Is an Eviction Protection Plan Right For You?
You need some offensive linemen on your team. As in any business, things do not always go as planned with property management. Fort Worth homeowners who rent out their property understand the risk involved. If tenants fail to follow the terms in the rental agreement such as breaking noise ordinances, disregarding pet or long-term visitor policies, or missing rental payments one too many times, then it’s time to ask them to leave. This is when you get hit with a time-consuming and costly evictions process.
How Much do Evictions Cost?
Adding up all the potential costs such as lost rent, lawyer fees, court filing and administrative fees, Sheriff fees, locksmith payment, repairs or junk removal, and cleaning fees, it may add up to $5,000 per eviction.
Why Should I Plan on Evictions?
While this is something we all hope never happens, the reality is that sometimes it does. Keeping our fingers crossed and looking the other way won’t help. A contingency plan will help, however. Property managers, Fort Worth landlords, and even tenants should all know the rules, costs, and the process should an eviction become necessary.
