Well I guess that I was mistaken, or perhaps mistaken in renting to single mothers with credit problems due to divorce. The renters that I have in my trailer and in my 2 bedroom, 1 bath house still have not paid for January’s rent. Each of these tenants have been late every month, but have successfully come up with the rent and all late charges. But February is getting oh so close, and I need to do something about it. I have never had to evict before, so this is going to be a tough one for me.
I was able to get a phone conversation with the tenant in my trailer, and she said they are waiting on getting a tax refund check in, that was supposed to be in last Friday. I am fully aware of how people will lie and deceitfully use others to get what they want, but I am going to hold off on the first notice letter until tomorrow, as they said that the money should be there today. We will find out…
Regarding the single mother in the 2 bedroom, 1 bath house, I guess I am just going to have to submit notice to them. I am no longer able to reach them by telephone (I guess they had their number disconnected) and I have driven by a couple of times, and there has been no one home. I really hate the concept of eviction notices, but I guess it is a part of being a landlord.
But as a word of encouragement to all the other real estate investors out there, keep your head up during these times. At the very least, I will be able to keep the deposit on the house, and the location of it merits a quick turnaround, so maybe I can get someone in there pretty soon.
