Lastly, do not let your tenants fall behind in the rent. This is the biggest mistake landlords make. When a tenant falls behind in the rent for an extended period of time generally they have lost a source of revenue, and their condition is not going to change any time soon. Do not be Mr. Niceguy and allow them to stay in the property and accrue delinquent rent and late payments. The tenant only ends up putting off what they need to do and digs themselves into a deeper hole they cannot dig out of. The only recourse at that point is resorting to the law. Early on in the process if the property manager takes action the tenants still have options available to them. Eviction is generally an indication that the landlord/manager was not being diligent in their work and let the situation get out of hand.
Although we perform eviction services, to date Empire Property Management LLC has not had to evict even one of our own tenants. If you, or anyone you know, need help resolving a tenant related issue we would be glad to help.
