Hard-nosed lanlording can have negative connotations, but what does it really mean? It is what YOU make of it. Landlord tenant relationships can be difficult or easy – it is totally up to you, the landlord. One way to make it easy on yourself is to set expectations up front, and to ensure that your tenants understand and follow them. Some call it “hard-nosed” landlording, but to me it is common sense property management, and more money in my pocket.
