  2. Everyone, Please do at least 1 email, but we need three - Mayor, House, and Senate Email your stories / Email how tenants will hurt landlords when no evictions are allowed / Email everyone you can - TODAY. I know it is confusing what is happening at the Senate and House. Basically, both sides are proposing a plan (HB 315 & SB 242) and trying to get something agreed upon quickly. Who ever's plan gets approved first - wins. However, the courts have made their decision that they will not even listen to any FED (eviction) cases for a long while. Yesterday, the Senate was asking many questions about how it impacted landlords and what rights Senate has. The House made comments such as "no evictions until November 15". It has been interesting sitting there for hours to listening to bankers, lawyers, utility companies, associations, and etc. Then emailing and engaging whoever I can to get landlord voices heard. At this time, only 2 people are attending calls that represent landlords. Your help is very much needed. In short, those that have rentals, get it and trying to find a middle ground. Those that don't have rentals, tend to be VERY tenant-friendly. Items the representatives are forgetting or struggling with - Credit Impacts / Fee Impacts / Balances increasing & due later / Collection challenges / What is Financial Hardship / What is an affidavit by a tenant / etc..... List of emails: Mayor of Wasilla: https://www.cityofwasilla.com/departments.../mayor-s-office Anchorage Mayor: http://www.muni.org/Departments/Mayor/Pages/Contactus.aspx House: http://akleg.gov/house.php Senate: https://akleg.gov/senate.php Thanks for your time.
  3. As soon as you pay service providing vendors $600.00, you are required by tax law to give the vendor a Form 1099-MISC or Form 1099-NEC. See IRS Publication “Instructions” for 2020. BEFORE making a first payment to a service providing vendor, get their Form W-9 Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification from them. This provides the information that’s reported on Form 1099.

  5. Aside from asking my tenant to please close windows when they are not in the unit in the winter months what can I do? The heat in our building is natural gas and we (landlords) pay it. we have seen a increase in our bill due to the tenant leaving the thermostat up and windows open. We have asked repeatedly for them to close their windows, not just one window but multiple windows. Even in the weeks when we had negative temps in Jan. the windows were left open over night and throughout the day. As a landlord what other options do I have?

  9. Hello all, due to the recommendations made by the CDC to practice social distancing, we have decided to take the direction of virtual delivery on this class. Stay tuned for an invitation in the next few days to view/listen in by phone or PC. We will NOT be meeting at The Megan Room this month.
  10. According to episode 4 of the podcast, a property owner should keep at least 26 documents for just 1 tenant. What are those 26 documents? Is there a place I can learn more about that?
  11. You don’t have to wait for them to find a place to move to before you give the eviction notice. It sounds like they have broken the lease multiple times, so you could send them a 30 day notice without issues, even if they are on a long-term lease.
  12. Did you know - 80% of our tenants pay online? Real Property Management has a management package where we can process your rents for you (online, dropbox, in-person)? Call 290.2022

  14. Hey All, I’m in need of a local Anchorage area CPA. I have just a few rentals and do flips on the side. I’m looking for someone who would be a good fit for my current setup. Let me know if you have any good recommendations. Thanks!
  15. Posted on Facebook Christy Estrada Conversation Starter · 2 hrs So I got a rental reference request for my current tenants. No notice is given, but I want them out sooooo bad was just waiting for nicer weather so I could clean out unit. They are nasty.hoaders and having issues with them from the start. Parking drama, dog poop drama, paying on time, etc... Just all around problem tenants. I filled out the form honestly, but I am torn on hitting send. If I am honest they probably will not rent to them. I need them out ugh... I hate this. I don't wish these tenants on anyone.
  16. Posted on Facebook Crystal Menice is looking for recommendations. January 17 at 4:07 PM Does anyone have a recommendation for a good plumber in Anchorage?
  17. Posted on Facebook Ruth Meyer McClain @Ruth McClain January 25 at 3:51 PM Any Landlords or managers in the Wasilla area have a recommendation on who/how to have water well tested for minerals,,etc. thanks. I think there are some do it yourself labs etc or is it best just to hire a well water co to come do it.
  18. Post from Facebook Kim Mattison January 23 at 9:05 PM In y'alls opinion. Does not having a dishwasher make a big difference in rental value and quality of renter?
  19. Post from the Facebook forum: Audrey Scott 22 hrs What is the dollar limit that I have to 1099 a contractor??
  20. Posting from the facebook group: Crystal Menice Does anyone have a recommendation for a good plumber in Anchorage?
  21. Posting from the facebook group: Ashley wilson Are we legally able to serve a notice to quit to a tenant due to continued confrontations with and her inability to control her 3 and a half year old? He walks on the tops of the washers and dryers, we’ve found popcorn kernels in multiple washers, he’s pulled dryers off of their vents causing us to have to refund money to other tenants as well as repair them. Yesterday I found his boot prints on all six dryers. We need her out!!!!

    Tenant's Paint job

    Behr Marquee works amazing. If it doesn't cover it then they will replace the paint for free because they guarantee one coat covered. They have their reps at Home depot regularly to help. I always use it.
  23. A handyman in town (TPS) posted this picture of a paint job done by a tenant. They found the painted wall when they were doing the eviction walkthrough. Tenant did have some paint skills, but bet it is a bugger to paint over! Sherwin Williams did a training class and they said they had a special paint to cover the bold colors. I would try that.
  24. @Victor Peluso Says Just go in person and visit and introduce yourself to make sure they know who the rent check goes to. If you're former property managers are shady they might try continuing to collect the rent.
  25. @Greg VT I also need coffee before I say to much
  26. Hmm...interesting. If it was something I'd be dealing with, and the management company was local to me (or even, come to think of it, in another state), I'd be making a very personal visit to their office for a very personal discussion on this. More than likely that would be followed up with a certified letter explaining some things to them, possibly followed up by an interesting letter from my lawyer. I suppose there is a possibility that your tenant has signed some paperwork with the management company, and within that paperwork is some clause that they will not disclose personal information to anyone. In any case, main thing is you need to notify the management company of the termination of your relationship with them. If they're a shady operation, do it in writing and in some kind of legal notification - like a certified letter. If it's a serious issue with them, have your lawyer send them a letter terminating your business relationship. Then again, I haven't had enough coffee this morning, I'm not a legal expert, and my opinions are worth what you paid for them, LOL. Good luck with this, I'd be interested in hearing the outcome. Not to mention who the management company is.
