On the surface rent collection sounds easy. Your tenant mails or turns in a check to you once a month, you deposit the check, the check clears, and you’re good until the next month. Except, as almost every landlord learns eventually, it isn’t quite that easy. Checks bounce, tenants are late or don’t pay, and eventually you find yourself with legal problems and an eviction. This process can feel like you are underwater if you are unfamiliar with it. That is where Specialized RPM’s property management Arlington experts can help.
Specialized RPM on Rent Collection Processes
One of the most important things you can do to protect yourself and your tenants is have clear and upfront communication about your rent collection processes. Set expectations with your tenants when they sign the lease about what the rent collection process will be and what will happen if they fail to pay. Making it easy for your tenants by offering incentives and electronic payment options will help ensure rent is paid on time. If an eviction becomes necessary be sure you are up to date on the process and move as quickly as possible. Many facets of evictions are time sensitive and expensive, so you should consider partnering with an experienced Arlington rental property management company to keep things moving.
