We all know at least one story about “that house” in the block that seems to be the source of all mess and trouble. Those troubles could range from a yard that is not appropriately maintained, pets running loosely or parties that are too boisterous. A rental property with wild residents easily becomes the object of frustration and resentment for everybody.
It’s an entirely different story once the house with the worst reputation is a rental home as it can become more than just a nuisance. A poorly managed rental home doesn’t only generate predicaments for the neighborhood but also places your investment and its future value at risk. Letting your Tillmans Corner tenants disregard taking care of the yard or sacrifice the outside of the house by not keeping household items or other objects in a place where they are kept hidden quickly makes an eyesore. Not only that, outside mess draws disease-bearing insects to multiply and even entice rodents or other pests.
Dogs are cute and all, but houses with incessantly barking dogs or too many animals that are let loose also poses a grave danger to neighbors and property owners as well. Incessant barking could potentially violate local noise ordinances and could land you and your resident in a lengthy legal suit. Residents who are owners of multiple animals and fail to keep them restrained or do not put any effort to clean up after them can create serious health hazards, and risk injury as a result of the animal’s bites and scratches. Again, such a situation could land you and your residents facing serious consequences.
Rental homes with many loud parties or those who have guests all the time cause problems for everyone, too. A constant stream of grievances regarding after-hours commotion, loud music, or cars filling the street can force local authorities to take action if you don’t put a stop to it yourself. Likewise, homes that are incredibly messy or have fallen victim to a hoarding situation will have a severe negative impact on your rental property as well as the property values of the surrounding homeowners.
