Frequently asked questions regarding Management Rights can range from the frivolous to the bizarre, however if never asked, never answered.
Can I have a pet?
Refer to the By Laws of the particular scheme as some say NO, others say YES subject to certain conditions. The majority are subject to Body Corporate or Owners Corporation approval. The pet may have to be under a certain weight (eg. > 10kg) as well. Very few holiday buildings will approve a dog.
Do I have to man the office?
For the literal answer you need to refer to the Management and Letting Agreements. From experience, it is very important to man the office in a holiday building as this is when you will make significant bookings and receive other related income and grow your business.
Do I have to live on site?
To obtain a restricted letting licence you are required to live on site, however a nominee may be sufficient to meet the requirement of the agreements.

How much can I borrow and how do I arrange the loan?
Talk to a recognised industry finance broker or bank.

(The most frequently asked question)
How much will it cost and what multiplier will I pay?
The multiplier is the year’s net return x what a willing buyer will pay a willing seller. Simple supply and demand.
$100,000 nett profit
Say 4.0 x the nett profit
On the other scale: $800,000 nett profit x 5.5x the nett profit = $4,400,000 plus the associated real estate.
