Advice needed: I am working on this with my regional as this just came up over the weekend and we are off for the holiday today but I have gotten 3 resident complaint emails about a resident over the weekend (who has been an ongoing complainer to management about things himself that he doesn’t think we do well or other residents being loud etc) the complaint and concern is that he was taking pictures and or video of young girls in the pool... Show more

Guest Insider Discuss with regional and attorney to see what can be done. Take all their information down and see if there are witnesses, etc. document everything and then do what your regional/attorney advise.When is his lease up, can you non-renew?
loader
loader
Attachment
Tami Anderson Now until January 1,2024 . I think mutual termination would be our first step but he declines any meetings when I am going to do this as he is not dumb and he knows that we can take steps as such.
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider Bottom line is you must have your management company's approval in order to do anything. If they do not back you up, then you are liable for anything during this guy's lifetime....and the other resident's lifetimes.
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider I feel like there's something in your lease that probably states that each resident is responsible for the welfare safety and comfort of their neighbors and that would be a lease violation if those were not upheld.
loader
loader
Attachment
Megan Goodmundson police are blowing you off, being lazy. escalate it in the ranks of your local precinct. issue a termination to the creep, revoke his pool area priveleges
loader
loader
Attachment
Tami Anderson Megan Goodmundson that is the first thing I’m doing is locking him out of the pool. Thank you I will follow up with the police chief on these reports.
loader
loader
Attachment
carol adams You can non-renew him if his lease is up soon.
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider Carol Adams That's the easiest solution, if you can't get the cops to get him on a crime, and tenants are complaining, non-renew. You're not saying they did anything wrong, but that tenant may not be the "best fit" for the community
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider At this point I would offer him to be let out of his lease. He is not happy, this is obvious and seems there is nothing that would make him happy otherwise.
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider We had a similar issue but this person was mentally unstable and posting videos of residents minding their own business, walking their dogs, tinkering in their garages, etc. onto social media and writing things that could ruin their lives like “this person tried to sexually assault me”. With our media laws we couldn’t do anything about that part BUT with enough resident complaints of her being a nuisance we were able to serve her with what we call a 10/15 in my state. 10 days to cure the issue or 15 days to vacate. If the issue does not resolve and they do not move, we evict. You just have to make sure you have all the documentation from past issues, etc.

loader
Attachment
Guest Insider Police - which you are not. Make a report, get a copy. Parents should file police report. Focus on real, proven lease violations and make sure your company's legal advisors are aware.

Attachment
Lisa Vercellino Not sure what is in your lease contact, in Texas, you would do a lease violation, if he does it again 72 hour notice to vacate and go from there. He cannot be bothering other residents.Just out of courtesy, in the pool in January. Do you have a heated pool?

Guest Insider Lisa Vercellino I wondered about the pool too.

Dave Scruggs Slow down people....! Sure, he may be a creeper. He may be a photographer. He may just like pools. "There is no expectation of privacy at your pool as long as he is a resident." He can legally take all the photos he wants to. I know it sucks, but that's the law.

Kathy Chaney Dave Scruggs never assume as the saying goes.

Tami Anderson Dave Scruggs good point. That’s why I need the input. It’s good to have everything in mind when I meet with my regional in the morning.
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider No offense to anyone, but if this were my child I would be pushing the police! Especially if a minor. That is BS that the landlord has to do. The landlord is responsible for lease violations but not criminal activity of video minors. You should follow attorney advice and if parents aren't willing to pursue and testify you may not be able to do anything. Landlords are not law enforcement. We can not determine if something is illegal. We are not a judge or jury. It is no different then if in a grocery store and you notice someone filming your child. You call the cops not expect the store employees to handle
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider I agree and I am for the women who’s children we in the pool being filmed and photographed. Took a lot in me today besides being home with my 4 year old, to not go to my property and knock on his door and tell him how I feel about his actions personally. I have 4 children of my own.

Debbie Gallogly We have found that local "police" tell us they can't do much because it's private property, so we've gotten into the habit of calling the Sheriff. Try them and see if they'll have a conversation with the guy. The parents can also call the sheriff to file complaints.

Cindy Shearer Next time his lease comes up for renewal, give him notice that his lease is not being renewed. We have done this in the past with problem tenants. They go somewhere else to annoy people!
loader
loader
Attachment
Brenda Davis The easiest thing to do is a lease non-renewal. The more you “accuse” him of things from second hand info the more problems you will cause for your property owners. 1st, hopefully you have a written and signed complaint from each of the residents. If not good luck if you end up in court with this guy. He could/can turn this back on you as you are harassing him or worse retaliation because of his prior complaints. Good luck
loader
loader
Attachment
Tami Anderson Brenda Summers Davis I have 3 emails from 3 different residents about this and other occasions that have come up since these residents have talked to each other w this pool incident. The mother of the girls has video of him videoing them. And the man who called the police, he approached him and he told him he was just “getting exercise” walking around the pool.
loader
loader
Attachment
Brenda Davis Tami Anderson every office should have a standard “incident” report that anyone with a complaint or injury is required to complete which includes; a place to check off if a complaint, property damage or injury, nature of incident, date and time & location of incident, COMPLETE detail & their name, address, contact info AND their signature. Have a disclaimer at the bottom that states your contact information will be kept private unless required for a court hearing or required by our property insurance. This sets you up to be able to explain that you will not advise the neighbor as to who complained unless it is needed for legal action. Keep in mind that any neighbor can harass another and what you don’t want to happen is to unknowingly get caught up in the middle of it. If they want to complain by all means take time to listen NEVER disclosing that you’ve had other complaints. Listen, advise them you will email them the complaint form and that you’ll be happy to address the issue once... Show more

As rents grow higher and higher, renters will demand more. Try to not take it personally (hard, I know) and focus on the fact that you’re providing the most important and special product on the market. The home.

We currently have the Amazon Hub but trying to get away from that.

Tonya Henrietta We have parcel pending. Most of our issues are couriers related. On occasion have some resident data issues like missing people, move outs being back on the list etc. recently after 2 years starting to have issues with the lockers themselves. Rusting, lockers not opening, not registering when a package is entered/removed. We pay for their customer care and they pretty much are useless. Take forever to get responses and because they are not local to us our team has to do the majority of trial runs on repairs. It would be nice to have a tech just come out and solve the problem. We’ve never had another system so unsure of how it rates agains competitors. I will say overall just slightly better than accepting packages in the office. We still are package police and often having to go looking for miss delivered packages. The benefit is for our residents who can now get packages after hours, for us it’s still quite a bit of work.

Kassy Ivins Nikki Carbine we have Amazon Hub right now and we make all carriers use it. Either leave at resident door or in the Hub.
