Property Management California – What should owners never do?
By Utopia Property Management
TEMECULA, CA. – It doesn’t matter if you’ve owned rental property for years or are just getting started, there are a variety of things that an owner should never do including the following:
Enter A Property Without A 24-Hour Notice
In California, every landlord must give a 24-hour notice to enter their Temecula rental property. The notice should be posted or delivered during normal business hours and every attempt should be made to arrange the best time for you, the owner to enter the rental.
Some of the most common reasons a landlord might have for entering a rental property include to make repairs, deal with emergencies, make improvements, or to sell the property.
Use An Ad Hoc Lease When Renting Properties
Thanks to the Internet, it’s possible for every property owner to find lease templates online but just because you can find a free lease temple online that doesn’t mean you should actually use it.
Your lease is one of the most important documents you should use when owning rental properties because it lays the rules that the tenant must follow when they live on the property.
Even though we live in California, another important thing that you should never do is overestimate the rent that you can ask for your rental property.
Since most people have access to the internet, they will know within minutes if you’re asking a fair market rent or not so it’s best to first do your research and rent your property for a fair market rent.
Not Treating Your Rental Like A Business
Last of all, but most important, one of the biggest mistakes that you don’t want to make as an owner is to not treat your rental properties as a business.
Treating your rental properties as a business will enable you to ultimately earn more money from your properties quicker than you imagined and help you to enjoy the cashflow / ROI from your rentals that you deserve.
