How to Deal with a Belligerent Resident Manager

Dealing with a belligerent resident  manager is not something that anyone wants to have to worry about. However, when you are renting, it is something that is very common. At some point, there is a good chance that you will have to deal with a property manager that is not very pleasant. It might seem like they are angry all the time and never want to help you with anything. If that is the case, here are a few tips to keep in mind when dealing with them. 

Kindness

If you have ever heard the expression "kill them with kindness," this is where it applies. If the manager is very hard to deal with, you need to try and be as kind as possible to them. If you give in to their mood and start being rude back to them, you will get nowhere. If you are consistently kind to them, eventually they may soften up to you and work with you a little easier.

Exhaust Other Options

If you have a problem with the property that you are renting, try to exhaust all other options first. If the problem is something that is easily fixed, see if you can fix it first. Property managers get annoyed when people are always calling them for everything.
