We all know at least one traumatizing story about “that house” in the block that seems to be the source of all mess and trouble. They usually have a yard that is badly maintained, animals that are not tended to, and unruly parties. A rental property with wild residents can easily become the object of frustration and resentment for the entire neighborhood.
It’s an entirely different story if the worst house on the block is a rental home because it’s no longer just a simple nuisance. A poorly managed rental home doesn’t only generate predicaments for the neighborhood but also places your investment and its future value at risk. It’s never a good idea to let your Warwick tenants ignore the condition of the yard, or disregard the fact that they are trashing the outside of the home with unnecessary items that could easily be stored away. Also, an outside mess also brings in disease-carrying insects that multiply and possibly entice rodents or other pests.
Houses with incessantly barking dogs or too many animals that are let loose can pose as a substantial danger to neighbors and property owners as well. Continuous barking may violate local noise ordinances and may end up with you and your resident facing legal action. Residents who own too many pets, neglect to have their animals bound, or don’t pick up after them can generate serious health hazards, as well as risk injury through bites and scratches. If your resident’s pet bites or scratches a neighbor, both you and your tenant can find yourself facing some serious consequences.
Rental homes with regular loud parties or too many guests cause difficulties for everyone, also. A steady stream of protests about after-hours noise, loud music, or cars filling the street can provoke local authorities to take action if you don’t put an end to it yourself. Likewise, homes that are incredibly messy or have fallen victim to a hoarding situation will have a severe negative impact on your rental property as well as the property values of the surrounding homeowners.
