There are two main fees payable to Property Managers in Perth. These are: a letting fee and a management fee. The letting fee applies to sourcing a new tenant at the beginning of the lease. In Perth and Western Australia, the cost generally equates to 2-3 weeks rent.

The management fee is more substantial and is usually a percentage of the weekly rent, payable for the day-to-day management of the lease. The average in Perth is normally between 8.5% and 11% though you can expect to pay more if leasing a property in regional or rural areas.
