Q: Name one thing property managers wish tenants knew.

A: We don’t make the rules, we’re simply paid to enforce them. Every property manager has encountered that tenant who is disappointed, because the property manager refuses to disobey the terms of the lease to benefit a tenant’s situation. Property managers wish tenants understood that each state has Landlord-Tenant Laws designed to protect the rights of both parties in the lease: the landlord and the tenant. When tenants sign a lease, the terms of the lease are not merely made-up by the property manager, but rather established and enforced by the state’s Landlord-Tenant Laws. The state governs when rent is due, when late fees are assessed and what amount to charge, how much notice to give before moving, a landlord’s and tenant’s responsibilities, among others. The lease constitutes a contract. Good tenants and good landlords respect contracts, and good property managers enforce them.
