“So you say you haven’t gotten your rent check yet and the tenant won’t respond to your phone calls, emails, or texts?”  I ask.

“Nope.”  The Landlord says.

“Have you visited the property lately?” I ask.

“Not since they moved in….they’ve always paid rent on time and never caused any trouble,” the landlord confirms.

“I’d highly suggest you get over there today to see if they are even living there,” I suggest.

Take Away:  If you don’t have time to do your interim property audits, then you’ll need to plan time to do a massive clean out!
