    At LPM, we have noticed that most ‘problem Tenants’ are a problem because they have been treated poorly, misunderstood or ignored. We put significant time, energy and effort into keeping all of our Residents happy, so we reduce expenses including legal fees and lost rent.

    The process of bringing on your property is quick and painless. We have a detailed checklist that can be completed within a couple of days and we do all the hard work for you. We work well with other management companies so there is never an issue with turning documents over.
  • With many Property Management companies in Kingston, why should I choose you?
    This is an important question. Clients should do their due diligence when selecting a Property Management company. Your checklist should include, meeting with the company at their office. Get a feel for their office and staff. How is their office building kept up? Do they have a professional office? What is their experience level? Have they been in the industry for 2 years or 20 years. How is there company broken up? Do they have supporting divisions to assist with your property? Ask for references. Do they strictly do Property Management or are they in multiple industries? Ask for a sample of their financial package. Lastly, make sure the company is asking the right questions too. You want to feel comfortable in speaking to the company and confident that your property will be kept up to your standards.

    Most of our properties we manage are in Kingston. We have other buildings in Gananoque, Amherstview and Nappanee. Depending on building characteristics, we will manage in Belleville and Brockville.
