Communications With The Tenant

Managing interactions with a renter in Clifton

One of the important services that your property management expert in Clifton performs is providing a level of separation between the renter and the owner. The best practice is for the landlord to deny any direct contact with the tenant. Important tip for landlords: never share your contact information with the tenant.

Tenants in Clifton will often ask to bend lease provisions, or ask for other special requests. The property manager knows the rules and knows why the rules are there in the first place. A tenant can ambush an uniformed owner at a moment of ignorance causing the rental investor to grant a request that is counter to the landlord's own interests.

The result of giving into a seemingly simple request can be a disaster in the long run. Furthermore, once the tenant knows there is an opportunity to appeal, the renter will appeal every question to the rental investor, 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 rental investor to make objective business decisions in a impersonal manner. Additionally, the tenant can hound or harass a owner at unreasonable hours or with crazy requests.
