New Property Managers...KNOW Who to Call

By
Property Manager with Gibson Management Group, Ltd.

Frequently, there are posts on Fb asking for recommendations for LICENSED and INSURED workPERSONS to perform X tasks...Electricians to hang ceiling fan, Licensed plumbers to unclog a sink....This is MONEY wasted and knowing who to call is crucial when dealing with someone else's money.

 

Licensed, to many,, means that they have a license to do business in a city, state or county meaning they are licensed and pay taxes on their income to that city, state or county each year based on a % of their earnings.  

 

Otherwise, LICENSED, means they are licensed by the regulatory agency that governs contractors at various levels depending on their expertise as evidenced by examinations and work experience....this is what LICENSED should mean.

 

My painter hangs my ceiling fans for my clients' rental properties...I buy from Lowe's, bring to job/house and he installs.  Most "handypersons" can do this also...hanging a ceiling fan does not require a licensed electrician...most, in my area, will say that they don't do as it is something that is BELOW their expertise.

 

Likewise, you can have a handyperson snake a clogged toilet or replace a fluid master in a toilet; however, if it comes to replacing hot water heater - especially if they are gas/propane - a specially licensed plumber may be needed.
