Experienced and successful small Ontario landlords know how important it is to rent to good long term tenants.
How Do You Keep Your Tenants Renting From You?
The key is to have a great property at an affordable price and then take care of your tenants and treat them like the 5 star clients they are.
Our members were shocked reading a story about how some corporate landlords were trying to evict their long term tenants just because they wanted a comfortable living environment and wanted to keep their air conditioners.
This is not how the landlord-tenant relationship should work
Unlike some corporate landlords who want to evict their tenants due to having air conditioners, we want to help our tenants “beat the heat” and be as comfortable in the summer as they are in winter. Many small landlords used to rent and we want to give our tenants what we always wanted.
Our Members are discussing this and already some great advice has popped up. For example:
“I make sure my windows are large and wide and with screens to keep out the mosquitos. My tenants appreciate the wind and breeze and it keeps them comfy and happy.”
“I own a single family home with central air. The tenants pay for their own usage and it’s been a win-win situation for years. Having central air is very attractive to prospective tenants.”
“Having efficient air conditioners in my units has led lots of great applicants wanting to rent from me. Who wants to rent from a place that is too hot? That would suck!”
“I rented for years before buying my property and know how much I appreciated my landlord supplying an a/c when I couldn’t even afford one. Awesome landlord! I am now that Awesome landlord and making sure my tenants are happy!”
“I make sure my tenants know they can contact me whenever they want if they have any problems. If it’s too hot and the a/c is not working I make it a priority to get it fixed. Who can sleep when the whole world is getting hotter due to climate change!”
Working With Your Tenants Is Essential
By working together on all issues seeking win-win results small landlords can be very successful. While corporate landlords are often rigid, realizing that our tenants are human beings and our five-star clients and working together is the way to make your small “mom and pop” rental properties a success.
