For example:

  • Unit 12 sprung a leak, and I needed to quickly pay the plumber up-front so that he would perform the work.
  • The lock to the front door of unit 15 broke, so I quickly paid a locksmith to replace it for the sake of security.
  • I needed to touch-up the paint on a wall before showing it to a potential tenant; I used petty cash to cover the expense.

Remember that all money, including petty cash, must be tied to a property or association. Think about who the petty cash belongs to. Does it belong to a property or your property management company?
