Service Contract

As a rental property owner, you are responsible for taking care of any necessary emergency repairs and maintenance requests. It is quite stressful when you are handling your tenant’s requests by yourself and calling any available service providers who can come and do the repairs right away. Looking around your property, do you think at any time there may be maintenance and repairs needed to be done? Does the landscaping need to be updated or a deep cleaning needed? 

Getting a service contract with your property management company is the solution. An expert property management company offers service contracts to rental property owners to ensure that when any home improvements are needed, it is done right away.

What is a Service Contract?

A service contract is an agreement between the property management company and the rental property owner. In this contract, the property management company will offer the service and maintenance of the property they will be managing.

These contracts describe the scope of work, how much the job would cost and the process of completing the job. The agreement also includes how long the service contract is for, the payment terms, any confidentiality agreements, and warranties. 

Do you need a Service Contract?

Signing a Service Contract with your Property Management Company gives you a lot of benefits. Landlords use this as protection against any unforeseen circumstances that can get expensive.

If you have a responsible property management company and you entered a service contract with them, these types of unexpected requests are dealt with immediately with minimal costs to you.

Some services provided are pest control services, property maintenance inspection, common area cleaning and some proactive maintenance like checking the gutters for cleaning, fixing or replacement and cleaning the dryer vents. Home damages and maintenance should be tended right away or it will cause bigger damage and become very costly.

Landlords who want to get a peace of mind against expensive, unexpected repair or maintenance bills can get a service contract with their property management company. This is also an advantage for landlords who don’t have enough emergency funds to cover for any unexpected expenses for home damages.

Read the whole contract as there are exclusions, items or services that are not covered. Read everything and clarify if something in the contract is not quite clear to you.

 

Conclusion

Getting a Service Contract is your guarantee and safety net in times where unexpected services are needed in your property.
