Empty Homes Tax

The Empty Homes Tax affects all property owners who do not occupy their properties with tenants for a minimum of 6 months a year. Our Vancouver property management team can help you place high-quality tenants to ensure your property is continually occupied and you avoid getting penalized by this tax.

Renting out your property in Vancouver is the best way to maximize profit from your investment. However, managing your property is an undertaking in itself.

Don’t underestimate the work involved in renting a property — and the risks of getting it wrong. Our Vancouver property management team know that vetting potential tenants, getting the legal paperwork right, managing insurance and dealing with strata councils are just part of a complex and challenging process that can be daunting if attempted by those with little experience.

Contact our Vancouver property management office, to discuss our range of property management services and how we can find the perfect match for your investment property.

[Bruce Ward] has given us sound advice in many areas. He helped us set a reasonable rent; he advised us on appropriate repairs and arranged to have them made at a fair price; he handled all the legal steps to ensure back rent was paid. In short, he has handled all the headaches of owning rental property. To put it in a few words, we recommend Bruce Ward Realty without reservation to anyone seeking a property manager for their Vancouver suite.

Bruce's team found us a professional (on budget and on time) renovator, and managed the renovations very well... [and] also does a great job at managing the relationship with the condominium association and the building manager. We fully recommend Bruce Ward Realty as manager for your apartment property investment in Vancouver. We have found Bruce and his team to be professional, responsive and a delight to work with.

[Bruce Ward Realty] are always helpful with any request I have/need as a non-resident and often, the only communication we have are the rental statements via mail. It is always a pleasure to talk with Bruce, Paul, Lynn and the rest of the BWR team. I have no hesitation in recommending their services and knowledge of the downtown real estate and rental markets.
