The relationship between a landlord and a resident has some specific lines you do not want to risk crossing. For business security, and your sanity, maintaining an anonymous, professional relationship with your residents is a useful way to keep things running well. By having the Real Property Management Seacoast New Hampshire team on your side, we deal with the messy and often stressful problems, so you don’t have to.
As a landlord, forming relationships with your residents is easy. Appliances need fixing, and the property needs maintenance; you could be seeing a resident every month or so based on the situation. When you are constantly visiting someone renting your property, a friendship can form. Suddenly you realize your resident has your private phone number and maybe even knows where you live. This can be harmless until a resident becomes bitter over an issue regarding the property. The risk in this is having too close of a relationship with your tenant and not wanting to be the “bad guy” if something goes awry, when the resident 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
Your resident can also try and take advantage of you. In having a property manager, you avoid these issues completely. We handle everything from background checks to broken rules and overdue rent. We study local and federal laws, so you don’t have to, and we enforce 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 totally by being anonymous.
Avoid Conflict of Interest
Maybe being a landlord is not the only type of business you are in. Participating in politics, owning a restaurant, or any kind of public career can lead to conflict with residents trying to rent from you. If they recognize your name from somewhere, they may already have a preconceived notion of the kind of person you are. Whether it is good or misinterpreted, having a property management team backing you removes the risk entirely and protects your identity. Having that protection comes in handy when a resident 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 resident leaving a negative review of your business online because of an issue with a rental property. Why risk getting your reputation destroyed if you don’t have to?
