Sarasota Landlords: Do You Really Want to Know Your Residents?

The relationship between a landlord and a resident has some specific lines you do not want to risk crossing. For the security of your business, and your sanity, maintaining an anonymous, professional relationship with your residents is a helpful way to keep things running well. By having the Real Property Management Sarasota & Manatee team on your side, we can handle the chaotic and often stressful problems you don’t really want to deal with. 

Maintain Distance

As a landlord, it’s easy to establish relationships with your residents. Appliances need fixing, and the property needs tending; you may be seeing a resident every month or so depending on the situation. When you constantly have to visit somebody renting your property, a friendship could potentially form. Suddenly you realize your resident has your private phone number and perhaps even knows where you live. Possessing that kind of information can be harmless until a resident becomes hostile over an issue with the property. The risk in this is having too close of a relationship with your tenant and then, in result, 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 a thoughtful landlord.

How We Can Help

Your resident can also try and take advantage of you. By having a property manager, you avoid these issues totally. We deal with everything from background checks to broken rules and late rent. We study local and federal laws so you don’t have to, and we enforce them with your residents to ensure that there is always a clear understanding of the relationship we have, which is strictly professional. This completely eliminates you from the conflict by being anonymous.

Avoid Conflict of Interest

Perhaps being a landlord is not the only type of business you have. Involvement in politics, restaurant ownership, or any kind of public career can cause 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 behind you eliminates the risk entirely and protects your identity. Having that protection is particularly handy when a resident needs to be evicted from a property and wants to take it out on the owner, especially if you have 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 dismantled if you don’t have to?
