I closed on a park a couple months ago & inherited several of the former owner’s scum tenants. One recently requested maintenance and my maintenance guy reported dried dog crap everywhere inside, mold and even moss growing inside the POH.
Now I realize the damage is already there, but I’m wondering what (other that far better tenant selection) can be done, knowing that the current tenant likely has absolutely $0 savings, but they are still paying rent. IE: If I forced them out, I would still have to repair the unit, but get no rent.
The area is lower income, so getting much greater deposits is likely not going to happen. How often, if at all, do some of you inspect, and what do you do if you find ongoing damage caused by the tenant. If you have repaired the damage & charged the tenant, what is your experience with them moving out in retaliation, vs paying for the repairs.
Thank you in advance
