Tired of late payments? Click here for ways to them
Do you own apartments for rent in Ventura CA and are getting frustrated with dealing with late payments?
Late payments are a major problem for landlords. They impact cash flow and make it difficult for them to manage their businesses.
Thankfully, there are a variety of ways to reduce late payments and in this article, we will offer you several solutions that you can incorporate into your business.
Tip #1 – Create A Payment Reminder System
The first solution that you should consider incorporating to combat late payments is a payment reminder system that will alert your tenants at least 10 days, 5 days and on the day of rent being due to that way your tenants cannot say that they didn’t have fair warning about having to pay the rent.
There a variety of solutions that you can use to set up this system including online tools like AppFolio, that will give you the ability to accept payments online and set up payment reminders so that your tenants will be reminded in advance when their rent is due.
Tip #2 – Focus on Dealing with All Late Payers Individually
If you have one or more renters that are paying late, you should focus on each renter individually to find out what their specific reasons are for paying their rent late and what you can do to make the process of getting them to pay on time easier.
During the process of reaching out to your tenants who are paying their rent late, you should make a point to document your communication with them and include everything that was said including agreements on payment plans so that you know specifically when they will be paying their rent.
Tip #3 – Hire A Property Management Company
A property manager will collect the rent on time each month and deal with your tenants for you on your behalf so you won’t have to concern yourself with dealing with renters who pay late again.
