Advantages of the Allowing the Property Management Company to Handle the Tenant Eviction Process
The landlord feels sorry for the tenant while the tenant may feel sad or embarrassed to be evicted. The property management company takes care of the tenant eviction process professionally on behalf of the landlord. The pros of contacting a property management company to take care of the tenant eviction process are discussed below.
Understand the laws of eviction in your state. Write a lease agreement that adheres to the laws of eviction. The legal eviction process is explained in the landlord and tenant act. Instead of hiring a lawyer, allow the property management company to write a lease agreement for your rentals that adheres to the eviction and tenancy agreement laws.
It is illegal to change locks or lock out the tenant, shut down the supply of gas, electricity, water, and other utilities, harass the tenant through threats, or throw the tenant’s property out of the house even if the person has accumulated too much unpaid rent or damage the property of the landlord. The property management company does not take matters into their hands while evicting the tenant because they understand the law and follow it.
Your relationship with the tenants remains strong even after the property management company evicts some of the tenants. You are in no way involved in the eviction process hence the remaining tenants will uphold a right image about you even when they rub shoulders with the employees of the property management company. The property management company will make your friends and relatives who are renting your apartments to understand that the apartments are meant for the business not to cultivate friendships and strengthen blood ties.
The property management company looks for a valid reason to evict tenants to maintain an excellent reputation for your rentals. Some of the valid reasons for evicting tenants are if they fail to pay rent, break noise, health and occupancy rules, damage the property significantly, break lease agreement such as subletting, using the property for illegal purposes.
After multiple attempts to reason with the tenant are futile the property management company proceeds to evict the tenant. The company always negotiate a payment plan for the damages the tenant has done on the property or the accumulated rent, plead with the tenant to change his or her lifestyle so that it fits the lease agreement and more.
The property management company only files an eviction with the court if the tenant refuses to honor the tenant eviction notice. The tenant eviction notice will serve the tenant the required number of tenant eviction notices before it goes to court.
