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 property in good and safe condition;
- Permit us to follow 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 maintenance. Whenever we can we will do this from collected rents rather than collecting from you.
