Renter and Property Managers: 4 Tips for Harmonious Living

the letters H, O, M, and E hung from a clothespinRenting a home is often a step people take in their path of finding a home sweet home. Things like your job, finances, the economy, and the housing market may affect your decision to go straight into buying a home, instead of having you and your family opt for renting one. Rental homes are great because you don’t have to pass on having the space and luxury of a home just so you don’t have to make any commitments like you would buying a home. However, despite these perks, we’ve heard many a story about the fraught relationships between property managers and renters. These tips can help you maintain a harmonious relationship, regardless if you’re a renter or a property manager.

Tip #1: Keep Open Communication

When something happens to your rental home, whether you’re renting it or renting out, keeping open communication is always to go. If something bad happens, something needs to be fixed but there’s going to be a bit of a delay for whatever reason, or there’s some other important thing to touch base on, do it right away! If you’re too afraid to talk to your property manager and vice versa, more problems will arise than just the ones at hand.

Tip #2: Stay in Touch

That being said, stay in touch regardless, especially if you’re a property manager. Even if it’s just to check in to see how things are going, stay in touch even when there’s not an issue at hand.

Of course, it goes without saying that boundaries are important, so keep those in mind as well.

Tip #3: Abide By Your Contract

If you’re a property manager, it’s important to create a contract for all of your renters. A rental agreement or contract ensures that everything is put in writing so that both parties are liable for an issue that may violate said contract. As both the manager and the renter, be sure to abide by your contract to maintain the peace.

Tip #4: Ask, Ask, Ask

Even with a contract, ask before doing major stuff. Asking shows respect, which is something you want to maintain regardless of which party you’re in.
