Property Management Pet Peeves

There are downsides to any job, but for property managers, the pet peeves can make or break your day. Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management reveals four of the most common pet peeves that property managers experience.

Propped doors

Security is important, but tenants forget that when their hands are full or they're waiting for guests to arrive. Leaving doors propped is a huge liability for the whole community. Open doors invite trouble. Even if burglars aren't lurking around the corner waiting for a door to be propped, they still increase the likelihood of something bad happening.

Patio violations

Rules about grills and open flames on patios exist for a reason, but many tenants see those rules more like guidelines that are meant to be pushed. But grills violate fire codes, and have to be dealt with seriously. 

Screening tenants

It would be nice to trust every prospective tenant at their word, wouldn't it? But with expensive property to maintain, managers simply have to do their homework - as boring as it might be! Those background checks and reference calls can save property managers a lot of headaches down the line.

Parking violations

For communities with limited parking, violators can be the bane of management's existence. Clearly labeling parking options, though, can help nip this problem in the bud.
