7 Tips for Difficult Tenants


What do you do if you have a difficult tenant? 

Owning or managing a property is not an easy task, especially if you have a tenant that is difficult. There are tips and tricks to avoid this type of situation, but you must always be consistent. 

1. Customer Service: always respond quickly, have compassion, and be understanding. 

2. Plan of Action: writing out a simple letter stating the process or plan of action to the tenant will give them relief that something is being done. 

3. Lease: having a well drafted lease is going to save you in the long run. 

4. Rules: enforcing rules/regulations consistently ensures overall cooperation. 

5. Vendors: having a quality list of vendors that can go out to your buildings immediately will satisfy your tenants that have minor issues. 

6. Insurance: having a policy in your lease that requires renters to have renters insurance, will prevent you from having to pay damages that you should not have to pay. 

7. Liability: having your own quality liability insurance will protect you from any surprises that these difficult tenants try to throw at you.
