The relationship between landlord and tenant draws out some fine lines you don’t want to risk crossing. For your business’ security, and your sanity, keeping an anonymous, professional relationship with your tenants is a practical way to keep things running smoothly. By having the Real Property Management Wasatch team on your side, we can handle the messy and usually stressful problems so that you don’t have to.
Working as a Sandy landlord, it is easy to form relationships with your tenants. You may interact with your tenants in a number of ways such as responding to repair calls, managing daily tasks, conducting tenants screening and even possible tenant evictions. This continual interaction could lead to a kinship, or a dissent, with your tenants over matters that are not directly related to your professional business. From these interactions, you may suddenly come to realize your tenant has your personal phone number and maybe even knows where you live.
This evidence can seem harmless, that is until there is a reason for your tenant to become bitter over a property issue. The risk in this is having too close of a relationship with your tenant and then as a result not wanting to be the “bad guy” if something goes wrong., or when the tenant is short on rent, etc. You end up in a situation you never wanted to be in just from being an attentive landlord.
How We Can Help
If you wish to have landlord anonymity with your tenant you can lessen the chances of these same tenants to take advantage of you. By having a property manager, you avoid these issues completely. We handle everything from background checks, to broken rules, to rent being past due.
We know the local and federal laws, ensuring that all decisions we make are legal and we enforce them with your tenants to make sure there is always a clear understanding of the relationship we have, which is strictly professional. This eliminates you from the conflict completely by being anonymous.
Avoid Conflict of Interest
Another reason you may want to consider looking to property management services for your investment rental property is if you are invested in multiple businesses. Being in politics, owning a restaurant, or any kind of public career can cause conflict with current or potential tenants. If they recognize your name from elsewhere then they may already have a preconceived notion of the type of person you are. Whether it is good, or misinterpreted, having a property management team behind you eliminates the risk entirely, and protects your identity.
Having that protection comes in handy when a tenant has to be evicted from a property and wants to take it out on the owner, especially if you run another business. You don’t want a tenant leaving a negative review of your business online because of an issue with a rental property. Why risk having your reputation tarnished if you don’t have to?
