It’s no surprise that we have all heard about “that house.” The one house in every neighborhood that is usually the source of all mess and trouble. Whether it involves a poorly maintained yard, animals that would run around freely, or wild parties, a rental property with wild residents can quickly become the target and object of frustration and resentment for the entire neighborhood.
In the event that the worst house on the block is a rental home, it can rapidly become more than just a nuisance. A poorly managed rental home is a source of all sorts of dilemmas for the neighborhood, and it also places your investment and its future value at risk. When you let your Richboro tenants disregard taking care of the yard or litter the outside of the house by not keeping household items or other objects in its proper place, you are allowing your property to become an eyesore to the neighborhood. On top of all that, the outside mess would also attract disease-carrying insects and rodents or other pests.
Households with incessantly barking dogs or too many animals running loose also present a huge risk to neighbors and property owners alike. Persistent barking may violate local noise ordinances and end in legal action against you and your resident. Residents who own too many animals, fail to secure their animals, or don’t clean up after them can generate serious health hazards as well as risk injury through bites and scratches. Again, such a situation as a resident’s pet biting a neighbor could land you and your tenant into deep trouble and you would be 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.
