Let the current resident know they will be responsible for hold over rent which is 25% increase of current rent and is due to be paid daily, on top of that they are responsible for all rent for the new residents full lease term. If the rent portion is not paid in advance they become delinquent and in default immediately in which case we will begin the eviction proceedings. (I know this part is more difficult, but make it known the steps and be confident in your delivery)
I’ve never had a resident decide to stay after informing them of the costs and potential consequences.
Also, I make sure their notice clearly states that they are giving us permission to lease the apartment and that they may not remain in the apartment without permission from management. They lease also says this, but I add it to the NTV as well so we’re double covered.
