  • Property Management Q & A - Spring 2017


    Question: We manage a 150 unit complex in South Seattle. I have a tenant that wants to move his wife and child into the apartment he shares with a roommate. Their payment history is terrible. Due to the poor payment history, I don't want to allow any lease changes. Making this even more complicated, he disclosed to me that his wife was just released from parole in Texas. Does the fact that he disclosed this tie my hands to taking the application for his wife? Due to the recent HUD guidance, I am concerned about not letting her apply due to the criminal aspect. Could I tell him if he has clean rent and utility payments for 6 straight months I'll at least accept her application?

  • Taking the Online Offline


    As much as I love social media and technology—there is nothing like meeting someone face-to-face. Social media will never replace an in-person meeting at a client’s home, a phone call or a handwritten note. But, when done right—social media can enhance and make the offline experience so much richer and more meaningful.
