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