Transfer between &nits (by GKARL [PA]) Posted on: Jul 19, 2021 6:01 PM

I have a tenant who wants to transfer into another unit. When she moved in initially I was experimenting with move in fees so she's only paid a move in fee which is approximately 1/2 of the security deposit. Of course conditions have changed markedly since then and for current tenants I'm generally collecting a double deposit. Her housekeeping is okay and there is no significant damage to her other unit that I'm aware of. I know she'd be hard-pressed to come up with a double deposit. I'm thinking about hitting her with another move in fee or a transfer fee rather than a security. She's been with me for about 4 years. The fee would be about 1/2 of the normal one month security deposit. If there were any damages to other unit she'd have to pay for those. Thoughts?

There are recent post in this subject. I would just give her the current terms and not apology.

Do you want her to move to another unit? I have found that regardless of how good they are itís always somewhat of a pain.

I see no problem in telling her the requirements and that you must treat everyone the same. She will then decide if itís worth moving or not. You only tend to lose when you start bending rules to do favors for people.

If she canít pay more in deposit, she canít pay you for the work/time that this move will cost you

Surely after 4 years you have to do something to the unit that can't be billed to her.

When a tenant upgrades from a 1 to a 2 bedroom and the rent is more, I can easily hit them up for a larger deposit. I had someone move from a fixed up no-bedroom unit at $995 a month to a 1 bedroom unit with older paint, blinds and appliances. So I bumped up the rent to $1,250 and got an extra $255 deposit to reflect the higher rent.

This tenant is a contractor and painted the unit himself, I provided the paint, tarps, ladder, roller and brushes. The couple is expecting their 1st baby.

If you are collecting double deposits in PA, then you have to return one after twelve months.

I would allow a very good tenant that pays on time and doesn't damage the unit to transfer and adjust the security based upon the differences in rent, so in your case 1/2 the new rent.

The upside about this is I can improve her unit and raise the rent. Upgrades to her unit would involve mainly painting and flooring I'm also raising the rent on the vacant unit she'd like to move into.

Yes, in PA we have to return one month after a year.
