31 Jul Tenant has over 30 cars on property.
One of my property’s is in a small rural area in WA. My lot has a trailer which I rent out to a couple and a fence down the middle of he lot to have an RV hook up. The tenant in the RV mentioned that he was looking for a place with a big garage (both rentals have large garages) and that he has retired from his car bodywork/ mechanic shop and was looking for a place to be able to bring some of his fixer uppers and work on.
Before he moved in he asked that he could have a couple cars to work on, we talked about how many and I believe we said 10. I just found out that he has over 30 cars on the property and now my property manager wants to raise the rent but $600.
My concern is the possible damage it could do to the yard or what it would cost if he ever just decides to pack up and leave without taking them with him . I haven’t heard anything negative from the neighbors (my other tenant and someone who loves behind the lot). They told me he has a lot of cars but he seems like a friendly guy when I spoke with them on the phone before. Up until the lease renewal I wouldn’t have known he has had so many.
What are your thoughts on this? Any suggestions or concerns I should should bring up to my property manager? I don’t live in the state anymore so I can’t go see for myself and just have photos.
