relations stem from mutual understanding, trust and respect. The
expectations and obligations of both parties should be clear at the
beginning of the relationship. All residents should receive a
copy of the building regulations. The manager then must be firm
in enforcing those regulations, particularly the ones concerning pets,
maximum number of residents per apartment, security precautions, trash
handling, noise and prompt rental payments.
Initial tenant screening can eliminate many of the problems
arising from non-compliance with building rules. There are
agencies that run checks on rental applications filled out by
prospective tenant for public housing. The prospective tenant's rental
history will yield information on the pattern of rent payment,
behavior, history of property damage, noise complaints or other
problems. There are enough law-abiding and respectful prospective
tenants, so the manager should not tolerate nor cater to the ones who
are abusing the system.
