I labor for a property management company, plus we manage a few small properties in the town that I live in, and overall, I love our job, but from time to time it can be a bit challenging.
Sometimes, you have tenants who refuse to understand that there is a wait time to get certain things fixed! Instead, they require you to repair their concerns as soon as they report them, however on afternoons enjoy that, I entirely have to remain as patient as possible so that I can keep our sanity.
Anyway, part of our job is to make sure that all the units go through an annual property inspection, prior to the inspection, I make sure that I provide the tenants usual notice that we will be entering the property. Some tenants enjoy to be present while in these inspections, which is fantastic with me, these inspections are beneficial to both the tenant as well as for us, so that we can identify any concerns that need to be fixed inside the rental property. I have a checklist that I hand to our repair crew, plus they are responsible for reporting back the concerns to me. Once I discuss the concerns with the owner plus get the orange light to move forward, I schedule all the repair for the properties. The process usually takes a couple of weeks to complete, but once done, most of the tenants are usually satisfied with all the upgrades. I am just glad that the landlords for the properties don’t hesitate to repair all the concerns that we identify.
