How to Handle a Frustrating Tenant In Florida

Do you own a rental property in Miami? Are you struggling with troublesome tenants? You’re not alone! Many landlords soon come to realize that they have frustrating or difficult tenants in one of their properties. 

If you’re a landlord and this hasn’t happened to you yet, consider yourself lucky. Because sooner or later, you’re going to deal with a frustrating tenant that seems to get a kick out of messing you around. Maybe they trashed the property, perhaps they never paid the rent on time, or they’re renting out a room behind your back, or maybe they just call you for every little thing. But…

Dealing With Nuisance Tenants Can Be A Landlord’s Nightmare

No matter where you are or how upstanding and good a landlord you try to be, at some point, you’ll end up with tenants matching the above description in one of your properties. That’s why we’ve put this short article together to tell you about four ways to deal with unpleasant and annoying tenants in Miami.

#1 Try to convince or negotiate with your tenants.

By this point, you might feel like you’re hitting your head against a brick wall. But, you could try at first to politely reason with your tenants and explain that you provide a service that they need to look after and pay for. You never know, they might have an honest financial issue or personal problem that’s affecting them. And they might not even realize they’re inconveniencing you. 

#2 Evict your tenants.

When negotiations don’t work out, you can always evict your tenants. But bear in mind that evicting tenants can be tricky and legally complicated. Laws often favor tenants over landlords. So, it might be a long and tedious legal battle. But in the long run, it could be worth it, especially if your tenants haven’t been paying the rent or bills for months, and it’s clear that they never plan to. Consider your options and then decide whether it’s worth getting them out and finding new tenants to replace them.

#3 Explore other legal options.

In some situations, you may be able to explore other legal options, from suing your tenants to getting their wages garnished. This may sound extreme, but if they’ve not made a single monthly payment since moving in and you know they work full-time and enjoy other expensive luxuries, then it’s worth taking a look at all your available options. Of course, you may need to work with a costly attorney to do this, but if it gets a bad tenant out and a good, trustworthy tenant in, it’s worth it!

#4 Sell your Florida House.

If your tenants are a real hassle and cause you more stress and anxiety by the day, you could always consider selling your Florida house.

A common reason landlords sell rental properties is due to the frustration and pain of dealing with difficult tenants.

Depending on who you sell to, you may not even need to evict your tenant first. Some home buyers, us at Sunshine State Buyers included, will buy your property and evict for you, saving you the hassle and money involved in a prolonged and painful eviction process.

For rental property owners struggling with a relative living in their property whose not paying, this is an ideal solution. Let your cousin, brother, or whoever know that you need to sell the property. Give them a months’ notice at least, and then the problem will no longer be yours to deal with.
