Landlord Tips on Tenant Complaints
What Do I Do if My Tenant Complains About Silly Things?As a landlord, I prefer to be notified of any problems concerning one of my investment properties. It is always better to nip a small problem in the bud before it becomes a larger problem.
When dealing with many tenants, it is not unusual to have a tenant who wants extra attention from the landlord or property manager. Some people like to complain for various reasons. Sometimes it is merely a matter of loneliness. Other times, the tenants may want to make you work for their hard earned rent money. This amounts to a service call, your time and expense that should have been applied somewhere else more productively.
What is the solution for this situation?
Of course the tenant will be upset about any charges billed. You can then warn the tenant not to call for minor complaints that fall under their responsibility, or future charge will apply.
