I could, and have every right to do so, but there are battles I don’t have the energy for. The increase over 6 months is $600. It’s not worth the battle. She leaving and I couldn’t be happier.
In the meantime, I need to show my property. I have a friend in CA who’s hooked in with pre-paid legal and he’s going to make some calls for me today.
Basically, I can give her a three day notice if she’s insistent on digging in her heals…again; I just want everyone to act like grownups. She had the first right of refusal, said she couldn’t afford the $100 dollar increase.
I have done nothing with her rent for almost three years, and am frankly annoyed at myself for dropping the ball on the market. I’ve lost thousands over three years in lost rent.
She saw me as an individual owner rather than me owning this place for business.
I understand from people looking, in fact the lady whom wants my place that her rent is being increased from 2250 to 2450, and if she doesn’t sign the lease or leave, the rent is 5K per mo. This is one of the large app. complex conglomerates.
This is the first property I ever owned, and like I’ve read somewhere in the past, sometimes you have to feed properties (I know this is going to illicit wild responses from some of you) in the beginning, but later, like in this case, 8 years, it’s paying off very nicely.
It will help offset other less fortunate decisions.
