How to Deal with Difficult Tenants and Their Complaints


Webinar Description

As a landlord or property manager, it might feel like your tenants are always complaining about something. Yes, you’re legally obligated to abide by certain tenant rights laws, but you still have the opportunity to resolve tenant complaints peacefully and diplomatically. To start, let’s cover what renters care about when it comes to their home or apartment. Along with the top-requested amenities renters want, they also don’t want to deal with the following:

  • Noisy Neighbors
  • Pests
  • Appliance/Maintenance Issues
  • Safety Concerns
  • Ask yourself if this is the type of person who raises unreasonable complaints all the time, or has this person historically been reasonable in his or her requests? 
  • If the latter’s the case, you might want to try working with the person to solve the problem for the sake of maintaining the relationship. 
  • One “unreasonable” request, if isolated, isn’t a big deal in the long run. But if this is part of a pattern of unreasonable complaints, you’ll want to find an alternative resolution.

Webinar Objectives:

Terrible tenants can make your job as a landlord tough. Some of them pay rent late every month, while others are careless and damage your property. Most property owners face the hassle of dealing with difficult tenants at some point, and it is not easy. 

Applicant screening is excellent for weeding out many tenants that may become an issue down the road. However, it does not account for changes in a tenant’s financial circumstances, emotional state, or personal situations.
