Bolld Real Estate Management has adopted a new communication policy that requires all team members to respond to clients within a certain time period.
Our Response Time Policy
Due to the nature of the property manager’s job, the managers have designated times to answer the emails. After 3 pm our managers leave the office to meet clients, attend showings or to conduct inspections.

Rental insurance protects your property. Even though it is mandatory for all our tenants to purchase a tenant insurance, it is still necessary that you purchase your rental property insurance. Tenant insurance only protects your tenant’s belongings and tenant’s liability arising from the tenant’s doing. In other words to protect your self from any damage to your property or properties of others arising from anything else than tenant’s doing, you need a rental property insurance. Strata corporations are covered by strata corporation insurance, but deductibles are very high.
For your own protection we do require you to purchase a rental property insurance. To purchase your rental property insurance and to learn more about insurance please visit our site at: https://bolldpm.com/owner/rental-property-insurance/ .
Routine inspections are generally conducted every 3 to 4 months for each property under our management. The purpose of the inspection is to make sure that the tenant takes good care of your place and there are no deficiencies. During the inspections we make sure that the tenant occupies the place along with the occupants as the tenancy agreement. The tenants are required to inform us about any changes in the occupancy and report to us any occupants that are staying at your property for more than 3 weeks. We check whether there are no pets present that are not part of the tenancy agreement. We look for signs of possible use of your property as an AirBnB rental.
The tenant has an opportunity to point out any areas of your property that need maintenance.
After the inspection you will receive an inspection report.
Most of the insurance companies require regular inspections in order to fulfill any claims under the policy. Please check your policy to find out what are the requirements of your insurance policy.
We understand that the cost of owning a property goes up every year and the rental rate of your property needs to be up to date. As a landlord you are allowed to increase the rent once a every 12 months. The maximum increase allowed is set by the Residential Tenancy Branch every year. The tenant must be served a 3 months notice prior to the increase coming into effect.
By default we administer the rent increase every year at the earliest possible date. We constantly monitor the current market rental rates. In some circumstances where the rental rate is up to date considering the current rental market conditions at the time and there you have a good tenant in place who might leave if we do increase the rent, we talk to you to discuss the situation.
For more details about the rent increases please visit the government website at https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/housing-tenancy/residential-tenancies/during-a-tenancy/rent-increases
Effective December 11, 2017 the tenancy agreements can no longer include a vacate clause requiring the tenant to move out at the end of the term. This clause was allowing the landlord to require the tenant to move out at the end of the tenancy or sign a new lease. Under the new regulation all tenancies continue on month to month basis after the expiry of the term. This applies also to tenancies that were signed prior to the new regulation coming into effect.
