Are you a landlord with frustrating tenants? You’re not the only one. Almost every landlord has to deal with at least one frustrating tenant sometime during their career. In this article, we’re sharing 4 ways to deal with a frustrating tenant in Wichita and in the 67201 zip code.
Almost every landlord faces a frustrating tenant at least once. Maybe the tenants trashed the property, or never pay rent on time. In some situations there could be an inappropriate number of people living in the rental, or they need constant care with maintenance or repairs. No matter what the situation, tenants like that will eventually rent your property. Here are 4 ways to deal with a frustrating tenant in Wichita when (not if) it happens it to you.
Try to negotiate with your tenants
You can try to reason with your tenants and explain that you provide a service so they need to pay rent for it. Furthermore, as a tenant they have some obligation to treat the property well. Perhaps your tenants don’t know they are inconveniencing you or maybe they may need different terms to act as good tenants (such as a weekly pay schedule instead of monthly).
Evict your tenants
Evicting tenants is difficult and even legally complicated, but it’s an option for you. Laws often favor tenants over landlords so you will not have much assistance. But it could be worth while if the tenant is bad. It is better in the long run to have someone in your property who is a better tenant. You will have more cash flow and fewer expenses with good tenants.
Explore other legal options
In some situations, you may be able to explore other legal options. You may sue your tenants for payment and in some cases you can even garnish their wages. Local and state laws will dictate other legal capabilities in the case of terrible tenants. Of course, you need to hire a good attorney but sometimes it’s worth the price just to get a bad tenant out of your rental property.
Sell your property
If your tenants are irritating and creating mental and financial stress one of the best options could be selling your property. In fact, many rental property owners that sell to us do so because of the frustrations they face from their tenants. Depending on who you sell to, you may not even need to evict your tenants first. In many cases, we buy the property and evict for you. You just need to sell the property to us and we will handle the rest. For rental property owners with their own family living in the rental, this is an ideal solution.
