Verify Change of Terms (by George Mancewicz [CA]) Posted on: Aug 9, 2022 2:23 PM

What is the best method to verify a tenant/resident understands a newly issued Change in Terms document. My tenants of a SFR have constantly parked their cars on the lawn so I issued a Change in Terms with a notification that parked cars on the lawn will be towed at the owner's expense. Since I do not reside near the rental & do not have a property manager, it is difficult to view the property frequently to enforce this change in terms. I asked neighbors to call me if they see cars on the lawn, but by the time I get to the SFR rental, the cars are gone. Any suggestions?

I've often had this problem. For tenants in C properties, most of them just don't care a bit what you say or what is in the lease. They intend to do whatever they please and "up yours".

The best way to deal with it is wallet training, but then you need to be there and hit them EVERY time they do whatever is wrong.

If you can't be there, next best thing I found is BIG rocks-BOULDERS- AT LEAST @ TONS and 4 feet around separating the area you want to keep them out of. These need to be so big they cannot drag them out of the way or they will. Really big. And tell them if they move them it will be a massive fee to put them back.

Now, if you are not willing to block off the area with something that can't be moved, the next best thing is to get rid of them.

Either way, it's expensive. Think about this as well-if they don't care about your yard and willfully do it anyway, what are they doing to the inside of your house? --24.180.xx.xx

Expected behavior from low income type tenants,either block it off or have them towed.I would have said or live with them parking there but now that you have told them not to you will appear weak if you keep letting them do it. --74.77.xx.xx

Restore the grass when they leave, use the deposit money. Until then do what you can, deal with the rest. Border of big boulders? --172.56.xx.xx

In California you will probably also need to post a no parking sign before a towing company will tow.

Once your tenant sees a sign your problem might be solved. --174.195.xxx.xx

Great answers! Bolders, No Parking signs and evictions are the best solutions. Thanks for your responses. --47.153.xxx.xx

Usually the tow companies have contracts with commercial or big apartment complexes, but call them and ask. If it isn't too far out of their way, maybe you can get a contract to have them swing by and check for any cars on the lawn and tow them. If it is posted and the tenants have been notified properly, the tow company can tow without any more notice to the tenants. --76.178.xxx.xxx

I had a hardcore parking violator - took other residents spaces and had motion detectors and lights to spot and thwart the tow trucks and couldn't be evicted during the moratoriums. Would intimidate other residents and he and his relatives acted like cartel enforcers. After a joint SWAT/DEA task force raid that uncovered boxes of cash and cocaine in his apartment finally got him out, he is now facing 3 strikes and 25 years to life. Good luck if you have this type of C Class tenant. --201.140.xxx.xx
