Asking for Rent Not Harassing?

ask-the-attorneyThe Landlord Protection Agency®presents John Reno, Esq.,a highly experienced Landlord – Tenant attorney based on Long Island, NY.

Q:  Dear Mr. Reno:

Hi. I live in Colorado. We had to move quickly for a job in a different town. We posted the house for rent and were contacted by a family. My husband and I realized traveling 4 hours for maintenance would be too difficult. We advised interested party we decided not to rent. They said what if we do all maintenance? Ok. Done. Instead of a deposit they agreed to do a few things we couldn’t do before we moved. Anyway. Nothing repaired. Rent 4 to 15 days late. Water bill still in my name, almost disconnected. We drove by property to see deck destroyed and unsafe as well as a brand new swing set we couldn’t take. Trash everywhere, lawn dead…etc. posted a notice that we would be down in 1 weeks to.fix things. I have not been able to contact them since. Told me last time i talked to them that i was harassing them because i would ask when rent would be paid after they were late. Any advice? I just want them gone.

A:  Oh boy, Big problema. You didn’t mention about the lease. I hope you didn’t give them a year or more. This is why, I don’t like the one year lease to start with new tenants. I prefer six months. Now if these people don’t pay, you’ll do a non-payment eviction. But if they pay, even late, your going to be stuck with them until the lease expires and then evict as holdovers. Just to top it off, you let them in without security. Another “no-no”. Another lesson learned.

Happy National Ask A Stupid Question Day! Now’s your chance to ask us questions you’ve always wanted to about #Leasing and #PropertyManagement, but didn’t because you felt they might be “stupid”.

Property Manager… solving problems you didn’t know you had in ways you can’t understand.

Although few outside the profession may understand what we do and how we do it, the basic facts remain unchanged: Property Managers play a critical role in a landlord’s success. As the rental market grows increasingly tumultuous, property managers toil quietly and efficiently behind the scenes to come up with solutions to problems that the average landlord doesn’t understand or even know he has.

Planning a Non-Renewal

Q:  Dear Mr. Reno:

My tenants lease will expired the end of May. I do not wish to renew the lease, planning on remodeling. What would you recommend. I anticipate that the tenant may be difficult.
Thank you,
Lee Fadavi

A: I would notify them as soon as possible, that their lease will not be renewed. Also, review your lease carefully about what notice, if any, is required and how to give it. But even if no notice is required, I strongly recommend it.
