Signing a residential tenancy agreement means that you, the Landlord, and your tenant agreed to abide by specific responsibilities and obligations to ensure that both of you will benefit from the relationship. While this agreement may hold true and you as landlord expect that a steady flow of income and problem-free days will follow, the same do not provide an absolute guarantee.

 

At some point, you will encounter problematic tenants that will give you more hardships than benefits. In Edmonton, the Residential Tenancies Act applies which means you can hire residential eviction services to help you evict your troublesome tenant. If any of your tenants are guilty of committing any of the following violations then you have to consider going to an eviction process:

 

·      Inability to pay rent on time and in full;

·      Causing significant damage of property or allowing the property to be damaged;

·      Causing physical assault / threatening to physically assault you or another tenant;

·      Intervening with your rights or the rights of another tenant;

·      Carrying out illegal acts in your property; and

·      Refusal to move out upon the end of agreed tenancy

 

If you finally decide to take the eviction route, it is best to acquire professional residential eviction services to carry the burden of the entire process for you. An eviction process is time consuming, tedious and stressful especially if you don’t have knowledge and experience. Getting professional assistance will help ensure that your problem would be readily taken care of efficiently and effectively.

 

 

In Edmonton, there are several ways to evict a tenant; one of which is through the help of a commercial eviction service. To ensure that you can readily address your tenant problem you need to consider the following factors when choosing which option to take:

 

·      Effectiveness – the option you choose should achieve your end goal that is to get rid of your problem. Rather than being concerned with what is “easy” and “cheap” like sending eviction notices yourself; you should focus on effectiveness. Landlord-written eviction notices are commonly ignored because they are considered to be “toothless”

 

·      Efficiency – you need to make sure that your eviction-option would be carried out in the fastest manner possible so that you can get rid of your stress and move on immediately.

 

·      Convenience – undoubtedly, you have other things to take care of that is why you should consider an option that would be easy and most convenient for you.

 

The factors above can all be met if you are going to acquire professional commercial eviction services. Relying on professionals to carry out what they do best would prove to be the most effective, efficient, and convenient option for you.

Hiring the Right Property Manager Helps You Save Money

Property Managers

I’m often asked what to look for when picking a property manager. Its a great question, and I’ll try to cover a few important points. Although they can sometimes be expensive, they can also save you from many headaches that go along with being a landlord. I’m going to ask more questions then I’ll answer, but these are questions you’ll want to keep in mind when interviewing managers.

 

1 – Cost: Managers generally charge a monthly fee to watch and maintain your property. Those fees can range from as low as 5% or so, to upwards of 20%. Obviously, you should look for a company that charges a reasonable amount and provides valuable services.

2 – Communication: For me, communication with a manager is of the utmost importance. I need someone who uses email, and is responsive to both the telephone and email. If I don’t get a response back in a timely manner, it is time to walk. In addition, you need someone who can deal with you and your style. Some of us are needier then others. You want to let companies know up front where you stand, and make sure they’re willing to be flexible for you.

3 – Termination of your Agreement: In the event that your relationship does not work out, you want to know up front what exactly it will take to terminate your agreement. Is there a charge for breaking your contract? Penalties?

4 – Repairs and Maintenance: Does the company have their own maintenance crew, or do they contract out to a handyman? How much do they bill out at? Can they handle all kinds of repairs? What happens if they canít do something? Do they have other contractors that they work with?

In addition, you probably want to have a maximum that the company can spend without contacting you. Generally, I will allow my managers to do what they need to as long as it is for something under $100. I must confirm any expenses over that.

If you are a bit more of a control person, you can also request invoices/reciepts for expenses.

5 – Monthly Statements: Does the company send out monthly or quarterly statements. I wouldnít deal with anyone that does not provide monthly income/expense statements.

6 – Evictions: How does the company handle evictions? What are the costs to evict?

7 – Yard Work: How much do they bill yard work out at? Landscaping? Do they handle snow removal? Mow lawns? How much does each cost?

8 – Reserves: What kind of reserve does the company require? The reserves are used in case anything comes up. Most managers will require a certain amount.

9 – Accounting: When will the manager mail your check to you? Beginning of the month? State laws usually dictate accounting rules for managers, but you wo want to know all of this up front. Tenant Deposits: How do they handle deposits? Are they comingled, or simply put together with all other income for your account?

10 – Vacancies: Iíve actually interviewed companies that will charge you 1/2 a monthís rent to fill vacancies in your property. I quickly ended my interview with these people. There is no reason to pay this fee, since many managers donít need to charge it. You will need to fill your vacancies, so you will need some advertising done . . .

11 – Advertising: Where do they advertise properties? Are for rent signs put on the propertyís lawn? Do they advertise in the paper? Online? There are quite a few effective places to advertise properties for free, online. Do they use these? In addition, you want your property advertised effectively. Do they have the basic HTML skills to add images to their for rent ads online? This makes a huge difference, trust me.

12 – Section 8: Do they have experience dealing with section 8 properties / tenants? Do they know what is entailed with such properties?

I also like to know how many properties they manage, how many managers work at the company, what specific areas they focus on, how long they have been in the business, and other questions about their experience. This should be a good start to get you going.
