What Do You Do If You Come Across Drug Production in a Rental Property?
Your sole aim at this point is to leave the property safely, that’s it! Stay calm and if possible pretend that you did not see anything at all!
When reporting the matter to police they will assess the situation from your information and knowledge that they may already have before deciding when it is best to take action. They may choose to leave it for a period of time so that it is not obvious that you reported the matter, considering your safety and well being. In any case, allow the police to handle the matter and leave it with them.
Avoiding ‘Drug’ Tenants – the 100 Point Identification Check
We must do all we can to keep this type of tenant with misguided and devious intentions away from your rental properties.
Do all you can to keep the wolves out of your sheep paddock! Once they are in they can do a lot of damage so a lot of our focus and time should go into good tenant selection. Of course, we may still have a bad tenant ‘get through the net’ so we must also ensure regular inspections are conducted at the property and inform the tenant of regular inspections and what we look for when we conduct the initial tenant induction and sign up.
