Understanding Areas of a Pensacola Property Management

Rent was not paid by your industrial tenant. You’ve learned that things aren’t going well for them, and now you can see why. As a property manager, it is your responsibility to fix the problem as soon as possible. The occupant has effectively violated the lease when they fail to pay by the due date, and you have the right to evict them from the house. An eviction case, also known as an Unlawful Detainer proceeding, is a relatively simple legal process. The most important thing for property managers to understand is that each step in the process is vital and must be followed to the letter of the law. It is normal to have a real estate attorney represent all parties in a real estate transaction. The illegal detainer action could go reasonably smoothly if your property manager followed the rules, gave adequate notice, and has a clear file of all communications with the tenant and their business.Do you want to learn more?

If at all possible, the property manager should make every attempt to get the occupant to pay their rent and remain current on their lease. If it means waiting a few more days for payment, this may be the better option rather than filing a lawsuit. This move would be dictated by the company’s policy and best practises, so it will be preferable for both parties to settle before going to court.

A ‘three-day notice to pay or leave’ must be prepared and duly served on the tenant if payment is not forthcoming. This notice must be written in a certain legal format. A commercial owner, landlord, or property manager can choose between two forms of 3-day notices: 1) one that defines the exact amount of rent owed, and 2) one that calculates the amount of rent owed, which is normally the case when a tenant pays a percentage rent.
