Your property manager does most of the work.
Although we'll do the hard work, as the rental investor, you must:
- Allow us to keep your rental property in good and safe condition;
- Allow us to obey building codes and housing regulations affecting fair housing, health and safety;
- Allow us to keep your contingency reserve funds and escrow account in proper order.
Item 3, means that we may need to replenish your contingency account from time to time to pay for repairs. Whenever we can we will do this from collected rents rather than collecting from you.
