One important role of a “Property Manager” is that of a liaison between the owner and the actual tenant, providing a buffer for those owners who are desiring to distance themselves from their tenant and not wanting the inconvenience of having to handle repairs, collecting rent, etc. Duties of a property manager can differ greatly between property managers, so it is important to find one that will meet the expectations of what you are desiring with hiring a property manager. Here are a few things that our company provides as your property manager:
Here are a few things that our company provides as your property manager:
- We do the paperwork for the county Landlord business tax receipts that are needed

- We use a soft ware called “Rentec” that will have our own portal and will allow you access to see at all times debts or income that has to do with your property. Your rent proceeds will be deposited directly into your bank via ACH into a bank within America.
- We work with an attorney to have a legal lease written up
- We do tenant screening (with a background check, income verification, landlord reference, and a credit check) with an application process
- Communicate with HOA’s of the community that your property is located in
There are so many day-to-day procedures and details that are needed to this profession, including managing the accounts/finances of the properties and communicating with owners, tenants, and contractors. Litigation is at times considered a separate function, set aside for attorneys. Although we do everything we can before we have to have an attorney involved but if an attorney has to be involved we communicate this with you as the owner in the process of it all. Special attention is given to landlord/tenant law, therefore is a necessity that a property manager is current with county, state, and Federal Fair Housing laws and practices.
