    replied to Tenant Bidding on Unit
    So I found out the tenant was offered a deal, but she turned it down. They seem to have decide to just refuse her bid, if it comes to that. I'll post here after the sale when I find out what happened.

    So if the tenant isn't willing to make a deal to get her stuff before the sale, it sounds like it's ok to let her attend the sale, just not let her bid on her unit.

    No auctioneer, they do them themselves. I don't know how many other units are being sold that day. I wasn't sure if hers should go first or last, but last is a good idea. She might see they mean business and not be willing to take her chances. We did not talk about a vacate deal so I will call tomorrow...

    Tenant Bidding on Unit

    Thoughts on this would be appreciated. Our other location is having an auction on June 1 and the tenant of one of the units has informed them she will be attending and bidding on her unit...she owes just over $600. It's a public sale so she can't be barred from attending. As far as bidding on her unit,...

    replied to Hurricane Season
    I try to make sure larger pieces of loose debris, mainly tree branches and palm fronds, are picked up before any coming storm. I make sure doors are closed all on empty units and make note of anything outside in the RV parking area. Most of my tenants are good about making sure their belongings are...

    Thirty day notice to vacate along with a copy of what she signed that has the violation highlighted. That's how I do it.

    Your statutes tell you how to legally do it...that process protects you and your facility. Once all the steps have been completed and you are just waiting for the day of the sale, doing anything different is, in my opinion, not legal (since you are no longer following what statute states) and you are...

    replied to Extending Auction Dates
    My lien tenants aren't allowed to make partial payments and I won't pull their unit from a sale to allow them to pay after. Because they never do. You have a 90 day lien process, so the tenant has had plenty of time to pay you. And hasn't. Only with the threat of auction are they suddenly "I can...

    replied to Chronic Late/Partial Pays
    I've posted the same questions...is it worth it to just get rid of those tenants, or keep dealing with it? Like others have mentioned, stop taking partial payments. I used to as well but don't any more. It's just better to never do it than to do for one and not others. It's not helping the tenant either....

    replied to Late Fees, When and How Much
    Ok, since we're already talking about late fees, and I'm wanting to change mine to what my statutes say...how do I go about that? Do I need to send a notice to tenants that it's changing? Do I need to change my lease and have everyone sign the new one? Like I said in earlier post, I have 2 different...

  • Get that a lot. People want a cheap unit and, like you said, have no concept of size. When I tell someone I have a 5x10, they ask "how big is that" and I want to say "if you can't figure out 5 feet by 10 feet, I'm not renting to you"....

  • Yes, those scenarios are so much fun to deal with. I will say, though, that some people are really good at packing a unit. Just not 24' uhaul into a 5x5 good. Haha...

    replied to Late Fees, When and How Much
    It's whatever your statutes say. I lock out on the 5th day past due. My statutes say $20 or 20%, whichever is larger (which means I could charge $20 late fee on a $35 unit). I don't do it that way, but am considering changing it.
    I have 2 late fee systems here...1 for older tenants because of...

  • reply with "just because it's empty, doesn't mean it's available".

    Don't know what happened there but that posted before I was done. Haha

  • Similar situation, but with outside parking...people see an empty and they assume it's available. When I tell them no, they ALWAYS say "but it's an empty spot". And I ALWAYS...

  • This conversation ranks right up there with the following about unit sizes...
    Customer: I'm looking for a 10x20, do you have one?
    Me: No, I'm sorry, I don't have anything larger than 5x10 available right now.
    Customer: Ok, what about a 10x15?
    Me: No, 5x10 is my largest unit....

  • Asking 5 times won't change the answer...

    Just had a guy come in asking about available space for his boat/trailer. I told him I currently don't have anything, and no vacancies on the horizon.
    Him: nothing?
    Me: no, sorry. I have no outside space at all.
    Him: wow, you sure?
    Me: yes, I'm sure.
    Him: I rented here...

    replied to Trailer in Unit
    I posted yesterday, right under the original post, I left a message and the wife (the unit is in her name) called me right back and paid the past due over the phone. I had no problem doing that because, like I said, they've never been late before. She apologized and said she'd been after her husband...

    Ok, the tenant uses this generator thing sometimes for work. He's used it several times since he's rented here so it's not like he put it there to hide it. I knew they would be storing it because the wife asked at the time of rental if there would be a problem with that kind of thing in the unit. I...
