Inside T&H: Handling Evictions and Collections

By Jeremy Tallman on Mar 10, 2019 11:00:00 AM

In the grand scheme of being a Landlord, there are few things more painful than an eviction.

No Landlord wants them.

But, if you do this long enough, you’ll almost certainly have to evict a Tenant.

At T&H Realty, we evict less than 1% of the Tenants we place.

Unfortunately, in spite of our best efforts and in spite of extreme Tenant screening, evictions are a harsh reality of being a Landlord.

Because, as we all know, life happens: Divorce, job loss, illness ,etc.  

Evictions, as you might guess, require significant care from our team, and we are prepared to communicate with you heavily until the situation is resolved.

Rest assured that we're here to expedite the process and get your property re-rented as quickly as possible.

Below is a basic guide to how we handle evictions for our Clients.

Inside T&H: Lease Management and Enforcement

By Jeremy Tallman on Mar 3, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Usually, when you think of what a Property Management company does, the first things that likely come to mind are collecting rent, handling maintenance issues, conducting move-ins, and other notable events.

And, clearly, those are are important functions. 

But, you may not even realize all of the smaller, in-between tasks that come with the job.

The tasks associated with managing and enforcing the terms of our Lease make up a big part of what we do for you as a rental property owner.

The key, obviously, to managing this minutiae comes down to a strong Lease. To use a cliche... the devil is in the details.

A strong Lease not only sets expectations and standards for the Tenant, but it protects you and your asset.

And even with a strong Lease, you must have the systems and resources in place to enforce it.

So, today, we’re going to discuss a few ways we do this for you.

Inside T&H: Renewals

By Jeremy Tallman on Feb 24, 2019 10:00:00 AM

As we’ve discussed numerous times, vacancy is a cash flow killer.

Not only is it important to rent the property quickly, it’s equally, if not more important, to keep your Tenant in your property.

Renewals are a Landlords best friend.  

And as we’ve mentioned in other blogs, renewals are a win-win-win situation, so we do our best to make as many as possible happen.

I say renewals are a win-win-win for the following reasons:

  1. You don’t have to put out any money for turnover costs or suffer any vacancy.

  2. The Tenant doesn’t have to deal with the cost and hassle of moving.

  3. Each member of our staff gets a year end bonus dependent on the amount of renewals we have, so the more the better!
