Why Hire a Professional Property Manager?
Should you DIY or hire a professional? A few things to think about before you decide:
#1 Liability. Texas Property Code is the law that dictates what is required from a landlord.
Smoke alarm locations. Door locks. Peepholes. Suppose you don't follow the law & a fire kills a child.
#2 Screening tenants. Bad tenants prey on DIY landlords. They will trick you into thinking they are good residents.
#3 Evictions. Do you know the law? Do you have time to go to court?
#4 Emotional Support Animals. Federal Law dictates what you must do. Must you consider an applicant with a Large Pot Belly Pig?
