    Make sure your company pays the bill. We couldn't get a lease for a week because corporate was behind on payments.

    Can't change the lease.

    The print is TINY!!!

    It is a good lease for court.

  • This could be a survey, but I'm interested in trends across the country with occupancy higher than ever in a lot of areas.

    I stopped taking vouchers several years ago because the time from application to move in took about 3 weeks. With only 47 units, the loss to vacancy was just too much. There...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Occupancy Rate vs Price Point' in the forum.
    I've always used 100% with a waiting list as time to increase. But, I always verify it with a market survey to see where everyone else is.

    You can always raise rent and offer concessions (ugh!), if needed.

    Housing Authority inspected one of their client's apartments and found water stains on the wall in a closet. The water stains came from the closet above the apartment where the water heater pipes were leaking a couple of weeks ago.

    They are requiring us to have a professional environmental...

  • I'll bet a lot of us have been through this. I had tenants planting a garden with corn and everything else right behind their patio. I told them to dig them up and put them in pots on the patio.

    Would it be possible to give the tenants 30 days to remove the plantings they cherish to pots on the...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'LETTER ENCOURAGING TIMELY RENT PAYMENTS?' in the forum.
    Just yesterday, one of the tenants at the problem property I have told me that the letter she got was very "hood." She said it was unprofessional and harsh. She is a law student, who loves criticizing everything we send out.

    Yet, she told us she was going to pay rent December 5th (November's...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Hiring police presence' in the forum.
    I oversee a 32 unit apartment community in a high crime area. A lot of houses just passed us are boarded up. Bus stop is in front of the property. Heavy foot traffic to the convenience store 2 doors down.

    People walk in and out constantly and our local police rep tells me we have a drug dealer...

    Where can I send them to? We have a new manager in charge of 2 properties with terrible delinquency. We are trying to "put our foot down" and have come up with several stern letters and plans to get their rent.

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Unqualified Traffic' in the forum.
    The applicants who are not qualified play the numbers game.

    They apply everywhere hoping someone will take them. I don't know why management wants answers from you.

    They are still collecting the application fee. Maybe it should be increased. That is income for the owners.

    I would take as...

    I would feel so violated!! Reminds me when my sister got a call from her old high school that a lady had found her high school ring. Turned out it was the grandmother of a friend of her ex-boyfriend, so we knew he had stolen it.

    Do what you have to do to ban her from the property and be glad she...
