“I spent $4,000.00 putting new kitchen cabinets in a rental, the tenants liked them so much when their lease was up they took them with them, I had my attorney write them a letter threatening to charge them with theft if they did not return them, two days later my attorney found them thrown through his office window. He had them arrested then sent me the invoice $90.00 for the letter he wrote and an additional $1,600.00 for the windows, I hired another attorney to dispute the $1,600.00 invoice for the broken windows that I was being billed for my first attorney became enraged by this and shot out my truck window, He went to jail also now my ex-tenants and my ex-attorney are on probation with attorney fees and replacement cabinets the whole deal cost me $12,000.00 more than I will make off of the house in two years.”
We can make sure you don’t have this problem, we will stop the ripple effect and make sure all the money is going into your pocket!
Its Thursday Thoughts about Property Management!
Today our thought is about Tenant interface:
A property manager can also perform a task that many landlords would rather avoid — dealing directly with tenants. The manager can field all complaints, handle issues and maintenance calls, and collect rent. Since they are hired to interface so closely with the property and its occupants, they can easily identify any problems with late rent payment or lease violations so that appropriate action can be taken.
So avoid having to handle tenants and let us do it for you!
