Communications With The Tenant

Handling interactions with a renter in Page County

One of the important duties that your property manager in Page County performs is providing a level of separation between the renter and the rental investor. The best practice is for the landlord to avoid any direct contact with the renter. Important tip for owners: avoid sharing your contact information with the tenant.

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

The consequence of acceding to what appears to be simple favor can be a disaster in the long run. Furthermore, once the renter believes there is a higher authority to appeal to, the renter will take all matters to the property owner, which cost the rental investor time and effort.

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