  • Don't block the doors!!

    I work in a multi-story climate and I can't wrap my head around it. I mean how many times do you have to tell your tenants not to block entry doors? i mean there are SIGNS posted telling you not to do it because they could stop working and compromise the security of the building and in the end YOUR BELONGINGS!! I don't get why grown folks just can't get it together.

            How, exactly, are they blocking the doors? Are they parking in front of them? Putting belongings in front of them?

            Some tenants, no matter how many times you say it, or how loudly, never get it. The world revolves around them and they are never in the wrong.

              More like putting items in the way of the sliding doors to prevent them from closing. Which in my case I

                  You can verbally warn them the following
                  "If I find you in violation of the properties rules, such as DO NOT ALLOW ANYTHING OF YOURS TO PROP OPEN THE FIRE SAFETY DOORS, your access will be denied to the office hours only. If this violation continues, we will have no alternative but to revoke your privileges and you will be asked to vacate your unit. Thank you and have a nice day"

                    We let them know all this at the time of rental. I have already handed out warnings and have at this time 7 customers having to go through the office. Ugh why are we babysitting grown children

                      Well it may be time to start charging them real $$ when you or a vendor has to repair those doors!
                      Start giving them a "violation fee" when they are in violation of the rules!!!

                        That's a good idea. I'll have to put that idea into my director's head.

                          Time to start cutting some tenants loose and sending them on their way.
                          Since you've already handed out warnings and these same tenants keep violating your policy, time for some lease terminations.
                          Start giving 30 day notices, and be very specific as to the reason why..."despite repeated warnings about the fire doors, you have continued to block them," or something similar. Don't take excuses, and don't change your mind and let them stay because they promise never to do it again.
                          They've not stopped the behavior after being told more than once, it will continue.

                            Either mail a letter or email it to them telling them they CANNOT under ANY circumstances use anything to prevent doors from closing. Tell them if you have to have repairs done as a result, you'll charge them as a way to recoup the expense incurred by their negligence and laziness. If that's too much for them, they can pound dirt.

                                Yeah, most tenants would be quite happy to switch out of a leaky unit! I would insist.. "sorry but we need to get in there".

                                I am not on twitter but someone that is should send the show a message about the Flex Fan Club at SST. LOL!
