Quick Tips: Notices to Tenants
Tenants seem to love communicating via text these days and if that’s your thing, feel free to tap away. There are times, however, when communicating through text messages just won’t cut the mustard. Those times include when a landlord needs to convey anything from instructions on how to make rental payments to information about insurance waivers and the need to enter the property.
Because communication is key, don’t rely on your text messages, e-mails and phone calls alone to get the job done. Deliver all of your important messages using tenant notices, through either certified mail or emailed through our website with a read receipt (create that paper trail!).
Notify your tenants:
- When there are procedural changes
- When management changes
- Of changes to the lease (renewal, non-renewal)
- When rent will be increased or decreased
- When a rental payment has been returned
- When you plan to enter the rental property
- When the property is being placed for sale
- To communicate information regarding utility usage and utility payment reminders
- When rental payments are returned
- That you are renewing or not renewing the lease
- Of special arrangements agreed to verbally
- Of no-smoking policies
Communication is key and written communication is the master key. Never rely solely on verbal communication with your tenants, as the he-said/she-said game is never a winner in court.
