Tenant moved in family (by Tonia [RI]) Posted on: Jan 16, 2021 11:58 PM
Message:

Dear Landlords, have a tenant who has who moved in her daughter and grandson. She was badmouthing the daughters landlord and asking if I had any vacancies. This tenant also has a number of other lease violations (parking, trash, smoking and possibly an unauthorized pet brought in by her daughter). Of course, she is also behind on her rent. I wrote a memo about all these lease violations and a notice to quit March 1st. I told her in my letter that I would be willing to retract the notice to quit if these lease violations cease and her rent was paid up. I have not heard a response. With the upcoming moratorium, I realize now this is not good. Any ideas on how to proceed? --172.56.xx.xxx

The moratorium is only for non-payment of rent. You can still evict for lease violations...follow through on the eviction but state the reasons you listed but leave off the part about not paying rent...but have that information available.

There are several threads on this forum about evicting during the moratorium...read up and/or do a search. --99.92.xxx.xxx

I have served a few tenants with a "5 Day Notice to Cure Violations or Quit"! For such things as:

a) having a working BBQ closer than 15 feet from the structure.

b) disconnecting a smoke/fire detector

c) parking 2 cars on the property when they only have 1 assigned parking spot.

d) smoking on the property (non-smoking property)

e) Having a male cat Not Fixed and spraying other tenants vehicles on the windshield, tires and wheel frames.

f) leaving the security gate unlocked after entering or leaving after midnight.

They thought I was joking... I told them that I will take the necessary steps to correct their deliberate actions causing other tenants to loose their Piece and Quite enjoyment of their rental.

Either the step in line or I will evict them. With a multi property you have to show all of the tenants who's in charge.....so no one else will step out of line. Cost of doing business. --47.155.xx.xxx

Tonia,

Is there are reason you gave them 6 weeks to comply?

I give 3 days.

Next, what does your lease say about these things?

My lease is clear: New persons, including family members, spouse, roommates, etc must submit an application and be approved before occupying.

$50 per day fine for unauthorized persons staying longer than 14 days in a year.

$50 per day fine for unauthorized animals.

Her rent: she's broke. She's now paying for the daughter and the baby.

Giver her your list of local and state agencies helping with rent. Help her apply or forget ever getting your rent.

In most states you can still file - check on your state. And remind her the eviction filing will be on her permanent public record FOREVER and is checked by employers, insurance companies, utilities, and future landlords...so she will want to avoid that.

Besides, the daughter can work and bring in extra rent money.

First the tenant is impairing safety by overcrowding rental unit where the norm is two people per bedroom. See if can download local town building and fire codes to check local codes. Most buildings have occupancy load for the number of people that can be on floor where if that was excessive the floor would collapse. See if contact a landlords association where google to find near rentals. --99.236.xxx.xxx

Toni, do you know of any local or state wide LL groups in RI? After a quick I found something called "Rhode Island Real Estate Investor's Group". Looking at their web & FB pages, it appears as though they have more to do with buying & selling RE than the actual daily operation of rental property.

I've found that in addition to the good advice that I get from the LLs on this site, that it's helpful to be active with local groups. For my area, Mass Landlords is an ideal place to learn about things that are relevant to LLing in MA. In addition to offering info for newbies & veteran LLs they stay on top of new LL laws as well as pending legislation. --71.174.xxx.xx

Thanks all, great feedback. When I make inquiry about the outstanding rent, her response is "at end of month" and "My hours cut with covid19" etc. I informed her (via text) that I am willing temporary allow the 2 family members, with a written agreement, and increase rental rate etc. I am working on this paperwork and told her I will be back in touch end of week. Unbelievable how entitled these tenants are, but the government overreach is not helping. --172.56.xx.xxx
