Disruptive new tenant (by Tonia [RI]) Posted on: Jun 29, 2022 12:26 PM
Message:

Dear Landlords, I have a new tenant that has been especially disruptive (nuisance police calls from neighbors, nuisance guest towards me). This new tenant has been duly served a notice to quit for July 31st. She told me she is "withholding July rent" since I am terminating her lease. She also stated she is filing harassment charges against the neighbor (great long term tenants, have no issues wite). This bad tenant keeps texting me even though I specifically asked her not too (wanting to argue that is not fair, she is being prejudiced against etc). She stated she was contacting her lawyer. I told her do what she feels fit, but I needed her to vacate premises accordingly. I am in the process of gathering the police reports, and printing out her text messages. She stated that prior tenants have moved "in and out" of this space due to neighbors. Which of course is a lie. This is a studio apartment more short term rental.tenanthill All of this was via text message to me this morning Should I follow up with a written letter about all this? I suspect her "lawyer" will be a free court appointed one. I do not want any contact with her at this point but I want her to move out. --68.15.xx.xx

I would ignore her,as soon as you can start the eviction for non payment --74.77.xx.xx

Do as above. Start the non payment as soon as possible-regardless of if/when she says she is moving. Ignore babble texts-only if an emergency should you respond and take someone with you. Do not correspond with the attorney. Most of the time it is a scare tactic. The less you say, the better.

Just curious-did you terminate due tp lease violations or is she MTM? I don't understand why people fight to stay somewhere that they seem to hate. --73.230.xxx.xx

I agree that you should proceed with a non-payment of rent eviction if the Tenant withholds July rent. I do not know your state's Covid rules, and if the non-payment is now filled with mediation and rental assistance hoops to jump through, but pre-Covid it was usually the easiest route.

Do not engage in back and forth with this tenant if you can avoid it.

I'll co-sign with the advice above. Curious how this person screened. Landlord references should have revealed something. Of course, they could have lied just to be rid of her. --172.58.xxx.x

Message:

I ended 3 MTM leases in past year for 1) chronic late payments with attitude, 2) not bothering to tell me about a bed bug infestation, and 3) moving in ex-con boyfriend the first week of tenancy after stating on application she did not plan on any other tenants for 90 days.

I now offer only MTM leases. People seem less "permanent" since COVID. I find most of those receiving the boot tend to complain about stuff.

After going back and forth, I've settled on doing exclusively m2m leases as well. Makes it easy to get rid of bad actors. --209.122.xx.xxx

I don't like any of that. If you respond to text, use Ok or K or received.. don't try help fix anything since she yelled lawyer. It's a new world. Sorry you have to endure this but remember they are moving. They don't belong here. Wheezz. --172.56.xx.xxx

Gkarl, this nuisance tenant had good references, prior military personnel, has a CNA nursing profession and had good landlord references. I agree, she must have lied. This situation is going bad to worse, and I am spending more time around the place keep eyes on it until she is gone. Thanks to all landlords for your great advice. --172.58.xxx.xx
