Our team at Portola Property Management is talented and efficient, and they manage to stay calm during emergencies. Today, we have another post in our Stories from the Field series that we think you will find – um, interesting.
At Portola Property Management, our talented team of staff members work with owners, tenants, and bizarre situations every day. We spend a lot of time telling landlords who might work with us what we can do to manage your property better and provide an improved rental experience for all parties.
Properly maintaining a safe, habitable, and enjoyable rental home is a shared responsibility between tenants and their landlords. Property managers do a good job of facilitating the things that need to be done while maintaining a home. Today, we want to look at the items that fall into your tenant’s pool of responsibilities. When something needs to be fixed, how should you handle it if it’s your tenant’s responsibility?
Vacancies in a rental property are expensive and stressful. When your property is unoccupied, it means you aren’t earning any rental income. It also means your property is at risk for undetected maintenance issues because no one is in it to notice or take care of things.
When you’re advertising your property, showing it to prospects, and screening applications, you’re looking for a great tenant. The best tenants in your local market are looking for a home that’s managed by a professional management company.
We’ve never met a landlord who enjoys evicting a tenant. It’s an unpleasant process for everyone, but it’s also unavoidable on occasion. If you have a tenant who isn’t paying rent, you need to be prepared to evict. Today, we’re explaining the process.
Just wanted to check in, as we just got the deposit, which looks all fine and clear. So, we want to say goodbye and thank you guys for the friendly and professional service! It was a pleasure working with all of you and we want to wish you a great New Year ahead!
