If you are a landlord managing your own property and the tenant hasn’t paid rent, why would you want to contact a property manager? There are three reasons why you should get help, especially in the case where a tenant hasn’t paid rent. The three reasons are: experience, judgment and results.

The problem you have is that when a tenant doesn’t pay rent and you’re trying to manage it yourself, if you don’t have the experience, you’re liable to make a mistake. We don’t even recommend that you try to evict the tenant yourself because you’d rather get the rent if possible. When you’re trying to explain options to the tenants and you don’t have any experience in this, you might not have the experience to persuade them to pay the rent. When you bring a property manager into the picture, hopefully that professional can salvage the situation. If the situation goes to an eviction, you’ve got the judgment there to help and a professional who can get results.

Your Tenant has Not Paid the Rent? Why You Should Contact a South Florida Property ManagerYou wouldn’t want to handle something like an eviction on your own. Even with all of our experience, we would not evict someone ourselves. We would have our law firm do that, which is not as expensive as you would think. That’s only necessary if it goes to an eviction. Not all late pays automatically go to eviction. Our experience is that we wind up with very few evictions because our objective ultimately is to get the rent. That’s what you want to do at the end of the day – get your rent, avoid problems and hire a professional property manager.
