Building a relationship strengthens communication and builds trust between two people. Effective communication is essential between landlords and tenants to ensure clarity in negotiations. One-third of landlords in the US are experiencing challenges in negotiating with their tenants. Here are tips in building the landlord-tenant relationship.
Secure your Rentals on Times
The trick to paying your rent on time is to set up a direct debit. This setup will automatically send rent to your landlord and avoids delay in payment. Make sure that your account contains sufficient funds to prevent bounce-backs. In cases of delay in rent, negotiate with your landlord, and provide adequate notices to secure trust relations.
As landlords, you must be understanding and patient. Provide reasonable and fair time allowances to your tenants. Every person experiences a problem, so does your tenant. Adjust payment periods that will help your tenant in paying rentals.
Observe and Maintain Cleanliness
Your home is your landlord’s property. Be responsible enough to keep the property neat and pleasing. Always clean the bathrooms tiles and walls, keep the carpets tidy and pleasant, correctly dispose of your garbage, and keep the lawn trimmed. If you have a pet, always clean after it. Your landlord entrusted you with his property, and it is your responsibility to maintain its quality.
Landlords should visit the property every 6 months for an inspection. Ask for concerns and damages to maintain your property intact. Oblige your tenant to be responsible and maintain cleanliness in the area.
Be Professional and Courteous
Regardless of any situation, courtesy and respect must be prevalent. Misunderstanding should be talked out calmly and with reason. Do not be rude, always watch your tone. Before outraging, ever think of the possible impacts it may bring. Reasonable negotiations are done through calm and efficient communication.
Comply to Lease Agreement at All Times
Maintain integrity and responsibility by correctly following your landlord’s contract. Be courteous enough to understand the do’s and don’ts specified. Sticking to the rules and respecting demands gives an ample opportunity for trust and support.
Landlords, on the other hand, should be fair in constructing lease agreements. Be reasonable and understanding in making contracts. Be honest with your tenants and be part of their quality of living.
