Our Services

Following on from the Trident philosophy, we believe that good Property Management flows from good relationships, collaboration and delivering timely outcomes. We master basic property data through lease audits, management of critical lease dates and accurate tenancy schedules.

Operational excellence is achieved by the following:

  • Maintain up to date lease documentation.
  • Understanding and where necessary taking action on income and expense variance to budgets.
  • Managing rent arrears to minimise amounts outstanding.
  • Develop positive relationships with tenants.
  • Ensure that tenants are charged all amounts in accordance with the lease in a timely fashion, along with all supporting documentation.
  • Make early recommendations about lease expiries and work pro-actively with tenants on lease renewals.
  • Actively collaborate with leasing agents to lease any vacancies.

We will add value by understanding your goals for the property, the market and where your asset is positioned to identify risks and opportunities, so appropriate recommendations can be made.

The Trident retail team manages multiple retail shopping centres across south eastern and greater Queensland. Trident is highly regarded in this segment of the market with experience and rapport with clients which is second to none. Where most businesses say they have the knowledge and experience to deliver, Trident has a strong, demonstrated track record of success which is well recognised within the industry. Trident is always well prepared to assess the viability of Retail opportunities on their own merit. Trident ensure that both our Client and the Retailer are always receiving the best possible advice when it comes to making any in depth decisions relating to their appreciating assets.

With the extensive Retail and Legislative knowledge that Trident Retail provides to its clients, we will always continue to strive to be ahead of our competition and remain the Retail Agency market leaders, continuing to provide the most up to date service and information at all times. With this in mind, Trident understands that in Retail it is imperative to optimise rents not simply maximise them. This ensures that assets are reviewed in a holistic manner and not in tenant isolation thus creating optimal tenancy mix.

  • Review client specific requirements;
  • Review and report on market conditions;
  • Investigate proposed competing retail developments;
  • Source suitable potential operators from our retail pool;
  • Consider optimum tenancy mix and business types.

Our Retail team achieves this through complete integration of Property, Financial, Project and Facilities Management. By combining these functions and embracing the synergies and expertise of each specific skill set this leads to:

  • Repositioning an Asset;
  • Maximising Financial Performance;
  • Maintaining High Tenant Retention;
  • Adding Income Sources;
  • Detailed Financial Management and Reporting;
  • Comprehensive Risk Management & Sustainability;
  • Reducing Operating Costs.

In order for an Agent to act on an Owner’s behalf to be the manager of their property, they must sign a Management Agreement (Property Occupations Form 6). This agreement contains all details necessary for an Agent to represent the Owner, including special instructions and fees payable by the Owner. Without this agreement, an Agent is not permitted to advertise a property, sign a Tenancy Agreement, or manage a property on behalf of an Owner.

Outgoings typically consist of the costs of running the commercial site such as: council rates, insurance premiums, water/utilities bills, land tax, management fees, repair costs, scheduled maintenance, fire equipment servicing, cleaning, security and any non-capital expenditure. The outgoings are typically an estimate of the next year’s utility bills and fees, based on the actual costs of the previous year.

On a standard 3 year lease no survey plan or registrations costs apply, unless specifically requested by the tenant.

For a 5 year lease with a 5 year option, the lease must be registered on the title deed. If a survey plan is not already available the cost of the survey plan and/or registration costs are the tenant’s responsibility.
