand the benefit of preventative inspections and maintenance. A low-cost check done during normal business hours provides peace of mind and can save a very expensive after hours call-out. Grey Lynn Laser Plumbing has created an excellent offer which we thought was worth sharing with you. It’s an annual plumbing and gas check for your property and, if you would like to take up the offer for properties that we manage for you, just let your Property Manager know. You are of course welcome to take up the offer at home as well so feel free to call them directly.

Agreement to Lease VS Deed of Lease – do you know the difference?

One of the most common tasks a commercial property manager undertakes is reviewing Deeds of Lease when issues arise between tenants and landlords. Most of the time the lease is very clear but, in some cases, it is a matter of interpretation. An Agreement to Lease and Deed of Lease are two documents used in commercial property management but what is the right one for you? James Bangerter discusses the important differences between the two leases and the benefits of using a Deed of Lease.
