Tenants Disturbing Peace in the Neighborhood? Here's What To Do
October 10th, 2020
Are your tenants disturbing the peace in the neighborhood?
That's frustrating for a lot of different reasons.
First, it's often indicative of a bigger problem in the home. There could be excessive substance use. Not to mention that those tenants might end up getting the police called on them.
And it's also not good for your property the more parties your tenants are throwing, the more that they're shouting or playing loud music, the more stress that your property is taking.
As the landlord... what should you do?
Here's what we recommend...
Investigate The Problem The first thing you should do if you receive a noise complaint is to investigate the cause of the disruption. It might be something as simple as your tenants exercising at a weird time of day... or it might be something worse. You can't know unless you speak with your tenants and try to find out what's going on.
Speak With The Tenant When you speak with your tenants, be honest with them about the noise complaint. Ideally, they'll be honest with you about what might be causing it. But if they're not being honest or they aren't willing to cooperate, give them a few warnings and then move on to the next step.
Consider Eviction If things don't improve quickly, then it's time to consider evicting the tenants. You'll need to check your lease to see if there's something in your lease that talks about disturbing the peace. If there isn't, then you might consider contacting a local lawyer to better understand your options.
