The relationship between you, as a landlord, and your residents draws out some fine lines you might not like to risk crossing. Believe it or not, keeping an anonymous professional relationship with your residents is often the best way to keep things running smoothly with your rental property business, if you want to keep it secure and your sanity intact.
With the Real Property Management Ventura County team working with you, we can deal with the oftentimes messy and stressful problems that might arise and you don’t want to deal alone.
As a landlord, it’s easy to form relationships with your residents. Appliances need fixing, the property needs tending, you could be seeing a resident every month or so depending on the situation. When you are constantly having to visit someone renting your property, a friendship could potentially form. Suddenly you realize your resident has your personal phone number and maybe even knows where you live.
Letting your residents have this information may seem harmless until an issue arises with the property and personal and professional ideals blend. You do not want to be seen as the “bad guy” which can lead to less-than-professional decisions being made.
How We Can Help
Your resident might also try and take advantage of you. In having a property manager, you completely avoid these issues. We deal with everything from background checks to broken rules and overdue rent. We study local and federal laws, so you don’t have to, and we implement them with your residents to ensure there is always a clear understanding of the relationship we have, which is strictly professional. This eliminates you from the conflict entirely by being anonymous.
Avoid Conflict of Interest
Owning a rental property and being a landlord may not be the only form of business you are engaging in. Whether you are a public figure, are engaged in politics, or own a small business there is a lot of value in keeping these aspects of your life separate from your rental property and its residents. Your residents may make preconceived notions of you and your property based on the misguided, or ill-informed information.
Having a property management teams not only protects your property but also your reputation. A disgruntled resident may leave a negative review for your small business when they were unhappy with something regarding their rental property. Why risk this damage when we can take care of it for you.
