My friends and I own individual apartments in the same building/area in Chennai. Does Nimmadhi® Property Management offer any Group membership plans?
Nimmadhi® Property Management does not support Group memberships currently. We consider each apartment as a separate entity. We would be delighted if you and your friends would spend some time to enroll in our yearly membership plans. Nimmadhi® Property Management runs mostly on references. Clients who bring us business are eligible for yearly discount rates. So, encourage your friends, colleagues, relatives to enroll with Nimmadhi® Property Management.
How does Nimmadhi® Property Management take care of my rental property?
Keeping a house empty benefits nobody. Nimmadhi® Property Management helps to transform your empty house into a home by finding a suitable tenant to rent your house. Our field managers will inspect the house before showing it to prospective renters in order to note down if any important maintenance work must be carried out, say, the walls of the house needed a painting, they would suggest you to order for a painting work. Showing a neat and tidy house always gives a better impression to the renters.
Before renting your property, we handpick the tenants very carefully using our tenant filtering system called TRIM (Tenant’s Report In Management). TRIM is nothing but an application that stores a database of reviews from the house owners about their tenants. TRIM helps in determining if a tenant is ‘tenantworthy’ for your property. The report in general has the reviews from the past house owners about the tenant. Separate charges apply if you want to use this system of tenant filtration. Please e-mail us or call us at +91 (44)6531 8999 / +91 4279 1234 for more information on how TRIM system works. Watch out for updates on Mobile TRIM app, very soon by Nimmadhi® Property Management.
Nimmadhi® Property Management does not go unseen after renting the house to a suitable tenant. Once the rental agreements are made, the field managers give all the general information to the tenants, like, the nearest commute station, markets, malls, hospitals, restaurants etc. They also provide a pamphlet with the contact numbers of milk-wala, cable/dish TV technicians, LPG office, EB office, Nimmadhi® Property Management’s field manager’s number in case they are requesting for an urgent repair problem etc. Field managers also have a visit to your property once in every quarter to make sure if the tenant is maintaining your property in a good condition. If a tenant abides by the rental agreement, Nimmadhi® Property Management offers credits to their conduct. We thus not only assess the tenant for your well-being but also help the tenant to have a comfortable and safe stay during his lease period.
I can ask my relatives and friends in India to take care of my property. Why should I need a property management company to manage my property?
Well, good you asked us! The difference is ‘dedication in work’. Working FOR the customer is our business. That means we work ‘Full-time’ and ‘On-time’. YOU are our priority. Regardless of the differences in the time zone between India and in the country you live in, you’ll be able to contact us for any updates on your property, the maintenance work that is in progress, the new tenant confirmation status and all other details regarding your property.
How do you select a tenant for renting my house?
We keep a list of interested applicants for each rental property. Our field managers would then schedule a meet with each of the applicants individually to show the property. Our field managers will also request the applicants to bring a proof of identity (Driving license/Ration card/ Aadhar card/Voter’s ID/Office ID/PAN card) before showing the property to them. In the meeting, our property managers apart from showing the house would also assess the prospective tenant’s past tenantship behavior (TRIM – see point 23. for more details). Field managers would also note down the demands of the prospective tenant, such as requesting for a safety grill for the main door or balcony or if they want to negotiate the rent amount or advance amount. We will send a neat report of the meeting along with the tenant’s demands and TRIM report. On your approval, we will finalize a tenant.
How do you create a rental agreement? i.e. Who are involved in the rental agreement?
Rental agreement will be created on a stamp paper between the owner and the tenant with Nimmadhi® Property Management as the guardian to the owner’s property. Nimmadhi® Property Management will be responsible in executing the terms in the agreement. Rental agreement will be signed by the tenant and Nimmadhi® Property Management.
How do you deal with a troublesome tenant? Say, situations such as a tenant not paying rent for my house?
We list all such ‘tenant behavior clauses’ in the rental agreement. The tenant should read through the complete agreement before finalizing the deal. Our property managers get these agreements signed from both the tenants and the owners/property-guardian and also from a third-party witness in a stamped paper. If a tenant fails to adhere to the agreement, we take actions as mentioned in the rental agreement. Please find a sample rental agreement paper attached.
I own many apartments in Chennai. Can Nimmadhi® Property Management allocate one dedicated property manager to manage all my properties?
Sure we can. In order to get the benefits of Dedicated Property Managers, you must be a ‘Privileged’ Customer of Nimmadhi® Property Management.
What kind of maintenance work does Nimmadhi® Property Management carries out?
We accept maintenance works like white-washing, painting, plumbing, cleaning, minor renovation works like fixing grills for balconies/windows, minor fixtures in interiors etc. The maintenance work will be carried out by the workmen in our contacts. Please note that the charges for maintenance/renovation/repair works must be taken care by the owner/membership-holder.
How do you service your clients? Is it on a first-come, first-serve or on priority basis?
We serve all our customers on a first-come, first-serve basis.
How do you charge for the renovation/maintenance work of my apartment apart from purchasing membership with Nimmadhi®?
Once you contact us and discuss about the renovation/maintenance work that are to be carried out in your property, our field managers will have a visit to the property. They will have a look and contact the workmen (plumbers/carpenters/designers/painters etc.) They will have the workmen into the apartment and explain the requested work. The workmen then quotes for the work to be done. Our field managers do not accept the quote as is. They have experience in this industry and the market. So our field managers will negotiate with the workmen/vendor to get a final quote. Once they get the quotation and the schedule from the workmen, we will send it across for your approval. On your approval and payment, we will carry out the maintenance/renovation work. Not to mention, we take care that the maintenance projects are completed “on schedule”.
Does Nimmadhi® Property Management completely supervise the repair/renovation/maintenance work done in my apartment?
All the workmen (plumber/electrician/painters/carpenters etc.) in our connections are trustworthy. Nimmadhi® Property Management’s resources will supervise the renovation/maintenance work by regularly monitoring the work-area. We check if the workers are on schedule and the assignment is in steady progress. In case you have any other handyman/repairman whom you would like to use for your apartment’s renovation/maintenance works, tell us. Nimmadhi® Property Management would be glad to have them in our connections.
How do I pay for the renovation/maintenance work?
Payments must be made ‘before’ the maintenance work is carried out. Please refer point 15 for more details. Once you approve the quotation and the schedule, you can pay either by issuing a check or through online payment (paypal account/ debit card/ credit card)
How do I get to know if the repair/renovation/maintenance work of my apartment has been completed properly?
When you request for a renovation/maintenance work in your apartment, our field managers will carry out an inspection in your apartment. They will send you the videos/snaps of the work-area BEFORE the maintenance work is started. They will also send you the entire report with videos/snaps of the work-area AFTER the completion of the maintenance work.
We also maintain a CRS (Customer Report Sheet) for every maintenance work assigned to us. The report sheet has all details such as the number of workers involved, number of days worked, number of hours worked, daily/hourly wages, materials purchased for the assignment, amount spent for the assignment etc. We send a copy of this CRS to the owner through e-mail helping him to file the cost of the completed maintenance works.
How can the tenants contact you for maintenance works?
Before handing over the keys to the tenants, our field managers will make sure if all the fixtures in the apartment are in a good working condition. E.g. Air-conditions/electric supplies/bulbs and tube lights/checking for broken tiles/interiors such as a cupboard/water pipes. Thus it is unlikely that the tenants would experience any maintenance problem during his early stay period.
In case he finds any maintenance work to be taken care of, he can either e-mail us or call us to this number +91 (44) 6531 8999 / +91 4279 1234. If the maintenance issue seems to be trivial, say, tubelight/bulb fuse, the tenant himself can fix such issues. He then can intimate to Nimmadhi® Property Management about the changes made. In case the maintenance issues seem to require immediate attention, such as a water pipe leakage or water motor problems, they will be addressed by our vendors/plumbers/technicians at the earliest. However, if the maintenance works can be carried out only by the apartment’s association, then Nimmadhi® Property Management has no control over fixing the issues.
If you receive an unexpected maintenance work from a tenant (say, a broken water-pipe/ air-condition issues) how do you deal with it? Because issues like this must need immediate attention. Sending a quote and waiting for the approval and payment from the owner in order to start the work makes things late. How do you manage such urgent issues?
Such urgent and critical maintenance problems will be addressed as early as possible. Once the issue is resolved, we will send an invoice of the completed work to the owner. The owner should then make the payment online (through paypal account / credit card / debit card or by issuing a check in favor of Nimmadhi® Property Management).
In case he finds any maintenance work to be taken care of, he can either e-mail us or contact us to this number +91 (44) 2268 0255. If the maintenance issue seems to be trivial, the tenant is accountable to fix and bear the cost of fixing the issue. In case the maintenance issues seem to require immediate attention, such as a water pipe leakage or water motor problems, they will be addressed by the vendors/plumbers/technicians at the earliest.
Can I have a sneak-peek of any other apartment’s/property’s renovation/maintenance projects completed by Nimmadhi® before I opt for this service?
You are welcome! We welcome our potential customers to have a look on our completed projects. On your request, we will send you few pictures of the work completed.
I had to travel to the States before I had the interior-decoration completed in my apartment. Does Nimmadhi® Property Management carry out such assignments?

Based on your style and budget, we will be able to recommend a suitable interior-designer or carpenter who can carry out the interior-decoration for your apartment. Such assignments will be completely taken care of with regular monitoring of the work progress by our field manager’s team. We can arrange for Google hangouts with the designer team just in case you wanted to explain your design ideas better.
