■ Rent Masters is a professional and fully insured company and now Bonded for your assurance! Although the day to day duties seem manageable, if you don’t have the proper insurance on managing your rental as well as knowing all the current land lord tenant codes and discrimination policies, it is a tremendous liability for an owner to self-manage. A tenant can raise a lawsuit for anything these days. It is not worth the risk.
■ Tenants are leery of bad owners who may be overly biased on check-out conditions, withhold deposits unjustifiably, or don't apply the land lord tenant code properly when dealing with tenancy issues. Some tenants have expressed preferring to work through an agency which will be ethically bound by Real Estate standards and fairly apply landlord tenant code which protects tenants rights as well. This may be the reason why some units by private owners get less traffic from good applicants.
■ Current contracts need written permission. If you are self-managing and using the board of realtors or another party’s contract, you may be considered illegally using copy written material. The Board of Realtors rental agreement in particular is popular to use by owners BUT requires a RE BROKERS signature to use and is illegal to use privately. Online downloadable contracts often have major aspects of the Hawaii landlord tenant code and contractual terms missing or portray illegal and unenforceable terms if operating in our state.
■ Best Quality Best Fee Rates. This is our motto. We pride ourselves on providing the best quality service and we fully support our owners in any dispute or resolution. We have a long-standing reputation of providing the best management fee and rates in Hawaii.
