When a tenant first falls behind on their rental payment it can be a tough time. Especially if a tenant has normally been on time, it can stir concern about what is going on. Were they in an accident? Did they have a family emergency? Most landlords give their tenants the benefit of the doubt. A day or two late isn’t the end of the world until…it stretches much longer.
As your calls continue to get unanswered then you likely know it is an issue. Let’s face-it, no one wants to be late on a payment. No one really makes it a goal to miss a car payment or rental payment. The reality is that “it happens” but just because something is happening to your tenant doesn’t mean it has to drain money from your bank account.
