Do you have a difficult tenant? Are you trying to schedule maintenance appointments, showings, and more with no luck?
Trust me, I’m right there with you! There are some times that I know I earned my pay in stress management. As hard as this sounds, and trust me I know how crazy it is to leave emotions out of the equation, but I have had a lot of luck by quoting the lease and keeping it simple.
Here is a great example of how to keep it simple when writing to a difficult tenant.
Writing to a Difficult Tenant:
Please accept this as the 24 hours notice required by the lease. I will be showing the house at x time and date. Please let me know if you will be there or if I should use my key to let myself in.
The Always Learning Landlord
That being said you will have that tenant that tests you. Rise to the occasion by using your “powerful lease” and leave it at that! In this case the less is said the better, and keep it strictly business, no matter HOW hard you want to “put them straight”.
