So your a landlord with aggravating tenants! You’re not alone! Most landlords find out the hard way that they have aggravating tenants in one of their rental properties. In this article, we’re sharing 4 ways to deal with a aggravating tenant in Raleigh and surround areas.
If you own a rental property of some sort, sooner or later you’re going to deal with a aggravating tenant in one of your properties. Whether they trashed the property, never paid rent on time, had too many people living there or just call you for every little thing. No matter what the situation, tenants like that will eventually rent your property. Here are 4 ways to deal with a frustrating tenant in Raleigh when it happens it to you.
Try to convince or negotiate with your tenants
You can try to reason with your tenants and explain to them, that you provide a service so they need to pay and treat it properly. Maybe your tenants don’t realize they are inconveniencing you or maybe they’re not paying because they need a different payment schedule (such as weekly instead of monthly, etc.).
Evict your tenants
Evicting tenants can be tricky and even legally messy but it’s an option. Laws most often favor tenants over landlords, so you might have an uphill battle; but in the long run it could be worth the effort to get them evicted from your property and instead get someone into your property who is a better suited.
Explore other legal options
In some situations, you may be able to explore other legal options, from suing your tenants to getting their wages garnished. All of it depends on the situation and the laws governing that situation. As always, you may need to work with a high priced attorney to do this but sometimes it’s worth every penny you spend, to just to get bad tenant out of your rental property.
Sell your property
If your tenants are a real hassle and causing you a lot of stress and expense, then cut your losses and sell your property. Ironically, a lot of rental property owners that sell to us, do so because of the frustrations their facing with their tenants. Depending on who you sell to, you may be required to even need to evict your tenant first (for example, in many cases, we just buy and evict for you). For rental property owners with family living in the rental, this is a perfect solution!
