How to Deal with Bad Tenants Part 1

You never wanted to be a property manager. Yet now you find yourself making sure your tenant’s living situation is physically pleasant and legally compliant—although they are not making it easy. The last thing you want to do is deal with tenant trouble, but what else can you do? Before thinking, “how can I sell my house fast in Tampa, FL”, take a few minutes to read this article.

Review Your Contract

Start by reviewing your contract to check for written limits to those late-night soirees as well as any documented recourse for that cranky neighbor who’s always fighting someone. Your contract should include contingencies for as many (bad) situations as possible. Any ambiguity in your contract can negatively affect you when an issue arises. Remember to also review contract details with your tenant to provide additional clarity prior to their acceptance and signature. Should you have to deal with a tenant issue in the future, confidently reference, rely on, and follow the resolution protocol listed in your contract.

Work with Law Enforcement

Still thinking, “how can I sell my house fast in Tampa, FL?” If your tenant issues involve disorderly or illegal behavior, get law enforcement involved as soon as possible. The issue could affect other tenants and, potentially, be dangerous. Work with law enforcement to handle incidents and to have a presence in your community. That presence can serve as a deterrent to parties and illegal activity.
