Leases are inherent ingredients for successful relationships between landlords and tenants, as they map out rules, boundaries, and responsibilities. Without a cohesive lease, neither tenants nor landlords would understand their rights and accountabilities. Real estate property management professionals often act as counselors to their clients when it comes to formulating the perfect lease and will recommend terms, create the lease, present it to tenants, and finally, oversee the behavior of renters. Many landlords go through the trouble of writing up a lease only to allow many of its terms slide. With managers, the lease and its specifications are law, and you can feel comfortable knowing your property is in trustworthy hands.
Within Legal Guidelines
Real estate property management will help you create a lease that complies with landlord and tenant laws. For example, a manager might suggest you add a limit as to how many tenants may reside within a single unit, identify parking preferences, or prohibit ownership of pets. On the flip side, managers will also make sure your terms fit landlord guidelines for the benefit of you and your tenants. They will help you avoid making illegal demands, such as giving yourself the right to change a tenant’s lock without notice if they missed their payment or denying renters the right to take you to court.
After the lease has been written and renters have been informed of the terms, property managers will act as your eyes and ears. If they notice terms are being broken, such as four individuals frequenting a unit where there should only be three or a cat sitting in a tenant’s window, they will address the situation. As the owner, you will not be faced with the responsibility of resolving the situation and can rely on your property manager to take care of it for you. They will deliver a violation notice, making sure the tenant understands their infraction and what they can do to avoid eviction.
