According to leading real estate and property management firm, ACL Real Estate and Property Management, choosing the right property management company in East Bay and the Peninsula region can ease the process of being a landlord. The key, the company says, is ensuring that the property management services provider offers the whole range of services. While most property managers are keen to screen tenants and negotiate deals, many are uncomfortable with performing the more difficult jobs.
When choosing the right East Bay property management firm, it is important to not only check whether they have a good track record but also whether they are up-to-date on the latest news and developments in the property and rental markets, says ACL Real Estate and Property Management. This is crucial for ensuring that both landlords and tenants get a good deal, in compliance with the most recent rules and regulations about tenancy. Reading reviews and customer feedback is a good way of determining the type of services offered by a specific company, the company adds.
More importantly, ACL Real Estate and Property Management believes that there are certain tasks that can be uncomfortable for a landlord and which should be performed with professionalism by the property management company. For instance, rejecting an application might not be an easy task but it should be done face-to-face. Checking on credit reports, past history of evictions or insufficient income are good indicators of whether a candidate should be rejected.
Another difficult task is evicting a tenant, states ACL Real Estate and Property Management. This is something that needs experience and a professional approach, both of which a good property manager should have. Dealing with a tenant who might be involved in criminal activity and checking for lease violations are responsibilities that property managers should offer. Providing warning notices and following up on whether the problem has been resolved should be done by the property management firm. The same holds true for late rent payments.
Another job which is never pleasant for a landlord is dealing with increasing the rent. “While most tenants do expect slight increases in rent over time, it can ease the process if one offers some sort of bonus to existing tenants for renewing a lease with increased rent. It shows them that they are valued,” says a spokesperson from ACL Real Estate and Property Management.
