I'm considering changing tenants to a week to week rental - hoping that would minimize the inevitable eviction process. Is there any serious drawbacks on this? I was planning on adding on (garages & conversion from 1bed to 2bed) & just now realized the lender might not be too thrilled with no long term leases in place. Your thoughts please?

You would think a pro knows the difference between renting and letting

The math is wrong at 3:00, you had calculated payments based on the number of weeks in a year (52) and should have used the number of MONTHS in a year because no one pays weekly or they could end up paying 5 times in one month if there are 5 reoccurring "Fridays" for example. It should be that bi-weekly payments of $260 add $20 dollars more a month ($520) and $20 x 12 is simply $240. totaling $6,240 annually, and so on. Correct me if i'm wrong and if i am not, you published a book with that wrong info?!?

Hmm...I like it because it gives a shorter leash towards tenants that may have trouble with payment history, but I also think it is taking advantage of their lack of knowledge.

As a property manager, would you keep the extra that is above the lease amount that the owner wants to rent at? Can you even do that? If so how do you share that with owners?

I bought my first property when i was 22 years old and ive used this method i alwayz used the three strike rule that i put on my lease which means ( and mind you rent was at a good price that included hot water and light) $625 a month not bad i belice. And it baffeled me how ppl that i rented it out were having trouble paying rent. Mind they alwayz bought tvs ipads cars stuff like that but in the end it works out. Paitence and management is key.

Trying to find the landlord meeting in Harvey tomorrow
If tenants can manage their personal finance well, they usually pay rents on time in full on the 1st of each month which they don't need bi weekly or weekly payment plans. On the other hand, if tenants have trouble with managing their personal finance or financially irresponsible, they usually either pay rents late or no savings to cover any unexpected expenses. So it would be more risky or troublesome for landlord to provide bi weekly or weekly payment plans to those kind of tenants, because those tenants could tell you this any time in the future: "I don't have money now n what are you gonna do with me?"

How are these tenants costing a landlord more time/money?
great video but i cant afford the 4/6 flat i want so could slowly buying sing family homes and growing be feasible or would property taxs kill my profit? maybe i should speak with a financial planer who can go more in-depth with my situation ?

I'm an aspiring landlord. What types of books and/or training should I get to become a successful landlord?

Are late fees applied differently with these different payment options?
I like that. Thanks
I have done this for years. It is great. I don't do it for the extra money, but because It is also easier to evict a tenant for non payment. You know sooner that they are having trouble paying and you get more judgements per month, which gets them out easier.

Great video. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that writes like a 3rd Grader!
