Every Rental Owner Should Have A List of Essential Contacts

As a rental owner, you likely have your handyman, electrician, and plumber on speed dial, but what other vital contacts (and phone numbers) do you need to have in your phone?


You should use a variety of repair services. As much as you like to use the one handyman who does “everything”, it is good to have someone for each specific type of job. Especially when it comes to issues such as electricity and plumbing. This will not only cut down on callbacks but it will also guarantee you get the best work possible. 

  • Electrician
  • Plumber
  • Roofer
  • Appliance repairman
  • Handyman
  • A/C (if you have it)
  • Locksmith


Most of you will have a gardener already lined up. But there are other services than you might not need on a regular basis but should have in your back pocket just in case. 

  • Gardening
  • Pest Control
  • Tree Trimmer
  • House Cleaner
  • Fire Extinguisher Maintenance (Multi-Unit Property)
  • Tub and Sink Resurfacing


The next category is people who will maximize the financial benefit while limiting the liability of your property ownership.  

  • Accountant
  • Insurance Agent


The last group is only going to be specific to certain aspects of your rental property.  

  • Coin Laundry
  • Chimney Sweep
  • Waste Services
  • Security systems for entry
  • Pool Service
  • Exterior Window Cleaners

Property management is hard work, but if you have your ‘essential contacts’ list prepared in advance, it will make your life much easier.
