Rent Collection: Preventing Eviction in San Diego

Collecting rent seems simple enough; your tenant pays it, and you deposit it.

It’s not always that easy. Tenants can forget, pay late, and sometimes struggle to communicate that they need some extra time or a little help. This is a sensitive subject for San Diego rental property owners. Evicting is always an option, but that will take time and money and leave you with a vacancy.

We’ve found that two things are especially important when it comes to collecting rent on time. That’s a consistent rent collection policy and online payment options. Our positive tenant relationships also help – we’re easy to talk to and work with.

Collecting rent on time is one of our most important jobs.

Because we screen thoroughly and consistently enforce the lease, evictions are unlikely at Walters Home Management.

Rent Collection Policies Improve On-Time Payments

Positive tenant relationships are good for your investment property – we’ve said it before.

This is especially apparent when it comes to collecting rent. We work closely with tenants to ensure they meet their obligations and communicate openly when something goes wrong. 

Our rent collection policies are transparent and enforced. They can be found in the lease agreement. Tenants know exactly how much rent is due, when it’s due, and how it should be paid. There is no room for confusion or uncertainty. 

Tenants also understand the consequences of rent being paid late. They know there is a late fee and they know that if they don’t work with us, we will take steps towards eviction. 

San Diego neighborhoods we serve include Carmel Mountain Ranch, Rancho Bernardo, 4S Ranch, and Carmel Valley.

Technology Assists in Rent Collection

By allowing for online rent payments, we’ve found that it’s easier for residents to pay their rent on time every month. Gone are the days of writing out a rent check, sticking it in an envelope, and hunting down a stamp. 

Our investment in innovative property management software allows us to make rent collection easy, accountable, and well-documented. It provides a better service for our owners and our tenants because:

  • Rent payments are fast and automated
  • Tenants can schedule payments in advance
  • Owners get paid faster
  • All processed payments show up on your income statement
  • Payments are secure and convenient for all parties

Tenants prefer paying online, but for those who would rather pay in person or with a check, we make accommodations. This contributes to lower instances of late rent payments.

Avoiding but Preparing for Eviction in San Diego

Our tenants know that rent is due on the first of each month. After the third of the month, rent is considered late. This is clearly stated in our lease agreement. 

We are willing to work with tenants who need extra time or are struggling financially. We have open lines of communication always, and we’re willing to set up payment arrangements and agreements. 

If rent still isn’t received on the fifth of the month and our tenants refuse to talk to us, additional action must be taken. We’ll serve a late notice and begin eviction proceedings if a payment arrangement isn’t made immediately.

This is rare. Our tenants can be counted on to pay on time, and we work together to ensure the expense of eviction is avoided.

Jennifer and her team have been awesome! My sisters and I found ourselves in an awkward mess as owners of our late parents' condo after our former property manager made multiple mistakes and signed a faulty lease on our behalf (without our knowledge). I wouldn't have blamed Jennifer if she had turned us down, but she took us as clients, thank goodness. She and her staff professionally solved our problems one by one. I highly recommend her.
