I have a tenant who has lived on my property for the last 9 years. He has an apt with a garage and has recently acquired another garage that I own for extra rent to store his items. He has now reached storage capacity and no longer can contain items in garages so things are filtering out on the property. We have month to month agreements. I have asked to remove the items and he does but they appear back again and says he is going to use it to build "something" but obviously has not. I don't want my property to begin to become his outside storage area. I would like to put in the month to month rental agreement something that states no belongings to be stored outside. I already have limitations on vehicles, recreational vehicles having limitations as driveway is large enough to fit 2 cars per apartment (I have 4 apts.). Anyone have advise on language so I can incorporate into his new agreement that I am about to give to him. Thanks for your help!
Just a comment and unfortunately not an answer to your question about language...
Have you inspected the inside of the property? Recently? The kind of behavior your seeing from this tenant would lead me to believe he may be a hoarder. Hoarding can do extreme damage to the inside of the property as well.
All lease agreement violations are managed by issuing a notice of violation. The notice of violation is followed by a notice of lease termination when not cured per the terms of the lease agreement. Try enforcing the terms and conditions contained within the four corners of the signed lease agreement. The excess "belongings" and "items" being stored outside of the premises would be considered debris or garbage, which is a violation of most municipal ordinances and the lease agreement.
