Communications With The Tenant

Handling interactions with a renter in Huntly

One of the important services that a property management expert in Huntly performs is providing a level of separation between the renter and the landlord. The best practice is for the rental investor to deny any direct contact with the renter. Important advice for owners: avoid sharing your contact information with the renter.

Renters in Huntly may ask to break lease provisions, or ask for other special requests. The property management professional knows the lease and knows why the lease provisions exist. A tenant can catch an uniformed owner at a moment of weakness causing the owner to grant a request that is counter to the property owner's own interests.

The result of acceding to what appears to be simple favor can be a disaster in the long run. Furthermore, once the renter knows there is an opportunity to appeal, the tenant will appeal every question to the rental investor, which cost the landlord time and effort.

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