Property management is quite a rewarding job. You can manage real estate rentals and earn a decent living from passive income. However, it’s not all sun and rainbows. It’s almost the same with renting a property. Renters don’t need to worry about all of the legalities and other responsibilities of owning their own home.
While it is nasty to hear or even say, evicting a tenant is kind of part of the industry. Renters also expect this scenario when they decide to rent.
So the question is: why are tenants being evicted? Are there ways to avoid eviction? Here is a list of the top 5 reasons tenants get evicted and how to avoid it.
Damage to property
Property rental is inevitable as the cost of living becomes high and expensive. Additionally, some households prefer renting over buying a house.
Since there are different types of tenants, landlords prefer to work with tenants who are careful, responsible and responsible enough to take care of the property they are renting. However, there are situations where this does not happen. Unfortunately, some tenants cause property damage and stress owners.
Wear and tear on property is inevitable, such as simple stains on the floor, problems with door hinges, and other minor issues that require minor repair. However, there are some landlords who come across problematic tenants. These tenants have a long history of property damage and must be evicted before they can cause further damage to the property.
So that landlords avoid interacting with this type of tenants, they consult their files and documents. A good selection of future tenants and the requirement for specific documents are some of the measures they take. These documents include the tenant’s criminal record, credit checks, court and eviction records, etc.
Usual delay or missed payments
One of the difficult things to deal with when renting a property is meeting the payment terms. There are many reasons why tenants miss their due dates, and it can be tedious and tedious work for a landlord.
Since a eviction for non-payment of rent is fairly common, some homeowners require a post-dated check mode to avoid further payment issues. However, some tenants may pose problems.
If this happens, landlords can still give the tenant a notice of departure. The notice will contain specific legal clauses regarding the tenant’s interest in paying the missed payment. If they still miss said agreed date, the landlord can legally evict the tenant.
Cause public nuisance
Even in a friendly and quiet neighborhood, some people can be quite difficult to deal with. This is sort of expected in tight-knit suburbs, although it’s still evident in a private neighborhood. Public nuisance varies from situation to situation, but constant public nuisance, such as loud and thundering sounds, regular wild parties and screaming fights, is a whole different story.
If you are causing trouble or receiving complaints from your neighbors, it could mean a serious problem and possibly grounds for eviction. Neighborhood complaints play an essential role. If the neighborhood constantly complains about a tenant’s nuisance, the landlord can fix the problem by asking the police for help.
To avoid this case, tenants should carefully read what is stated in the agreement, and the landlord should be specific about this detail.
Breach of the lease
This is very important for many landlords and tenants when renting out properties. Rental agreements are legally bound, which means that any violation of the terms and clauses stipulated in the rental agreement is liable to any legal sanction. This mainly means that the landlord can evict the tenant when they violate the agreement.
A specific example of a lease violation is having someone living on the property who is not included when signing the agreement or parking at a different stand not listed for the tenant. Landlords can always be specific and detailed when drafting the rental agreement. This could be useful, especially since some tenants can be quite problematic.
Like any property rental, a rental contract expires on a specific date. Some landlords expect the contract to be long term, while others will have it short, based on their rental valuation. This is to protect and maintain the value of the property, which is stated in the lease agreement with which the tenant is entering into.
When the lease expires and the tenant does not notify the landlord of the renewal, the two parties can still meet and come to a specific agreement. Either the tenant will renew the contract or choose to move.
This situation can be quite tedious in terms of legality, as landlords are strict in renewing leases. But if the lease expires and the landlord decides to end the contract even with the tenant’s interest in renewing it, legal action should take place to fix the situation.
The eviction is unpleasant. However, some situations cause such unwanted actions. The five reasons mentioned above are just a few, but different owners can say more possible reasons in the lease. Property management is quite tricky, and anyone assigned to this job should be both intellectual and wise in its management.
