  • It's getting weird

    I know I don't get all the weird phone calls, but I feel like I get all the weird phone calls.
    Guy calls and says he's calling on behalf of someone who is a friend of a tenant who is currently in South Carolina or Alabama, or something (his words, not mine). So "tenant" is unreachable and "friend" can't make his own phone calls. Sure, ok. He didn't offer a name and I didn't ask because it sounds like he's just fishing for info. Anyway, he says that there is "documentation that proves the unit is being paid for" inside the unit. Uh huh, sure. Because that's where you'd keep it. How can "the friend" get these documents? Well, for starters, neither of you are the tenant so no access unless you get what you need directly from the tenant, which is what I told him but not quite like that. He said again, "but we need those documents to show payment has been made, is there anything we can do"? I said, again, no, I will not let just any random person into a unit for any reason, regardless of the contents. End of story. He said thanks and hung up.
    Now, I have no idea who he is talking about but I do have my suspicions. If I am correct, that tenant paid for his first month then disappeared. I later found out he is sitting in jail in Texas and his unit went to auction where it didn't sell and was all trashed. Oddly, after the lien notice had been mailed out, I got a very similar phone call, but from a Texas phone number. That guy claimed to be an attorney (the name & phone number showed he was but doesn't mean it was actually him), and also sounded like he was fishing for info. While this current caller has a local phone number, the name does match to an insurance agent in, none other than, Texas. Interesting. No idea how there could have been any documentation inside THAT unit to prove payment, other than for the first month, when it was never accessed after March 21 and no one was paying. Like I said, I think someone is just fishing for info but if this particular tenant still thinks his stuff is here after all this time, he's crazy.


    Side note: if it is the tenant I'm thinking of, it's beginning to sound like there was something super important in that unit. That's two different people now that are asking about access. I saw nothing other than a bunch of clothing, household cleaning items and food.

    That is definitely way just weird. Maybe there was drugs or something...

          I think I have this solved, and it's not the tenant I thought it was. I got a phone call today from someone saying he's been paying on a current tenant's unit, she's currently in SC, or somewhere, and he has personal documents (birth certificate etc) in the unit that he wants to get out. He got very upset with me when I told him there was nothing I could do. "But it's my stuff", "but it's not your unit". When he asked what would happen if payments on the unit stopped I told him. That's when he said "so then I can get my stuff out of there". I told him no, that he would have to bid on the unit and be the winning bidder in order to get whatever belongs to him from the unit. He basically said there's no way he's doing that and hung up. I have no idea where the tenant is or if she intends to pay if this guy stops. There's been no access since mid-July, which is probably when she disappeared. No, I'm not going to call her because I'm not putting myself in the middle of whatever is going on between those two. This, right here, is why I wish people would stop sharing units.

              It's "As the Unit Turns" around here today. I have yet ANOTHER couple going through a breakup and she wants her stuff, but he doesn't want to give her access or meet her here to get it. I can't anymore with this!

                As the Unit Turns! LOL We currently have a married couple in the process of a divorce with all kinds of drama. "Did my husband come in yesterday?" "Did he have his girlfriend with him?" Etc., etc.

                  Both eBay and Amazon provide great deals for Trachte door hasps. The most challenging part about Trachte hasps is the installation difficulty. I wonder if a 24/7 locksmith nw6 service would be able to install it. I think there are some qualified locksmith specialists in safe fields able to open them,...

                  Reply to Replacing Human Managers - VENT
                  by helenatim
                  I can fully appreciate a good vent when it's needed!! And I can understand how the inept management of some facilities could be pretty annoying and give the whole industry a black eye, but I will tell you from experience that you can run these businesses without an on-site manager if you want. ...
