4 Ways To Deal With A Frustrating Tenant In Portland

Are you a landlord with frustrating tenants? You’re not alone. Many landlords find out the hard way that they have frustrating tenants in one of their rental properties. In this article, we’re sharing 4 ways to deal with a frustrating tenant in Portland.  This continues our series on tenant problems and how some of our clients have dealt with them.

If you own a rental property, sooner or later you’re going to deal with a frustrating tenant in one of your properties. Maybe they trashed the property, maybe they never pay rent on time, maybe there are too many people living there, maybe they just call you for every little thing. No matter what the situation, tenants like that will eventually rent your property. Here are 4 ways to deal with a frustrating tenant in Portland when it happens to you.

Try to convince or negotiate with your tenants

You can try to reason with your tenants and explain that you provide a service so they need to pay and treat it properly. Perhaps your tenants don’t realize they are inconveniencing you or their neighbors. Maybe they’re not paying because they need a different payment schedule (such as weekly or bi-weekly instead of monthly).

Evict your tenants

Evicting tenants can be tricky and even legally complicated but it’s an option for you. In Oregon, laws favor tenants over landlords so you might have an uphill battle.  But in the long run it could be worth the effort to get them out and, instead, get someone into your property who is a better tenant.  You’ll need a good real estate attorney.  But having an attorney on your team is essential.

Explore other legal options

In some situations, you may be able to explore other legal options, from suing your tenants to getting their wages garnished. It all depends on the situation and the laws governing that situation. You don’t need to work with a high priced attorney.  In our experience a younger, hungry, sole proprietor specializing in real estate may be just the ticket.  At any rate, it’s worth the expense just to bad tenant out of your rental property.

Sell your property

If your tenants are a real hassle and causing you a lot of stress and expense, then you can always sell your property. In fact, a lot of rental property owners that sell to us do so because of the frustrations they face dealing with tenants. Depending on who you sell to, you may not even need to evict your tenant.  For example, if you sell to an investor we just buy and evict for you. For rental property owners with family living in the rental, this is an ideal solution.  But know that as part of our due diligence we will be asking for the rent records on the property.
