Communications With The Tenant

Handling interactions with a tenant in Alexandria

One of the important duties that any property management expert in Alexandria performs is providing a level of separation between the renter and the owner. The best practice is for the rental investor to avoid any direct contact with the tenant. Important advice for rental investors: never share your contact information with the renter.

Renters in Alexandria often ask to change lease provisions, or make other special requests. The property management expert knows the rules and knows why the lease provisions are there. A renter can catch an uniformed rental investor at a moment of weakness causing the owner to give into a request that is against the rental investor's own interests.

The result of acceding to what appears to be simple favor can be a disaster in the long run. Furthermore, once the tenant believes there is a higher authority to appeal to, the tenant will appeal every question to the landlord, which cost the owner time and effort.

Renters will use contact with the rental investor to build a personal relationship with the owner. Personal feelings can make it much harder for the rental investor to make objective business decisions in a impersonal manner. Additionally, the renter can hound or harass a owner at unreasonable hours or with unreasonable requests.
