How to be a Landlord in Hayward Dealing with Late Rent Payments

Deanna Hansen - Friday, February 15, 2013

Dealing with late rent payments is never fun, and I am always getting that question from owners: what happens if my tenants don’t pay their rent on time? The first thing you need to do is to keep up with your tenants’ payments. Don’t let them get too far behind. At Aapex Property Management, if a tenant has not paid by the sixth of the month, we get on the phone and begin our attempts to contact the tenant to find out what’s going on. If we cannot get a hold of the tenant, we will issue a 3 Day notice.

If you have tenants who have been really good and they have been living in your property for a year or two, and there happens to be one month that they cannot pay their rent on time because of a family emergency or a situation at work, you might want to be flexible. If they normally pay their rent on time but have a special circumstance one month, you might want to give them a little extra time to pay their rent. We don’t usually let tenants go past the 15th of the month, though. If they get too far behind, it will be impossible for them to be able to catch up.

So, give those great tenants a little bit of leeway if they need it for one time only. But, don’t let them get several months behind. I have had owners call me out of desperation and ask for help with a tenant who is behind on rent. When I ask how far behind the tenant is, the owner might say four or five months behind. If that’s the case, there is very little I can do except refer the owner to an attorney, who will issue a 3 Day notice and begin unlawful detainer proceedings.

Make sure you don’t How to be a Landlord in Hayward Dealing with Late Rent Payments let your tenants get too far behind. When they do go past a reasonable amount of time, issue the appropriate notices, specifically the 3 Day notice to pay rent or quit. If they do not pay their rent, act on that immediately, and move forward with the eviction process.

Hello, just wanted to inform you that we had a great time at Marina de Bolnuevo in July of this year. We flew into Alicante and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are superb, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The bars were great, with paella on the beach a must and managed a day on the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures. Will be returning there again in 2018. Thanks for reading Tony.
