Communications With The Tenant

Handling interactions with a tenant in Page County

One of the primary services that any property management professional in Page County performs is providing a level of separation between the renter and the property owner. The best practice is for the rental investor to deny any direct contact with the renter. Important tip for landlords: avoid sharing your contact information with the renter.

Renters in Page County typically ask to bend rules, or ask for other special requests. The property manager knows the lease and knows why the lease provisions exist. A tenant can ambush an uniformed property owner at a moment of ignorance causing the owner to grant a request that is against the owner's own interests.

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

Renters will use contact with the rental investor to build a personal relationship with the property owner. 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 landlord at odd hours or with crazy requests.

 

We're paid to be your defend the owner's interests. It's harder to achieve that goal when the renter is going to ask the rental investor to overrule our work.
