Now is a tough time of year to rent rental homes - for landlords and rental prospects.
Maybe it because they are fed up with (1) the noise from their neighbors; (2) too high utilities; (3) or have a baby coming in 7 months....the seem to contact me saying they HAVE A LEASE and NEED TO MOVE.
A recent prospect indicated their lease was not up for 9 more months; however, the WANTED to move.
This brings me to THEIR 2 dilemma....what landlord would willingly take rental prospects who are demonstrating that they are willing to break their lease AND how will the pay their NEW landlord when their OLD landlord takes them to court and gets a judgment.
Most professional landlords and multi-unit apartment properties already jhave a process whereby tenants can get out of their lease.
While I do not show vacant properties unless I know the prospects can move in with 30 days, I will advise prospects that want to break their lease to check with their current landlord first for their options for moving early.
...I don't want another landlord's headache...I have enough of my own
