Bed Bugs & Beyond
I just found out that one of our clients that we helped rent their investment property just 4 months ago. . the tenant asked to be released of the lease and moved out.
Apparently they found BED BUGS in the house and after an extensive professional treatment, it seems that they were still not satisfied.
No question asked. .
Never mind the signed lease. .
The Bed Bugs went BEYOND their duties and ruled the contract void.
Never mind that my clients rehabbed the property totally
and they hired a top exterminating company to deal with the bugs when it was at first reported.
The tenants just left and demanded a full release.
We are not property managers, but
The reality is: to be a landlord, you need thick skin and don't let emotional issues mix with a contract signed by two parties. . .
You can be a fair landlord, but don’t get pushed around like a stepchild.
Over the years I learned the hard way that there’s a lot of taking, pushing and elbowing from some experienced tenants that are capable to take a new virgin landlord and convert them into a puppet.
If you can not follow this. .you should not be a Landlord
No Pay? - No Stay

My car broke down- No Stay
My daughter is pregnant - No Stay
My paycheck bounced - No Stay
I can only pay you half a month - No Stay
My dog was put to sleep. . sleep somewhere else . -No Stay
“Bed Bugs? . .I will not charge you extra. .but we will have to evict them. .”
The fact is: Your problems are your problems and let theirs be theirs!
Sorry to sound too harsh, but in reality, I'm a very compassionate guy in person.. .but when it comes to money, even if you are a family member, business is business and I transform.
A landlord should have reasonable time and effort to deal with issues that are beyond his control to accommodate tenants.
Is too late now for my clients that remained silent and somewhat embarrassed at the unfloding situation.
Bug Beds & Beyond?
is Beyond my comprehension
If you are not Landlord material. . you should call a professional property manager to handle your tenants.
We are not one. .but I can direct you to one. . .
