Basic Knowledge of Property Management

 

Property management is a real estate aspect that handles the maintenance plus other requirements. Our goals are to protect the property while producing as much income as possible. As per my knowledge, any property can be managed by a contracted property management Apache junction firm, tenant, or property owner. Real estate firms have the preliminary liability of property management along their concern in the property-management business.  After the responsibility of property management has handed over to the buyer, the owner of the property plus the tenant has to concur to a point of property management responsibility. This may vary from complete liability on the landlord or tenant. We’ve seen a hybridized contract that has the property-owner accountable for key repairs plus other features of property management.

 

Property management Scottsdale work for a landowner and cooperate with his or her tenants. The property management firm may gather rent; locate tenants and bond for repairs.  In many circumstances, the property management firm executes the job of the landlord in all situations. Some of them include neighbor complaints, eviction, and clashes stemming from evasion of rent payment. Needs for property management firms differ by state to state wanting real-estate licensing for property-management firms.

Why is renters insurance so important?

 

 

Why is renters insurance so important? Statistics say most renters do not have a renter’s insurance policy. Some property management companies will require this and make it part of their lease agreement. Renters insurance protects your belongings, covers hotel cost, and medical expenses. Red Brick Property Management would advise anyone looking into renters insurance to speak to an agent for more information specific to their situation. Property Management in Mesa!

According to a survey done by III (Insurance Information Institute) the number of renters have increased but very few have a policy in place. The survey concluded that only 37% of renters actually carry a renter’s policy. (https://www.iii.org/press-release/number-of-renters-is-on-the-rise-but-few-of-them-have-insurance-092214)

Property Management companies will always recommend a renters policy but not always require it. When tenants have a renter’s policy it helps keep tensions down in the event of a claim. Tenants have tried to hold owners accountable for their hotel stay when the AC quits or the home has flooded. Why Renters insurance? The answer is simple to protect the tenants belongings and potential expenses when the unexpected arises!

Here are a few myths in regards to renters insurance and we listed the most common ones below.

 

  1. The landlords insurance will cover the tenant’s belongings.
  2. Renter’s insurance is too expensive. You can actually get a policy for as little as $10/month.
  3. You don’t need a policy because you don’t have valuables. The truth is the average person has $20,000 worth of belongings in their home.
  4. Renters insurance only covers your possessions. This is not true; renters insurance also has liability coverage.
