Dealing With Bad Tenants

Irresponsible and careless tenants are any landlord’s biggest scare. A bad tenant can really make a landlord’s life quite miserable, because of the distasteful acts that they could commit such as not paying rent, destroying the property and its contents, using the rental for illegal activities and allowing all kinds of environmental hazards. Fortunately there are some methods which could help a landlord minimize the possibly of such misbehavior.  

Before giving the keys of your rental unit to the future renter, sit down on the negotiation table and forge a rental agreement. If you feel that this particular tenant may cause problems think ahead and draw an airtight rental contract. Be sure to include every restriction you can think of and do not forget to mention what the consequences will be if the tenant violates his lease responsibilities, obligations and restrictions. Make sure that the lease is drawn accordingly to the local laws.

Bad tenants have the annoying habit to run to attorneys every time they commit a lease breaching act. Often they describe themselves as martyrs, in the hands of a dictator landlord who wants to evict them. You do not have to worry if the documentation of the rental agreement is done in accordance to the local laws, the tenant will have no ground on which to stand on. For example if in the rental contract it is written that the tenant should use a firm that offers cleaning services Finsbury Park based, every six months, and the tenants does not honor the clause, then the landlord can evict him because the agreement has been breached. Therefore the renter would not have any legal argumentation to be relieved from the given responsibility.

To save time, money and worries it is better to sit down in person with the bad tenants and make him an offer before filing an eviction claim. Give them the opportunity to move out without having an eviction stain in their dossier. Make them understand that they have five days to leave the rental unit or else they will be sued and evicted via court order: a judgment that will stain their rental history for seven years. If they agree give them the five days to gather their belongings and do a final cleaning. Even if they do not conduct a final cleaning it is better to let them go: pay a firm to do it for you, at least you will get rid of the awful renters. In terms of companies that offer end of tenancy cleaning Finsbury Park has many firms that work with a fair and affordable price list. If the bad tenants do not agree to move out, then file a lawsuit and get them evicted.
