Communications With The Tenant

Managing interactions with a renter in Bristow

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

Tenants in Bristow may ask to change lease provisions, or make other special requests. The property manager knows the lease and knows why the lease provisions are there. A renter can catch an uniformed landlord at a moment of weakness causing the landlord to give into a request that is counter to the owner's own interests.

The result of giving into what appears to be simple favor can be disastrous. Furthermore, once the renter believes there is an opportunity to appeal, the renter will appeal every question to the owner, which cost the rental investor time and effort.

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