    Raising the rent is a good motivator to make them leave if they've proven they won't listen and you don't want to deal with eviction. Our rental agreement states we can limit access hours to ensure customer safety and that the rules are followed. I had a customer that didn't want to follow the rules and tried living in a unit before we installed the gates so I told him his choices were leave, or I overlock his unit and he only gets to access it when I am in the office. He was gone within a week. Unfortunately he also left "presents" all over the property.

      He was "entitled" to leave those presents because he can do no wrong and you are the bad guy as the authority. Waste of your time and effort.

        Love all the replies. To clarify a few points it is in the contract that conducting any type of business, " to include but not limited to garage type sales " is strictly forbidden. Additionally there are other terms such as all property must be maintained fully within the leased unit and no vehicles can be parked other than to load and unload. And the" words " we had were not of a friendly nature. It became nasty when she refused to stop the sale. So I took one of the suggestions and raised her rent. So my next question is how do you guys handle a tenant that refuses to vacate? I realize the answer will vary depending on each state's laws. But generally speaking if you give them proper notice to vacate and they ignore you am I then going to have to go to court like a residential eviction? Again love the replies.

          You're probably going to have to go to court to get her evicted. My 30-day notice states that if they aren't out by the date/time stated in the notice, I can have them trespassed. Also states anything left in the unit is disposed of. So far, no one has tested that.

            If she broke the rules then she broke the rules and she should be evicted. There are rules that you can overlook and those that you shouldn't. That was a biggie especially after she was asked/told to stop.

            I don't understand about raising the rate. If you doubled her rent would that be considered price gouging? Price gouging is a pejorative term referring to when a seller spikes the prices of goods, services or commodities to a level much higher than is considered reasonable or fair, and is considered exploitative, potentially to an unethical extent.

            What if she pays double would that entitle her to have another sale? When she comes in she will be waiving the letter saying " you are just doing this to be vindictive, you can't double my rent ". I would just evict her.

              Curious. What rules can be overlooked?

                Leaving a bag of old dirty clothes or food outside the hallway instead of taking it with them to discard at their place. Smoking (warning - don't do it again). Must be out by 10pm - they are there 10:10pm. After moving in forgot to put the lock on the unit & then left the facility.

                Little things like that. They are rules but nothing to evict, in my opinion.

                  Agreed about the eviction aspect but I was just curious why. Thanks. Smoking would be the big no no though. We hear all the time about facilities catching fire because of breaking smoking rules.

                    If you have something in your lease that states either you (management) or the tenant can terminate the lease for any reason, give him a 30-day notice to vacate. He probably won't vacate, in which case you will need to evict at that point, and he will probably still challenge it in court (because he...

                    Seek advice of lawyer in this matter. I believe you should evict him, however an attorney should handle every aspect of it.
