and will be a smooth transition. To answer the increase question first, i would honestly discuss it at first meeting…why put off the inevitable…most tenants expect an increase. something that has worked well for me in the past when acquiring a new park is to meet each tenant and give each unit a list of proposed rules. Ask them to look them over and if they see anything that can be modified or added to make the park more safe or efficient, to note it in red pencil and pass in with next rent check. have gotten some great ideas and it makes tenants feel “a part of” rather than “apart from”.
Without more info, i know this could seem kinda brash, but i am very careful about releasing pm until i know every nut , bolt, clean-out, switch, and schedule for myself. Been there and had to really struggle! Good luck!
