Four andhalf.com - Wednesday, October 05, 2016

 

Evicting a tenant is not always easy, and most landlords don’t even like to think about it. It can be an exhausting process, and it’s also a bit emotional for many property owners. Evictions take a lot of time and they cost you money. Your time and resources are valuable, so when you hire a professional property management company, make sure they can help you with this if it becomes necessary.

Tenant Screening

There are a number of reasons to evict a tenant, and most landlords will do so because of nonpayment of rent. You can also evict your tenants when they aren’t following the terms of the lease. Putting an excellent tenant in place is a good way to avoid eviction, but that’s often easier said than done. Just make sure you have screened all of your applicants thoroughly so you have a good chance of getting a renter who will pay on time and fulfill the requirements of the lease.

Following Local Eviction Procedures

Counties and cities all have difference fees and processes for eviction. You’ll have to be careful about following the proper court procedures when you serve notices and file paperwork. You want to make sure you do everything correctly, otherwise the eviction will take longer and probably be more expensive.

Getting Professional Help

As professional property managers in St. Paul, we can help facilitate a successful eviction that does not cause any additional stress or expenses for you. If it gets to the point that you need to remove your current tenants, we can help. Sometimes, you will need an attorney to represent you in court as well. Professionals can help make the entire process a smooth one. You want to make sure you understand the fees and the steps that are required, and you want to discuss what you are responsible for, and what the tenant will be held responsible for.
