How to Maintain a Good Relationship with Your Tenants

How to Maintain a Good Relationship with Your Tenants

As a landlord, you’ve probably had a few tenants who have been amazing and a few who have been less than stellar. Regardless of the quality of the tenant, it’s important to do your part in maintaining a positive relationship with them. So what are some things you can do to promote a positive relationship with your tenants?

Maintain a Good Relationship with Your Tenants: Be Upfront

Get yourself off to a good start at the beginning of your relationship with your tenants by being upfront with them. You can get this started even before a lease is signed by including pertinent information in your listing. Tenants should be aware of the lease terms and expectations, as well as any fees they might possibly incur. These are some of the things you should include in the rental agreement. They should be clearly communicated in a way that is easy to understand, and it might be wise to give the tenant a copy of the agreement for them to reference.

Fix Issues When They Arise

Just like all dwellings, rental properties are subject to wear and tear, and will eventually need maintenance and repairs. Fixing repair issues promptly is an important part of building a good relationship with your tenants. It’s also a critical part of your responsibility as a landlord to provide your tenants with a safe and clean place to live. Make sure you give your tenants a reliable way to contact you in the event of repairs being needed. Tenants can be held liable for damage that they fail to notify you about.

Maintain a Good Relationship with Your Tenants: Respect Their Privacy

Everyone wants to feel safe and secure in their living space, and proving a reasonable expectation of privacy to your tenants is an important part of that. It may also be a legal obligation—only 13 states don’t have laws governing a landlord’s allowance to enter the premises. Even if you live in one of those states, it’s best to give your tenants a heads up before you just show up. It’s also best to avoid showing up outside normal business hours when possible. This will help your tenants feel that you respect their privacy and are considerate of their time.

A harmonious relationship between landlord and tenants is beneficial to all involved. It’s especially important as a landlord that you do your part to foster that sort of relationship. Being upfront about your expectations, fixing problems in a timely manner and respecting their privacy is a good place to start. After all, you can only control your behavior, so do what you can to make sure it’s exemplary.
