The unique relationship between landlords and their tenants can often showcase the fine lines you do not want to cross if you hope to separate your personal life from your professional business. If you wish to keep your business secure, maintain your landlord anonymity, and keep a professional relationship with your tenant then working with a property management team can ensure that these things run smoothly.
When you work with Real Property Management Utah County you are handing over the messy parts of Lehi property management and reaping the benefits of investing in real estate.
Working as a landlord, it is easy to form relationships with your tenants. You may interact with your tenants in several ways such as responding to repair calls, managing daily tasks, conducting tenant 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 tenants. From this, you may find yourself in a situation where you do not want 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 tenants, 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 needs 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 dismantled if you don’t have to?
There are no regrets in keeping your business anonymous and secure. To learn more about the services Real Property Management Utah County offers, contact us online or call us at 801-224-0033 today.
