While Toronto has a reputation for being an expensive and merciless city for many renters, characterized by low vacancy rates and high demand, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to some of the highest vacancy rates in the decade.
With increasing vacancies, the power that was once exclusively held by landlords has been transferred to tenants, who are now demanding lower prices and more favourable lease conditions, creating an increasingly perplexing problem for property owners.
Royal York Property Management aims to solve the problem of the ever-changing market by levelling the playing field for both landlords and tenants.

Royal York Property Management also offers property owners a rental guarantee that other long-term property management firms do not offer. Royal York Property Management guarantees the property owner a rental income, even if they experience a defaulting tenant.

If a tenant defaults on their rent, Royal York Property Management maintains their rental income guarantee, pays for legal services to evict tenants, and replace the tenant for free.

With the market shifting in favour of the renters, tenants are now making demands to ensure their stay — such as a freshly painted unit or a “hands-on” landlord. Royal York Property Management can provide an unheard-of level of support, knowledge and control over their rental properties with their customizable software.

The software allows tenants to easily and securely fill out and upload forms and documents, upload photos and request work orders, and communicate with the landlord directly. It’s a delineated, straight-forward, and user-friendly interface that allows tenants to experience the benefits of a hands-on landlord while maintaining contactless communication during the COVID-19 pandemic.
