Nobody likes having someone in the neighborhood with a reputation of being “that house.” The one with that reputation, everybody seems to have a problem with, where most complaints stem from because of all the chaos and distress that they make. It’s either a disordered yard, noisy animals, or loud gatherings, a rental property with wild residents is usually the object of frustration and resentment for the whole neighborhood.
In the event that the worst house on the block is a rental home, it can possibly become more than just a nuisance. A poorly managed rental home not only is the source of problems for everybody but also places your investment and its future value at risk. It’s never a good idea to let your Bowling Green tenants ignore the condition of the yard, or disregard the fact that they are trashing the outside of the home with unnecessary items that could easily be stored somewhere as an outside mess is very attractive to disease-carrying insects to breed and may bring rodents or other pests.
Homes with incessantly barking dogs or too many animals roaming freely around the area also poses a significant risk to neighbors and property owners alike. The nonstop barking may violate local noise ordinances and could land you and your resident in legal woes. Residents who own too many animals, neglect to restrain them, and don’t clean up after their mess can create serious health hazards as well as risk injury through bites and scratches. If your resident’s pet attacks a neighbor, both you and your tenant can find yourself looking at some serious consequences.
Rental homes with regular loud parties or too many guests cause difficulties for everyone, also. A steady stream of protests about after-hours noise, loud music, or cars filling the street can provoke local authorities to take action if you don’t put an end to it yourself. Similarly, homes that are awfully dirty or have fallen victim to a hoarding situation will have a severe negative impact on your rental property as well as the property values of the surrounding homeowners.
