Communications With The Tenant

Managing interactions with a renter in White Post

One of the most important duties that any property manager in White Post performs is providing a level of separation between the renter and the landlord. The best practice is for the property owner to avoid any direct contact with the tenant. Important advice for property owners: avoid sharing your contact information with the tenant.

Renters in White Post typically ask to break lease provisions, or make other special requests. The property manager knows the lease and knows why the rules exist. A tenant can ambush an uniformed rental investor at a moment of weakness causing the property owner to grant a request that is against the property owner's own interests.

The result of acceding to a seemingly simple request can be a disaster in the long run. Furthermore, once the renter knows there is an opportunity to appeal, the tenant will take all matters to the landlord, which cost the rental investor time and effort.

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


We're paid to be your protect the landlord's interests. It's harder to do that job when the tenant is going to ask the rental investor to overrule our work.
