5 Tips To Communicating With Your Landlord

If you are renting in the local Southern California (So Cal) area, then you understand just how important it is to be on the same page with your landlord. What can you do to improve your communication with your landlord? Take a look at a few tips below.

1. Be Honest

You need your landlord to trust you. Therefore, make sure that you provide honest information on your rental application. If you show your landlord that you are honest and open, he or she will give you the benefit of the doubt in the future.

2. Give Plenty Of Notice

If you need help with something, such as a repair, give us much notice as possible. That way, your landlord can take care of it during business hours. If you can prevent your landlord from waking up in the middle of the night, unless it is an actual emergency, he or she will appreciate you.

3. Ask For Everything In Writing

No matter how nice your landlord may seem, get everything in writing. That way, they will not be any confusion down the road. This can prevent a lot of disagreements from taking place.

4. Check The Property Info Yourself

Make sure you learn as much as you can about the property on your own. This includes the mailbox number, the alarm code, and any HOA agreements. If you go out of your way to take care of the property, the landlord will take care of you.

5. Record Existing Damage

Finally, always record any existing damage before you move in. If you see something wrong with the property that you did not do, let the landlord know. That way, you do not get blamed for it in the future.
