You are not alone, Bob & Dan. As a broker and a landlord myself, I see that all the time. I'm glad you guys have decided to not let that happen anymore. I'm glad you like your new LPA lease, Dan. Make sure you enforce your lease as much as you can. Let the tenants know when you read them the lease (before signing it) that the rent must be paid in full. Any deductions without permission will be a lease violation, and can result in penalty fees. Stay firm on this point and don't let the tenants mistake your niceness for weakness.

I TELL MY TENANTS TO CALL ME IF THEY WANT ANYTHING DONE TO THE PROPERTY. IF THEY DO ANY REPAIRS OR WORK ON THE HOUSE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION, I WILL NOT PAY. IF THEY WANT ANYTHING DONE BY ME THAT IS NOT AN EMERGENCY, THEY MUST REQUEST IT IN WRITING. THEN I'LL DECIDE IF I WANT TO DO IT FOR THEM OR WORK OUT A DEAL.

I've gotten much better at dealing with it. I tell them when they sign the lease that unauthorized deductions will not be tolerated. It happens to say it in the lease so I just read it to them and it sounds much more official. I reccommend not letting tenants lay out any expenses for repairs either even when its an approved repair. Because I don't like giving them the feeling that they have any part in dealing with contractors or repairmen tha I hired. Sometimes they'll take it on themselves to try and get other work out of the repairman and charge it to the same job that I ordered. George
