  • How is rent collection handled?

    Citysearch offers several means for a tenant to pay rent including e-transfers, post dated cheques, pre-authorized debit payments. Many of Citysearch’s corporate clients, the major employers will be invoiced collectively, and pay by direct wire deposit to the Citysearch trust bank account.
  • How long of a lease do you sign?

    This depends on the owner-client preference. However, most tenancies are for a period of one year or longer. The corporate relocation tenants most often wish to align the tenancy term with the duration of the tenant’s work visa which is often 3-4 years.
  • How much security deposit do you charge the tenant?

    Citysearch collects a security deposit which also is frequently referred to a damage deposit, equal to one month’s rent pursuant to the maximum amount allowable pursuant to the Residential Tenancies Act of Alberta.
  • How soon can you start managing my property?

    Citysearch can typically commence the management within 48 hours of our initial consultation once an agency agreement is in place and title is confirmed.
  • What types of properties do you manage?

    Citysearch manages condominiums, both apartment-style and townhouses, single family detached and duplex residential homes and apartment buildings.
  • What type of reports do I get and how often?

    Citysearch offers several types of financial reports and these are available on the Owner Portal. Most owners prefer a cash flow statement monthly and one reflecting year end.
  • Who holds the tenant’s security deposit?

    Citysearch holds all security deposits in a trust account on behalf of the tenant’s property pursuant to the Residential Tenancies Act of Alberta. The government of Alberta establishes the interest rate payable to the Tenant for the deposit monies.
  • Do you provide nonresident administration?

    Yes, Citysearch provides full nonresident administration including monthly withholdings and remittances to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) as set out by the Government of Canada.
  • Can I use your services if I already have an agent listing my home for sale?

    Citysearch Rental Network respects the Law of Agency and will work in alignment with your Realtor. If a Tenant is found before a Buyer is found, we recommend you simply have the property removed from the sales market. If your Realtor finds a Buyer before a Tenant is secured, then you simply send us a copy of your contract and you can terminate without paying the full contract termination penalty. We would be pleased to review the specifics.
  • Do you have a pet or smoking policy for properties that you manage?

    It is recommended that a property owner be ‘pet friendly’ where possible. By not accepting pets, you may be seriously limiting the rental audience for your property. Our pet policy is as follows:
    • Three pet limit per household
    • Must comply with condominium bylaws, if applicable
    • Rental applicants with household pets or service/companion/assistive animals are required to submit a pet application and execute Citysearch’s comprehensive Pet Maintenance Agreement.

  • How will you advertise my property?

    The vast majority of our tenant prospects are sourced via our vast corporate and global relocation networks. However, we also list the property and its features on our web site along with some online rental sites. We customize a marketing strategy for each property to best reach the target audience.
  • I would like to manage my property myself. can you help me find a tenant?

    Citysearch does not offer or promote a “tenant procurement only’ service. It is our experience that the caliber of tenants Citysearch attracts are ones that require a property that is professionally managed. Ask us why… there are many reasons.
  • Can we engage citysearch to manage my property, even if it is currently tenant occupied?

    Yes. We would be happy to discuss the next steps to facilitate managing your property.

About Okotoks

Okotoks is a town in the Province of Alberta, Canada. It is situated on the Sheep River, approximately 18 km south of the City of Calgary. The town is a member of the Calgary Regional Partnership, a cooperative of municipalities within the Calgary Region. Okotoks has emerged as a bedroom community of Calgary. Numerous old buildings have been restored, and one house was even resituated blocks away to avoid destruction by the widening of the highway through the townsite. Although the Sheep River runs through Okotoks year round, artesian wells near the river supply the town with its water.
