Learn Simple Tips For Dealing With Problem Tenants!
Over the years you’ve worked hard to build a portfolio of rental properties but, you’ve recently rented to Modesto Renters that are turning into problem tenants, and you’re frustrated.
In this article, we will offer you several tips you can use for dealing with all types of problem tenants from tenants who pay their rent late to tenants at your Modesto Rental Property, to tenants who may break the rules on a regular basis.
Dealing With Tenants Who Pay Late
Initially, one of the best ways to avoid having to deal with Modesto Renters who pay their rent late is to establish the rules from the very beginning so they know that rent is due no later than the 5th of every month and once it’s late they can expect to pay a late fee.
If your Modesto Renter is late more than once paying their rent, the next time they are late you should send them a notice to pay or quit just so they know that the next time they are late they will have 14 days to pay their rent or move out.
To encourage tenants to pay their rent on time consider offering a small discount to tenants who pay their rent before the first of the month just so you can reward them for when they pay their rent on time.
Dealing With Modesto Renters Who Break the Rules
One of the biggest problems that every Modesto Rental Property owner will have to deal with at one time or another is tenants who break the rules or terms of their leases.
When this happens it’s best to meet with these tenants initially to learn their side of the story and find out why they are breaking the terms of their leases, but if the rule breaking continues you should consider sending them a notice to cure or quit.
Dealing With Tenants Who Damage Your Rental Property
To protect yourself from damages to your rental property you should take pictures and video of your rental before Modesto Renters move in just so you’re aware of how the rental property should look when they move out.
It’s also a good idea to schedule one to two inspections at your rental property each year; if damage is found you should communicate with your tenant and send them an itemized bill so they can pay for those damages.
