    Yes. Requiring a letter from the vet might help clear this up. Just remember, you might lose some prospects with puppies. Everyone loves puppies!!

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'BAD DEBT COLLECTIONS--HOW ARE WE DOING?' in the forum.
    So, the cost for the attorney to place a judgement on them would be less than the percentage the collection company gets. I've always felt the bad debt that is placed on their credit report was the #1 reason we collect, anyway.

    Hmmm? Sounds pretty good to me.

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' BAD DEBT COLLECTIONS--HOW ARE WE DOING?' in the forum.
    I contacted our collection service yesterday, following up to see if our former manager was current on sending in bad debt files. They sent me a report of all files that have been sent in since November, 2013.

    What I found really shocked me. We use a well-known national company for debt collection...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'LIHTC FORMS' in the forum.
    Check your state's LIHTC website. Mine has forms on it, yours might, too. I no longer manage LIHTC, so I don't have any current forms for you. You can try Google, as well, for your state.

    Good luck!

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Craigslist Success' in the forum.
    I have been using Craigslist for advertising rentals since 2008. It is still a valid lead producing source. I am in the Charlotte, NC market. Even with hundreds of ads posted and re-posted throughout the day, it is still worth the few minutes a day to post there.

    Craigslist has improved their...

  • My niche is that I have one of the few two-story townhouse communities in my market. I market them on Craigslist, Postlets and my property flyer as follows:

    "No Neighbors Above or Below--You'll Love Townhouse Living"
    "Private Entrance with No Noisy Breezeways"

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'What is a Reasonable Time to Repair?' in the forum.
    I've just been through so many techs this year and it usually takes about a month to figure out they are not doing their job. Personally, if I called and said my dishwasher is not working and no one showed up in 3 days, I would call to find out why.

    It seems everyone is too busy to follow up to...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Tenant Complaints About Children' in the forum.
    I don't think she likes children. She's young, probably early 30's. This is the 2nd call since he moved in. He only gets the kids weekends. Both times she called 7:00 p.m - 8:00 p.m. I think it's crazy!!
    I told the resident not to worry about it, that I wasn't going to do anything about the kids...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'What is a Reasonable Time to Repair?' in the forum.
    I'm looking for what a judge would consider a reasonable time. My reasonable time is 2 business days. However, when we have a tech not doing their job for a month then another month catching up with the new tech, we start getting the emails "I want compensation for not getting it repaired in a...

  • Sandy Martin replied to the topic 'Permit Only Resident Parking' in the forum.
    We have 29 parking spaces for 32 units that are 2 and 3 bedrooms. We allow one permit per adult driver in the household with a maximum of 2. There is no where else to park. Our biggest problem is overnight guests, as well. It also helps us identify unauthorized occupants.

    Our permits are large,...

  • Sandy Martin created a new topic ' Tenant Complaints About Children' in the forum.
    I have a new resident with a 4 year old and 9 year that visits on the weekends. Since he moved in, the neighbor next door has complained to me about the noise they are making. She called the police on them last evening.

    So around 8:00 p.m., his children were dancing upstairs to music when the...

    I would know my competition! I include our accomplishments and goals for the coming year that would increase their sense of value for the property. For instance, we just had a new Publix grocery store open just down the street and are planning some improvements for the coming year.

    I have...

    We've had so many maintenance tech problems with one of the properties I oversee where by the time they are fired (6 in one year), we discover a lot of work orders were not completed. Usually a month before we find out something hasn't been done.

    Then, the tenant wants compensation for their...
