Canberra Real Estate Agents
Wednesday, May 18, 2005
Bright Partners Real Estate in Manuka, Canberra basically force people to pay more rent because they have outsourced their payment options to a third party called Reconnect.
You see, I was mistakenly under the impression that a core business process for real estate agents is the collection of rent.
I was wrong.
The outsourcing of this function seems to cause a few problems including, but not limited to:
1. Increased rent amounts for tenants due to being forced into this payment method.
2. Inflexibility in terms of paying rent because now people have to visit the office every fortnight to pay via cheque.
I simply don’t understand how Bright Partners, Manuka can not:
a. Offer a direct debit system.
b. Process cash payments.
c. Offer to cover the administration fees of a system such as Reconnect, because you are the beneficiary of the service.
I don’t believe that tenants should be paying for the administration of collecting rent. Any additional costs supplied by third parties should be incurred by the businesses that do not have the capacity to fulfil demand.
