As a landlord or property manager, do you ever feel like the word “landlord” comes with a negative connotation? The word has been in use for over 1000 years, dating back to an Old English concept, in which tracts of land were owned by a single person who came to be known as a "lord," and those occupying the land became bound and dependent on their lords for protection and, of course, obligated to pay rent for that privilege. Even though our culture has moved well beyond this ancient system, the lingering negative essence of the word "landlord" remains for many. Hear from host Bob Preston, MPM® RMP®, and NARPM Property Managers, Mark Scott and Danielle Rogers, MPM® RMP®, on how we can start changing the narrative.

NARPM Radio: Changing the AC Filter – Who’s Responsible?
The lease has a clause that the tenant has to change the AC filters on a regular basis. But do they? Every lease should have a clause stating that the tenant is responsible for this maintenance, but oftentimes we can’t rely on them to actually do it. When the tenant calls with a complaint about the air conditioning, is it their fault for not changing the filter? Florida property management attorney Harry Heist tells the story about his own personal experience with this task and relates how it’s not always as easy as you might think. What’s the solution? Take a listen on this week’s NARPM Radio episode on AC filter changing and liability. As always, be sure to check with your local/state attorney for laws applicable in your area.

Improper lease signing can cause a myriad of issues, and you need to know what specific measures to take to ensure you don't have problems later on. As always, make sure to check with your own legal counsel for the law in your state or locality.
