Dealing with Problem Residents

(August 25, 2020, 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. central)


​​​Somehow every property has one or two residents that are always walking-the-line of eviction. These few residents consume most of the manager’s time with investigations, inspections, and sending out notices. Everything they do seems to be either a violation of the lease or cause a problem with a neighbor. In this webinar, we will discuss some common problems when residents behave badly and give landlords some guidance on how to address the problems.

Our discussion will include:

• Refusal to Allow Access to the Apartment

• Unauthorized Occupants

• Unauthorized Pets

• Damage to the Property

• Bad Housekeeping

• Threats of Violence
