Big Mistakes Property Managers make

We asked our landlords, to identify some of the biggest mistakes their ex-property managers made and what finally persuaded them to self-manage

There have been some massive blunders, like:

·        Not putting repeat bad tenants on Bad Tenant Databases and other unsuspecting landlords inherit the problem tenants

·        Letting tenants get too behind on payments, resulting in evictions that could have been avoided, with more effective early intervention.

·        Rushing inspections and missing out on or overlooking critical issues, that have resulted in more expense for the landlord

·        Not doing proper screening of tenants, which resulted in unscrupulous tenants trashing and in some cases, destroying a landlords’ property

·        Not managing a landlords’ expectations, or even doing a landlord induction at the start of the relationship

·        Not returning calls and emails or taking property notes on inspections

·         No handover process for the landlord when property managers leave and a new manager is appointed

·         Not handling maintenance requests in a timely manner- making the issue bigger and causing damage to the property or sometimes, just hiring the wrong contractor.

·        One property manager didn’t tell his landlord that the tenant was running a child care centre from the property- Oh Boy!!!


Remove the "he said, she said” from the equation.
