Your property management dilemma: Faulty HVAC

The HVAC is experiencing issues and your lowest-cost estimate to get it fixed is $800. What would you do?

Click the card that represents your best response and see if your property management instincts are right on the money!

Hire a licensed and bonded contractor to make the repairs

This is the right answer! Find a reputable contractor and get pictures of the work before you make the final payment. If the work quality is good, use the contractor again on a future job.

Trust your tenant to fix it and give them a $400 break on the rent

WRONG! This is a clear violation of the lease agreement and could result in negative consequences in court if other issues arise. Faulty work could also cause serious damage to your property.

As an owner, you are responsible for all maintenance and repair costs for your property. If you put aside money each month in your property budget to cover unexpected expenses, you’ll be better able to manage your costs over the long run.
