In my world, it is okay to TRY new professions. It is also okay to leave them behind.

How do you feel about tip affidavits as a form of income proof? In the past we have not allowed as a form of proof but open to it potentially. Thoughts?

Guest Insider They should be claiming their tips so they will have proof on their pay stubs or tax returns . You don’t need an affidavit for that. And if you really want to use one, have it filled out by their manager .

Katy Schmidt That was my initial thought as well…thanks!

Guest Insider I have been in the hair industry for 12 years. I promise you not everyone claims the tips but they make the money. What they have between them and the irs as far as claiming tips is their business. But a tip affidavit is a adequate representation of what they make. More than half of our income is derived from tips.
loader

Attachment
Miles Scruggs I'll agree that many people don't claim their tips. That said it is a bit weird that you'd consider renting to them when their main argument to rent to them is that they are committing a crime and that crime makes their income appear lower than it actually is.

Guest Insider Miles Scruggs when you work for tips you understand I suppose. Lol

Guest Insider The cash has to be going somewhere. You can’t make rent, car or utility payments with cash. We had a tattoo artist. We had them provide a letter from shop that he was paid in tips and that he paid his space rent on time. Then had them provide cash app documents showing his tip transactions. You have to have a trail to follow. Anybody can say they make anything

Miles Scruggs If they flow the funds through a bank account and report to the IRS then you can use the bank statements and tax returns to qualify the income. If they are keeping the money all off book and committing tax fraud, what makes you think they will respect your lease?

Katy Schmidt Miles Scruggs that is how I feel, but someone from my group asked as she had used it with a previous company

Attachment
Miles Scruggs Katy Schmidt I'm just not sure I see any advantage to that. Affidavit is just a fancy word for someone scrawling with crayon "I swear I make $500,000 a year." on the back of a napkin and signing it. That is an "affidavit". Just because someone uses an official or less common word to describe something, doesn't increase the chances that it is authentic.

Guest Insider I’m a basics girly and I believe and having a multifaceted partnership approach: - Hit up some of the places around your community and bring them something sweet. See photo for a creative floral bouquet or you can do other candy or cookies. - Tell then you aren’t soliciting but are in the neighborhood because you wanted to post about them on social media to your new residents moving in and wanted to check it out. - Ask them if they have any menus, services sheets, business cards that you can share as part of your move-in packet.- Then ask then if if you can leave some marketing materials behind or if they have time to discuss a partnership. If they don’t want to partner or display your stuff, do your post on social and tag them and hopefully they will share. People that are going to these places are more likely qualified. Also no business says no to more business. I love doing service industries: hair salons, nail salons, med spas, fitness studios or classes, niche health services or... Show more

Guest Insider I used to do interior design! This space would absolutely be ideal for coffee bar, snacks, information etc. It has a wall that pops and grabs attention. Also keep business cards, candy, cookies, etc over there. Since it was for concierge, surely it's right by the front and can't be missed. And if it's in budget, add fresh flowers when you can. Really makes an impact

Guest Insider One more idea that requires a little more facilitating…a local love pop up. You could invite local business or artisans to have a pop-up store at your community to sell stuff. Bakeries, bagel places, artists, jewelry makers, local stores, etc. Bringing the best of the neighborhood to them.You could do a trade with the business, they come sell to your residents and they post or email your apartment details to their digital network. Or maybe you make a small cut of their sales or charge a fee for the day to rent the space.

Any tips for busting residents who illegally AirBNB their apartments (short of booking them yourself)? It's a lease violation with us as it is at most communities. We have a few active listings at my property and I want to bust them stat. Most of them are using our model photos.

Jose Maciel Alex Mann hold on you have 5 tenants doing it??? You must be in a good ABNB spot. Your company may want to consider doingbit themselves.So when someone actually rents the ABNB they are going to walk in to something completely different SMH. Issues like this is why I've considered only writing M2M contracts.

Brooke Frederickson Alex Mann to piggyback on Mike's answer, contact them and act as if they must be fake and find out if they need help reporting a fraudulent listing.
loader

Attachment
Alex Mann Brooke Frederickson I need to know who the resident is first, which I can't tell based on the listing as they all have the building address but not the unit #. And the photos don't help.
loader
loader
Attachment
Brooke Frederickson Alex Mann oh yeah that is a problem. I think you can still report the listing though although I admit I'm not sure how that process works.
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider Alex Mann they should list a name as a host on the listing. Cross check that to your leases and screen shot listing. Send lease violation notices. Document heavy
loader
loader
Attachment
Alex Mann No such luck. I think they're all partnered with a 3rd party entity. No host names match a resident's name.
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider Alex Mann you can message a host without booking. Perhaps create a fake airbnb account and message with questions about unit that might help. Such as are these actual pictures of unit, does it allow smoking, what type of view, is it close to pool., etc
loader
loader
Attachment
Alex Mann I'm going to do that. I also reported the listings to AirBNB and told them about our community's policies on AirBNBing and the negative guest experience that will be had when someone who books shows up to find out they can't check in.

Alex Mann Which I just might do, but hoping there's another way
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider Unfortunately you have to reach out to those listings. Screenshot and use as proof when you issue violations. Frequently check in on those units. Then report to Airbnb. Leave bad reviews on their listings.We had a guy who kept airbnbing. We usually caught it because his guests would come to the lobby. Made it easy on us cause it was his guests getting him caught. Then just get their details of their stay if they are willing to help you.
loader

Attachment
Alex Mann I just had one guest come to the lobby yesterday for keys, that made that bust easy. But most of them here are pretty slick. Can I leave a bad review if I haven't booked their listing?
loader
loader
Attachment
Guest Insider Alex Mann It’s been a while so it may have changed but if you had an account you could log in. Also reach out to Airbnb directly. Have your legal team prepare something or write something up. Cause when I called and was just like “Hey this is against our lease” they didn’t do anything.

Attachment
Emily Munson In my experience, Airbnb has done nothing to take the listings down. Even when explaining that we’re the landlord and it’s a lease violation. And you can’t leave a review on Airbnb unless you have an account. I personally didn’t want to go that route. We ended up terminating their lease early due to the lease violation. One of ours kept renting her apartment out right up until the writ was posted!

Sherry Tompkins We have seen an uptick in "corporate lease" inquiries. During your "ask the best questions" phase of leasing, it is so important to really drill down into what they are using the apartment for. We have been able to shut down 3 in the prospect phase. We had 1 in particular that stated it was for a Traveling nurse company. Everything seemed to be checking out but the company was too new. Our corporate office made the decision for the owner of the company to personally take responsibility for the lease. The owner had a melt down. As we pressed further he was also upset that I would not allow him to hang a lockbox for his "clients" on our drive gate. Then it all came out. We are also getting scammers applying on line and paying the fees. Then they cancel within the 72 hours and think we are going to refund the fees before the fees they paid clear the bank. We are in crazy times folks.

We have been at the same property since 2017. New manager arrived in 2019 and has been great. When she went on medical leave, the office staff and mgr from another property went to town trying to be cool. Sent me a lease violation that I'm using my apartment as a Airbnb. I had just arrived at my overnight hotel. Called the office and the leasing agent said nope I'm doing a Airbnb and if I don't remove the listing by tomorrow I'll he evicted. I said please send me proof as Ive never made a Airbnb listing. Apparently someone used a photo from Google maps of the property that I uploaded of the pool and my Google thumbnail photo was in it so they assumed it was me. Floor plan not even the same. But still she said she has proof and I'm being evicted if I don't delete it. Broke down crying in hotel room as I... Show more

Guest Insider We've worked with several properties that use smartphone access and their primary reason doing so was to stop airbnbs on units. Access only works on an approved number/device by property managers, so credentials can't be shared. (also helps flush out illegal tenants that aren't on the lease). It's not a quick fix, and is an investment, but can help solve issues like this so may be something to consider for future improvements.

Guest Insider I was a floating community director in Nashville and one of our properties was struggling big time with occupancy just because of a flooded class A market in the area. They opened it up to AirBnBs and regretted it big time! The guests would destroy the lobby and amentities area on the regular and when I was there helping, one of them busted a floor to ceiling glass window in the games room with a pool ball. Of course bc it was an Airbnb guest and no one knew which Apt they were staying in, no one was able to be held accountable. We screen our residents for a reason! Welcoming in an Airbnb next door to our residents leaves huge doors open for issues. I wouldn’t encourage them at all! It’s now like the Craigslist of traveling.
