We’ve all heard about “that house,” the one in every neighborhood that cultivates an unbroken ritual of mayhem and disturbance. Whether it’s a poorly maintained yard, pets running wild, or loud celebrations, a rental property with wild residents hastily develops into the object of frustration and resentment for the whole neighborhood.
If the most awful house on the street is a rental household, it quickly becomes more than just a nuisance. A poorly managed rental home not only creates real issues for the neighborhood, but it can also place your investment and its future value at risk. Allowing your Wellington tenants to neglect yard maintenance or leave the home’s exterior covered with household items or other objects can create an eye real quick. Even worse, these outside messes can invite disease-carrying insects to breed and might attract rodents or other pests.
Homes with incessantly barking dogs or too many animals running looses can pose a serious threat to neighbors and property managers alike. Constant barking may violate the noise ordinances in your area and could result in legal action not only against your tenant but also yourself. Tenants who have several pets, fail to keep them restrained, or don’t clean up after them can create serious health hazards as well as risk injuries through bites and scratches. If your tenant’s animal bites a neighbor, both you and your tenant can find yourself faced with some serious consequences.
Homes with loud parties or too many visitors can create problems for everyone, too. A regular stream of complaints regarding after hour noise, loud music, or cars crowding the road can motivate local enforcers to take action if you don’t put a stop to it yourself. Similarly, homes that are extremely dirty or become a casualty to a hoarding situation will have a severe negative impact on your rental property as well as the property values of the surrounding homeowners.
