When to fire the PM? (by lax_lord [CA]) Posted on: Jul 27, 2021 6:36 PM
Message:

If two months ago you told the PM that the tenant has an unauthorized pet and unauthorized other person residing in your property -- and the response is you can't evict anyway so PM did nothing.

What would you do? --17.234.xxx.xxx

Message:

Find out what the court back log is & what eviction specialist attorney the PM consulted about eviction for non rent payment lease violation. --47.157.xxx.xx

PM says "from experience" it will takes months to evict. SHOULD HAVE STARTED MONTHS AGO THEN. --17.234.xxx.xxx

The pet is a definite reason to serve a NOTICE TO PERFORM OR QUIT. You have a lazy PM. --99.23.xxx.x

Message:

Do you have one to replace the pm with? 99 PCT of them are rotten. Unless you want to manage yourself, find the replacement first.... Fair warning they could be a lot worse. I've seen amateurish mgt from my old co that managed 600, yes 600 units, making rookie mistakes on my houses. --174.234.xxx.xxx

Message:

What do you want him to do? if he gives them notice and they stop paying rent you will blame him for that.Maybe he has enough experience to know not to do anything yet. --72.231.xxx.xxx

During covid there were no evictions allowed. Be glad you have someone paying. --108.24.xx.xx

Message:

Sometimes a PM shouldn't disclose things to an owner. Why? Because once an owner knows of a lease violation, they have limited time to act before it becomes accepted modification of the lease. --47.155.xx.xxx




When to fire the PM? (by P.B. [MI]) Posted on: Jul 27, 2021 8:33 PM
Message:

Another person living at your rental is considered a squatter. And in Michigan squatters have rights. If you know they are squatting and do nothing they have the right to stay in the rental. You may not know their name, where they work, if they were convicted of being a child molester, and the list goes on. So, say your current tenant, who is on the Lease, moves out. The squatter has the right to stay and you don't know anything about him/her.

While I was in Court one day waiting, this scenario unfolded on a case. A squatter was not paying rent and did not have a written Lease, but said he did, just couldn't find it. The Landlord stated there was no Lease. The Court gave the squatter another 30 days to "find" the Lease. The case had already went on for 90 prior days. The squatter had a poverty free Attorney. The Landlord was extremely frustrated, but the Court was taking the squatters word. The Court stated that the Landlord should have made him stop squatting as soon as they knew he was there and because he was allowed to stay he had certain rights.

I never did find out how it ended as I didn't need to go back to Court.

I sure could feel for that Landlord though.

So, I believe I would fire your current PM and hire one who has your best interests at heart. The one you have now is not doing their job. --67.22.x.xx

lax,

Most PMs are lazy and avoid conflict.

Yes the PM should get off their xxx and notify the res to cure the problems.

Overall this is small stuff. Donít sweat the small stuff. Just everyday renter tricks. Deposit the money and go to dinner.

Firing: correction and instruction before firing.

And donít fire until you have a better PM in place.

In Massachusetts the courts are still backed up from COVID and working at a snails pace. --71.184.xxx.xx

Message:

You or property manager should let tenant know you will be filing for eviction as soon as it's legal to do so unless they correct the situation. Even if you can't evict you can threaten to evict. Property manager should have at least taken this very simple first step.

There's already a shortage of housing I can't imagine what it's going to be like when the eviction courts open back up. --174.53.xxx.xxx

Deduct the repairs from the PM salary and hope this lesson helps her/him improve service or as the old saying goes -if you can't train them = trade them- you get what you allow. --76.188.xxx.xxx

Still thinking...

Is this an isolated incident or a pattern of behavior?

Jeffery has a course that teaches you to teach the PM.

Perhaps that could help --24.101.xxx.xxx
