NARPM Radio: Tenant Delay Tactics
What are typical delay tactics a tenant uses when served with an eviction notice? It doesn’t matter what they say (roommate left, lost job, cat died, etc.), but they have a right to file a response with the courts once an eviction notice is served. From the tenant’s “answer” filed in the court to bankruptcy, attorney Harry Heist discusses some of the ways that a tenant can delay an eviction. How do you avoid losing this battle? Make sure you take the right steps, know the law, be prepared, and always be sure to work with your attorney for advice as laws vary from state to state.

As a property manager or landlord, do you ever worry that you are not truly getting the full financial picture when screening tenant applications? Sometimes we get applications laden with smoke and mirrors that are easy to filter out. But other times, the app may look quite good, but in reality some of the aspects that would be helpful in making a decision aren't visible.
Wouldn't it be cool if you could verify a renter's income, payroll, past rent payments, NSF and overdrafts all in one, easy to pull, screening report? On this episode of NARPM Radio, Bob Preston of North County Property Group in California talks with Craig Schoen, CEO of Rentify about "open banking technology" and how property managers can use it to better screen prospective tenants. Rentify, a new NARPM Member Discount Program, is a company dedicated to helping property managers and landlords utilize a new approach to get that full picture of a tenant’s financial picture during the screening process.
