Problem with Evictions? DAWGS Has a Solution
Industry: Real Estate
Evictions can be messy, heartbreaking and at times dangerous -- working with DAWGS can make the eviction process run a bit smoother.
Chicago, IL (PRUnderground) August 31st, 2015
Let’s face it – evictions are not pretty. They can be messy, heartbreaking and at times downright dangerous. For the property owners, evictions are stressful and can be costly. Often after a tenant has been evicted, they will break back in and cause damage to the property. The damage may be done intentionally or unintentionally and may simply be the result of the property being breached. Either way, additional time and money are involved to address the damage – not something a property owner wants to deal with.
DAWGS has the experience and expertise to make the eviction process run a bit smoother. With the DAWGS security solution, there is no need to keep track of keys or lock boxes, which often go missing. The property owner can rest assured that the property is secure and only those they grant access to can enter the property.
The DAWGS team has found that there are two Cs which will lead to smoother evictions, communication and coordination. It may not be rocket science, but when it comes to evictions, these Cs are key.
The communication needs to be two-way, not just the property owner or manager pushing notices. There needs to be acknowledgement of receipt and comprehension on the part of the tenant.
Coordination is also extremely important. The coordination needs to occur between the property owner or investor, the Sherriff and the company tasked with securing the property post-eviction, in this case, DAWGS. Prior to the eviction, DAWGS will make a preemptive field trip to the property to survey the site and make sure they will have all of the required equipment with them on the day of the eviction.
Erik Smits of Kellar Williams knows first-hand the benefits of working with DAWGS to facilitate an eviction. Circumstances with a disgruntled tenant required that once the tenant was evicted, the property needed to be immediately secured. By working together with the Sherrif and the DAWGS team, Erik was able to make the eviction process as seamless as possible, in light of the difficult circumstances.
Erik comments “I have worked with DAWGS for many years, not just to assist with evictions, but to secure any vacant property. I like to use the DAWGS doors because they are coded, I don’t need to worry about lost keys or lockboxes, I can securely manage who has access to the property.”
