Private landlords may feel that real estate is just taking rent and keeping track in a notebook. This could be no further from the truth. There are many legal aspects that can literally take years to learn.
There is so much to real estate property management.
Private landlords must also comply with the same rules and legislation as a real estate agent.
In real estate, property managers aren’t the decision makers when it comes to terminating a lease, renewing a lease or even placing a tenant into a home. We act on behalf of the owners and their instructions. Professionals Avon Valley keep our clients up to date with where their tenant is at with rent, repairs and correspondence. It is then up to the owner to make the decision as to whether they wish to pursue something or ask our office to keep track of it until they wish to take further action.
Sometimes a great tenant can end up struggling, they may lose their job, there maybe a marriage/relationship separation – all of these factors can put pressure on the tenancy. We ensure we regularly check tenants rent and inform owners should we need to take any further steps.
We believe that it’s the way a property manager communicates with their owners, that ensures minimal loss occurs in an event of termination being required. It isn’t a property manager nor an owners fault if a tenant defaults but with the right landlord’s insurance in place it can definitely cover you for these events should you end up being in this situation.
