“You’re evicted. Get out. And here’s $250”.
Sounds weird, right? But I always feel like a tenant with a claw hammer can do FAR more than $250 worth of damage in the last 3 minutes in a home, and that while this is not satisfying emotionally for me, it’s far better financially. With a promise of $250 he has to decide which would give him more pleasure: some gas and motel money, or the satisfaction of destroying the home.
Of course, before I hand over the cash, I require my manager to walk through the home to ensure it’s empty and in good condition, and that the tenant has handed over the keys.
Any experience with this? Any other way of handling it? Thoughts?
