What Would YOU Do? Rental Housing Problem Solving

We will spend time discussing Expo 2022 and hear from some of our vendor partners.

See our main topic below:

What Would YOU Do?   Rental Housing Problem-Solving

Have you ever had one of those rental or tenant situations that absolutely stumped you or when you really weren’t sure what the best response would be or that no matter what you try to do in resolving the matter, it just doesn’t go away?

Then, this session is for you!  

Have you ever rented to an applicant that met all of your criteria and seemed like the perfect fit only to discover you have rented to the tenant from hell?

Then, this session is for you!

Have you ever had that tenant that no matter what you do, it’s not enough, it doesn’t meet the tenant’s needs or the tenant continuously contacts you with issues that are seemingly minor but are magnified so there’s much drama?

Then, this session is for you!

We will spend the meeting time with members sharing their solution to some common issues that arise in managing rental housing.  The issue can be any problem that has potentially affected members and where there may be more than one solution.  Members may submit written questions to Kim Jarnagin, through October 13 and we will brainstorm on the options available in attempting to help that member with a solution for the dilemma that another member may be struggling with or who simply wants suggestions for alternate solutions in the event the issues again arises because sometimes there is more than one possible solution to the problem.  Member brainstorming is powerful because it stimulates thoughtful musings about problems that commonly arise in rental situations and it arms all members to consider the best option in resolving perplexing and vexing issues that confront housing providers.  

And to get started, here is a situation for membership consideration:

You’ve just finished updating a property that was built in the early 1900’s but has been a successful rental previously.  The property has passed a city inspection and is ready for occupancy and you have a qualified applicant.  This applicant has been anxiously awaiting completion of the inspection so they can move in.  However, once in, the complaints about condition begin:  a window is broken that was fine yesterday, the sink with a garbage disposal doesn’t drain properly, the doors in the bedroom don’t latch properly, a door that is not necessary but was installed between the kitchen and a back entrance has been removed, the upper floor doesn’t cool down even though the home has central a/c, and on and on.  In your haste to rent the property (or because this applicant insisted on moving in quickly) so you failed to complete the lease but plan to do so within a month of the tenant moving in so you have a month to month rental initially.  Considering that you have what appears to be at the very least a dissatisfied tenant but who increasingly appears to be a chronic complainer, what do you do to resolve the matter?
