Lease Violation-First Day (by Jeff [CO]) Posted on: Jan 10, 2021 10:40 AM
Message:

A teacher with blue hair (warning sign missed by me) moved into a unit yesterday. I received an e-mail around 6 PM from a tenant that her loser friends were smoking on the building's front porch.

It's a non-smoking property.

I responded by saying I would take immediate action. I'd pull video and issue a 1-day notice to the offending tenant. The complainant then regretted telling me. She said that she was afraid that she had started trouble. I responded by saying the other tenant had done that. No response. I guess she expected me to do nothing, as most landlords would have done. Ah, tenants...

Time now to check the video and post the notice.

You can't make someone move for a first-time lease violation in this state. --76.120.xx.xxx

Since you are selling i am surprised you filled an empty unit --72.231.xxx.xxx

Message:

Ken, I have filled 4 units in the last week or so. I have one vacancy and will have two more at the end of the month. Just trying to tread water. Obviously the building is worth more when it's full. I have a 4-plex under contract now for $950K - fully rented. That would have been tough with a vacancy.

But on larger buildings it's okay to have a few empty as the new owner can do value-add work and get his own tenants. --76.120.xx.xxx

Jeff, I gotta say we butted heads a while back on here, but since then I have grown to appreciate your LLing style and have a great deal of respect for you. Itís extremely unfortunate that itís come to you selling everything! Your wisdom will be missed, and I wish you the best moving forward. --173.48.xxx.xxx

Jkj, wow, thank you, sir! Right back at ya! You're one of the good ones.

I have a no-nonsense style with tenants, but I am also fair and nice with them. But I give no quarter.

I have a feeling that you are a top notch manager. You have been making some great contributions here. --76.120.xx.xxx

Jeff, I glad that you immediately started handling this "issue" before it became a real "problem". (g)

I also will be sad to see you stop posting but am glad that you're able to sell at the top of the market. --71.174.xxx.xx

Message:

While I would take immediate action about the smoking, I donít understand what blue hair has to do with anything? How is that a warning sign of anything?

A number of people I know do funky colored hair. Many of them have advanced degrees and solid jobs. --67.43.xxx.xxx

:) Thanks, Steve. You're also one of the pros here. I appreciate it.

It will take a while to unload them. Who knows how long.

Hey, I admire efficiency. I hear Andrew LLoyd Weber has a nasty personality. He asked his friends why people take an instant dislike to him. His answer? It saves time! LOL!

I appreciate a tenant who shows their true colors right up front so that I know what I am dealing with, early on.

If I've said it once I've said it a hundred times--- NOTICE TO CURE you just can't boot people out (as much as we would all like to)

This is for violations. --99.103.xxx.xxx

She actually wrote me back to apologize and said that a bunch of jerks helped her move. She knows I am paying attention and that I take the lease seriously. I think she'll be okay.

Great job Jeff. I would have done the same. Best to nip it in the bud promptly.

That being said, my former spouse once approved a woman covered head to toe in tattoos and various piercings. I doubt I would have approved her. Her husband looked normal though. And this was awhile ago when that look was less popular. She stayed for 10 years and was a dream tenant.

But IDK, even after the positive experience that ďlookĒ would be a turn-off.

I will miss your posts too. I admire you moving forward. Itís what I want to do as well. I just havenít been able to do that to anyone yet and have only sold when I have a move-out. I suspect it would be easier to do if they werenít single family homes. At least youíre not selling to someone expecting to move in themselves and having to displace good tenants. --216.186.xxx.xx
