While doing a parking lot structure repair at a complex, an owner of one of the units, upset that the repairs were not done on their timeline or with their contractor of choice, and refused to move their vehicle until the exact moment on the notice. Even though, everyone else in the building had moved their cars/property, and the workers had begun their work just feet from the parked car. The owner preceeded to load/unload from his parked car seemingly oblivious to the inconvenience that was being caused to everyone around them. For the entire half hour prior to moving their car, while they moved..

Apparently, the tenants were flushing baby wipes and diapers and had blocked the pipes months ago. Afraid they would get in trouble they NEVER reported the problem to the landlord. When the smell got too bad, they simply left..
Everyone knows how important insurance is, especially if you don’t have the right kind of insurance. Here are some types of insurance that every landlord should consider. (Vision Real Estate is not an insurance company and these are only recommendations. Please speak with a licensed insurance agent for what is right for you and your properties) Flood Insurance: Some people assume that water damage is covered under your home owners policy.

The tenant was being evicted for non payment of rent and asked the Judge if he could throw himself upon the mercy of the court. The Judge responded that there is no mercy in his courtroom and he must follow the law. The Judge asked the tenant why he had not paid his rent. The tenant informed the Judge that he was leaving his apartment with sufficient cash to more than pay his rent and suddenly realized three hours later that he was at a Casino and not the rental office. He indicated to the Judge that at that point he had lost more than..
By Paul Smith: Digested from the Utah Apartment Association Recently a member called us about doing income and employment verifications. He was wondering if it was appropriate to ask for checks stubs. He was concerned about violating fair housing or getting into legal jeopardy. His questions about best practice and liability prompted us to write this article to answer the question for all 6,000 readers of the Landlord Times. Poor or unemployed people are not a protected class So it is perfectly legal to discriminate against them! When you say it like that it sounds mean. But it isn’t. It would be a poor..

What kind of tenant are you trying to attract? Do you want a tenant that will care for your property, and will hold it..
