Challenges with tenants

Bad Tenants Behaving Badly

Tenants come in all shapes and manners. The large majority are honest and will pay the rent on time. They also maintain the property without being asked. Unfortunately, there always are a few rotten apples in the barrel. These can make a rental property a migraine for the owner. It isn’t just the attitude, but the time you have to spend correcting the mistakes these careless people make.
Ethically Challenged
When we say careless, we mean the tenant could not care less about the inconvenience they provide. These are people who are more than just late on the rent. They may have a history of playing fast and loose with the landlord. Worst-case scenarios happen when a tenant tries to represent himself or herself as the owner of the property. This dishonest person will attempt to rent, or even sell, the property to an unsuspecting victim.
It might sound incredible but bad things can and will happen. A bad tenant may have a history of taking advantage of situations. The only way to prevent such a person from renting is doing a background check. This investigation is time-consuming and the landlord may not know where to go. A property management company has the experience and knows where to look. The same staff of professionals have dealt with unruly tenants in the past and know how to handle the situation.
Eviction is Not Easy
Evicting a tenant is a process. Procedures have to be followed carefully so as not to violate a standing law. A landlord who is not familiar with the steps can create problems he or she is not hoping to have. Property management companies in San Diego are familiar with what has to be done. It is not true that it is impossible to evict a bad tenant. Due process, however, must be followed. Alta Vista Properties knows how to handle bad tenants
