I normally do not like to call out tenants or other facilities, but I have been dealing with a serious drama case at our other facility. I get a call from our manager that is close to closing and there is a moving truck from another facility sitting in the complex open with a bunch of stuff in the truck and in a newly rented unit, with no one around.

We call the facility who the truck belongs to and the manager comes over and empties the truck into the unit and tells us that this is a tenant they have kicked out of their facility and they promised him use of the truck if he left. She said the previous facility this tenant was at before, the managers paid him to leave. So this facility dumped their problem on us. The guy left the truck and the belongings, because it was too hot.

We have given this tenant a Lease Termination Notice for using the facility as a residence. He had a bed set up in the unit that he used during business hours. He calls the police every day on our facility manager there because he has turned the power off to the building outlets and that the manager is harrasing him.

We know that the lease termination notice really has no teeth, so our back up plan is to keep raising his rent every few months. Who knows, maybe we can get $300 a month for a 10x15 :blink:

I have contacted a few facility managers in the area to let them know we are trying to get this tenant to move out. This will allow them to do the risk assesment on renting to this guy. Hopefully he will go to a big box facility....just $1 dollars moves you in :cheer:

Even with this, this job is fun, though our manager at the facility who has been on the job for about a month might not think so. But I do think it was really bad form for the facility to move their problem to us.

What a fun day by this tenant. He called the police again, this time it was about my car that is over there. I purchased a 1963 Ford Galaxie as a project. He claimed it was an eyesore and the officer said because there was a complaint we need to move it to where it can not be seen from the street. It does not matter that the facility is in an industry zone and the nearest residence is about 1/2 mile away.

I think we are going to move the car to in front of his unit.

:cheer:

An officer stopped by and warned us that this tenant might start vandalizing the property. As this is what he did at the previous facility. We might set it up to where he can only come in to get his stuff out with a police escort.

Things eventually worked out. He did stop paying as promised and we sold his unit at auction. We think it was purchased by his parole officer.

The facility that sent him to us, was purchased by Extra Space so new staff there.

One thing that is sad, you can tell at one time he was a very intelligent person and something happened that broke him.
