2021-04-12 HOW TO GET RESIDENTS TO CUT THE GRASS | By: Jeff Taylor

by Jeffery Taylor, Mr. Landlord

It's Spring time! The time of year when grass is growing. And for many landlords, there is a clause in the lease agreement that says the resident is responsible for cutting the grass. BUT, what if the resident does NOT do as the lease outlines? In our Q&A Forum, a landlord discovers this to be the case with a few of his or her residents. The following question was asked for other landlords to offer their advice:

"It's spring and the grass is growing. I did my quarterly inspections and there are a few slackers in the yard care maintenance department...Anyone have a nice, politically correct letter that they send to tenants to mow the yard, trim the bushes, and weed the flower beds?"

Several landlords responded with words of wisdom from their experience. Good advice was offered on exactly what the landlord should say to get them to mow the lawn. Although there were a few that questioned whether the landlord was expecting too much of their residents. Yes, Spring is here. And if you have residents that are responsible for cutting the grass, click now to see how other landlords best handle this situation, along with a couple of alternative suggestions.
