Owners Preparing for Construction – Vancouver building permits may take a year to obtain, forcing you to pay the Speculation and Vacancy tax if it’s unoccupied. As your primary tenant, we work with your schedule. If your timeline extends we can usually continue the agreement until construction begins. Enjoy the peace of mind knowing you have secured steady rental income stream while waiting for permits.
Investment Property – As your primary tenant we assume the cost and care of repairs, cosmetic updates, and furnishings, to create medium-to-long term accommodations. Our consistent presence on the property ensures it is monitored with high integrity. Enjoy hassle-free rent while saving thousands in Empty Homes Tax.
Each property is unique and will require different levels of attention. Typically, as your tenant we will assume the cost and take care of:
Restoration and Cosmetic Updates: We will provide the minor labour to get your space liveable and safe. Yes, that includes toilet repairs, leaky faucets, painting etc.
Cleaning Service: High attention to regular professional cleaning prolongs the life expectancy of appliances, furniture, and fixtures.
Routine Walkthroughs: With regular visits we build rapport with our tenants, , ensuring the home is being maintained.
Fixed Term Tenancy: Whether you’re on a renovation schedule or need the property back for your own personal needs, our agreement ensures the property is vacated when you need it.

Everything is built into the secured rental income we pay you. Our team will complete all the necessary repairs to create a safe and comfortable home.

At the signing of the lease, we become your primary tenant. After completing repairs, we secure qualified tenants to a fixed-term sub-lease coinciding with your timeline. The fixed-term sub-lease ensures property will be vacated exactly as agreed upon.
It is important that we sub-lease to qualified subtenants in need of a long term primary residence so you can avoid paying the Speculation Tax. We typically sublease to taxpaying Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada.
