Landlord-Tenant Relationship

A business relationship should always be maintained between the landlord and the tenant. The main problem that evolves when an owner manages his own property is that this relationship becomes personalized, making it very difficult to enforce the lease provisions.

Tenants view the professional property manager as a business person. When enforcing lease provisions, they are less likely to become offended or hostile because they understand it is a business relationship only.
