Collecting Bad Debt

Property owners who rent their properties suffer so much financial loss each year. It is not uncommon for property owners to have to write off bad debt at the end of the year. How much bad debt you write off because of tenant’s payment delinquency will hinge on whether you have a good property management company or not.

For so long, about 12 percent of property owners have simply reconciled themselves to the reality that a certain fraction of all tenant move-outs will result in bad debt. They also have had to embrace the truth that collection agencies can only recuperate 18 percent of all the referred bad debt and in addition, it can take more than five years to recover.

Mississippi Real Estate Solutions is your answer to the right property management answers to collecting bad debt. First, we know the substantial benefit of collecting the initial security deposit.

The renter is aware that if these conditions are not met, then the security deposit becomes the property of the owner.
