So I own a house in a city where I no longer reside and have the property tenanted and managed by a company, seemingly your only option should you wish to retain the investment from a distance.
Even the best company of property managers are conniving bastards.
They charge you for automatic processes, send you your statements from bulk-copy, take sometimes months to get back to you, sneaky back-scratch with tradies, never carry out inspections as often as they promise and charge you for bullshit things with the impetus on you to refuse them post-automatic rent-extraction.
They do no significant work and get paid for it.
The whole property industry is corrupt and hideous.
This disillusionment post is brought to you by a lack of tea and money.
