Communications With The Tenant

Handling interactions with a tenant in Arlington Ridge

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

Tenants in Arlington Ridge may ask to bend lease provisions, or ask for other special requests. The property management professional knows the rules and knows why the lease provisions are there. A renter can ambush an uniformed rental investor at a moment of ignorance causing the rental investor to grant a request that is counter to the property owner's own interests.

The consequence of giving into what appears to be simple request can be a disaster in the long run. Furthermore, once the renter believes there is an opportunity to appeal, the renter will appeal all matters to the property owner, which cost the landlord time and effort.

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


We're paid to be your protect the owner's interests. It's more difficult to do that job when the renter is going to ask the rental investor to second-guess our work.
