  1. Lynn, What do you feel caused the tenants to want to cause such damage to your property?
  2. What was the condition of the bathroom at initial occupancy and walkthrough inspection? What was condition of the bathroom at the last maintenance check/inspection?
  3. If the criminal history is the only thing giving you pause then it seems you can consider whether he has been law abiding for the last 20 years and qualifies based on your other criteria for renting them your property.
  4. I had to research what Visquin is. What do you think was occurring in that property that they had to cover everything in plastic?
  5. I wonder what their angle is in inquiring as to whether you are a private landlord or an established business entity? My Spidey sense goes off in this being a professional renter seeking their next property owner to take advantage of. What other background checks have you ran on these prospects? Have they filled out an application? If so, do they meet your criteria as renters?
  6. Hire Kassandra and her team to get them tenants on a schedule paying rent. Vic
  7. I am glad this topic came up as I am in a similar situation in not planning to renew the lease with my current tenant of the owner occupied duplex I just purchased. I am currently updating my side with plans to update the renter side when the tenant's lease ends. So I looked up some things and here is what I found. AS 34.03.290(b) The landlord or the tenant may terminate a month to month tenancy by a written notice given to the other at least 30 days before the rental due date specified in the notice. http://www.akleg.gov/basis/statutes.asp#34.03 Found this in PUB-30 Published by the Alaska Court System: A 30-day written notice is required when the landlord wishes to terminate a month-to-month tenancy for general reasons.This notice must be delivered 30 days before the rental due date specified in the notice as the termination date. Notices of Termination of Tenancy (also called “Notices to Quit”) from the landlord must be served on the tenant by: - delivering the notice in person to the tenant or occupant; - leaving the notice at the dwelling when the tenant is absent from the premises; or - sending the notice by registered or certified mail It appears text is not a viable means of communicating your intent to not renew the lease. I agree with Matt Miller that more notice than 30 days is probably better to reduce stress in planning for a move. I don't think you should worry about your tenants retaliating by damaging your rental or not paying rent until it happens. Then there would be other legal avenues to pursue if that happens. In my case I may offer full refund of the deposit and $500 if they are willing to leave sooner than lease end date and there are is no major damage left behind. I am planning to rehab to dirty carpets and dented bedroom doors are not an issue with me. Vic
  8. Hi All, I'm looking at a property built in 1973 and have concerns of possible use of asbestos materials used in its construction. Anyone here have any experience with having a home tested for asbestos? If so, what was the experience for testing and removal or mitigation (costs, vendors used)? Are there laws in such material being declared during the sale of a property? Thanks Victor
