Most of the landlords will get a headache if they have bad leasers. What most landlords want are renters who can pay promptly and without delay, but because of the high price of the commodities, it is rare to get a leaser that is prompt to pay their obligation. Being a landlord, it is such a big loss on your part when a good renter moves out, so we compiled few helpful and budget-friendly ways to prevent these leasers from moving out and looking for another place.
1. Be a true person to them.
It is a big plus for leaser if the landlord they have is a true person, meaning the type that would converse with them and not like a bank collector. Simple gestures of asking if they are having some problem with the place such as burst pipe or broken toilet may not cost you a penny but are effective ways to let them know that you sincerely care for them.
2. Be willing to reach out to them.
You don’t need to have a costly renovation on the place to make the leaser appreciate their stay. Willingness to reach out for the needs of your leaser can be a simple yet very amazing way to make them appreciate that you are their landlord. Freebies such as packed noodles in the cupboard or coffee in the pantry from the landlord will make their lips curve into a smile, don’t you think? This simple gesture is not costly yet has a dense effect on the leaser.
3. Show appreciated for the good acts.
If your leaser takes an extra effort to keep the place tidy and clean, show them that you appreciate it. If they pay rent in advance, you can think of little ways to give back to the small positive act of your leaser. Showing appreciation doesn’t only confine in the financial aspect. Why not give the leaser some grocery items, but of course it would be nice of you will give a discount on the rent if they happen to pay in advance or on time. If you can’t do such, there are other ways to motivate the act so they will keep to it.
4. Make use of the date and occasion.
Rebates, renewal incentives, birthday compliments and others are just among some of the things that can entice the leaser to stay renting the place.
5. Be willing to bend some rules when necessary.
The set rules are all right, but in some cases bending them for some valid reason is very okay for the renter, so don’t be too tight on it. Your leaser will give back the treatment they got from their landlord. If you are understanding and willing to give a little leeway, they would feel more at home in your place. They will also patronize the rules when their freedom to act is not compromised. Say, for example, all leasers should be inside the compound within 10 o’clock in the evening, but when one leaser ask permission that she can’t go back home before that set time because of some errand, then allow it. It won’t hurt being a little more understanding of the situation of your leaser.
