BUYING A FORECLOSURE PROPERTY WITH AN EXISTING TENANT

If you pick up properties at a foreclosure sale or buy REO’s, you are bound to end up with a property that is Tenant occupied.  Being familiar with the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009 (PTFA), will come in handy if you want to evict the tenant.  (For a copy of the PTFA click here)

PTFA protects tenants from eviction due to a foreclosure on the property that they occupy. These provisions took effect on May 20, 2009, and originally were scheduled to expire on December 31, 2012. However, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) changed the expiration date to December 31, 2014. 

The PTFA requires a foreclosure buyer to give a tenant with no lease a 90 day notice to vacate before filing an eviction. If you give a tenant notice that is less than 90 days, you will be in violation of PTFA. This means if you jump the gun and start your eviction too early, the court will dismiss your eviction action and most likely award fees and costs to the tenant’s attorney.

PTFA applies in the case of any foreclosure on a “federally related mortgage loan” OR on any dwelling OR residential real property.

However, if the Tenant has a legally binding, bona fide lease, that was entered into before notice of foreclosure, the 90 day rule does not apply and the tenant must be permitted to stay in the residence until the end of their lease term, with the exception of the purchaser of a foreclosed property who will occupy the property as their primary residence. In that case the new owner does not have to honor the lease. However, even in that scenario the tenant must still receive 90 days notice before they may be evicted.

Tax Deductions on Rentals for Landlord and Investor

Tax Deductions Every Property Investor Should Know About

Did you know that rental properties provide more tax benefits than most other investments? Were you aware that by owning rentals you are entitled to deduct on your taxes a full array of necessary business related expenses towards conserving, managing and upkeep that are associated with your rental investment properties?

The many available tax deductions on rentals can have a significant impact.

Almost everything you buy for your rental business is tax deductible, so long as it is ordinary and necessary and the cost is not unreasonable. These deductions can really add up and increase your bottom line. No one wants to pay more than necessary to fix up their rental units or pay more than they have to for utilities or other operating expenses for a rental property, so why pay more taxes on your rental income than necessary? Yet, surprisingly many tax benefits are overlooked by the investor.

Investors can deduct mortgage interest payments on loans used to acquire or improve rental property, interest on credit cards for goods or services used in a rental activity, homeowner’s association dues, special assessments, wages and salaries for employees, such as on sight residential managers and maintenance workers and even for legal and professional services such as attorneys, accountants, property management companies and other professionals.

Other tax-deductible services that can be used as deductions are independent contractors, needed for the repairs or maintenance of the property, such as a handyman, electrician, plumbers; pest control, lawn and garden upkeep, preventative work; roofers, painter etc….

Additionally if you rent equipment and tools or buy material and supplies, these too are fully deductible as a business expense.

If your rental property is damaged or destroyed like from a fire or flood, you should be able to obtain a tax deduction for your casualty losses.  And speaking of casualty, you can also deduct the premiums you pay for most insurance for your rental property.

Bottom line – speak with an experienced accountant and let him/her guide you on how to maximize the tax deductions on rentals and your property. You may have a tax deduction gold mine.

South Florida Apartment Rentals Are Still Hot!

South Florida Apartment Rentals in Growing Demand – Act Now!

There is still time to benefit from the worst U.S. housing shortage in a decade. As we start off 2015 there is great news for investors of multifamily housing – especially in upscale units.

There is an under supply of single family houses and apartments to rent for the first time since 2001. This has caused South Florida Apartment Rentals rates to rise faster than many of the nation’s largest metro areas.

As former homeowners prefer to turn to rentals in large numbers, the apartment sector continues to grow. Additionally, millennials and others who prefer to remain mobile or prefer the excitement of downtown living and the urban life style, are facilitating the pent-up demand for apartments. This is keeping the apartment market healthy, increasing and robust.

Joseph Thomas, a vice president for the Marcus & Millichap firm in Fort Lauderdale said “We’re seeing the market respond with a willingness to pay very, very strong rent for a quality product.”

To satisfy this demand, developers are building thousands of apartments across South Florida, many of them being luxury units.

But not all the construction and cranes that you see dotting the South Florida market are with the focus on renters. Many buyers (even the foreign buyers) have no interest in renting, but prefer to keep their units empty and for personal seasonal use. This means that, for some time, there will still be a shortage of South Florida apartment rentals available, especially in the luxury arena. With a lack of existing supply and with rental rates steadily increasing, this is still a landlord’s market.

Oral Lease vs. Written Lease, Month to Month Rental – Part Three

MONTH TO MONTH LEASE – ORAL & WRITTEN

Part Three

This is the third and final part to the blog addressing the benefits of a month to month oral lease vs. a month to month written lease. ( View Part One and Part Two)

We have discussed the:

  • Pro’s of  ORAL (non – written) month to month rental
  • Con’s of  ORAL (non – written) month to month rental
  • Pro’s of WRITTEN month to month lease.

We will conclude by discussing the Con’s of a WRITTEN month to month lease.

Having a month to month written lease doesn’t give the landlord any grater peace of mind than an oral month to month lease.  A written month to month lease still gives the tenant an easy and fast way out of the lease with a short notice period. The tenant can leave at any time they desire, so long as they give the landlord at least 15 days’ notice prior to the end of the monthly rental period.  This means the landlord has no peace of mind that his unit will be occupied for the year. The tenant can move out and now the landlord is stuck cleaning up the unit and re-renting, costing the landlord a lot of extra money and loss of rental income.  This is a major disadvantage of a month to month tenancy – whether it is with an oral lease or written lease.

However based on the total Pro’s and Con’s of a monthly oral lease vs. a monthly written lease (that we discussed in these 3 blogs) I would always recommend, (unless the landlord has extenuating circumstances)  having a written one year lease, over having any type of month to month lease.

Bottom line, if you need to go month to month, there are more benefits and protections having a written month to month lease over having an oral month to month lease.

Landlord Liable for Dog Bites by Tenant’s Pet?

THE LANDLORDS LIABILITY FOR A DOG BITE

Frequently we get 911 calls from non clients who are self managing owners, who are panicking due to a lawsuit caused by their tenant’s dog biting a guest on the property.

Most recently, this common question took on a higher level of concern since this owner did not have insurance,  a written lease, nor a pet agreement ( 3 more reasons why property management  should be left to the  professionals like Octazon).

So how much trouble is such an owner in when a dog bites a visitor to the property? Is the Landlord Liable for Dog Bites? Is the Property Owner responsible for tenants’  dangerous pets? ( To learn more about tenants with dangerous dogs see our earlier blog here).

Florida Statute Chapter 767, specifically deals with damage caused by dogs and creates a strict liability for the owner of a dog (which means if a dog bites someone, the owner of the dog is held liable for all damage and injuries). Simply put, there is no mulligan or do over for the owner of the dog because the owner never expected its dog to bite someone. Ignorance in this case is not bliss.

But this statute really addresses the owner of the dog and their liability for dog bites or other injuries to a person, and doesn’t address the owner of the property – the landlord.  Is the landlord also responsible and held culpable for the tenant’s conduct – for the tenant’s negligence and carelessness?

Based upon the statute and even case law, the landlord’s liability is unclear. However, it appears that the liability of landlord is governed by the knowledge of the landlord that (a) the tenant had a dog and (b) the dog had a propensity to bite.

If the landlord truly had no knowledge of any dog, then the landlord should not be liable for the damage caused to others by the tenant’s dog.  But if the landlord did have knowledge of a dog, the question then arises, should the landlord have known that the dog was dangerous, aggressive, had a history of causing problems, bit another person or pet before, etc?

If the landlord knew the tenant had a dog, BUT had no knowledge that the tenant’s dog was dangerous, aggressive, etc…, the injured person will likely have a tough time holding the owner of the property liable under Florida Statutes or under a negligence theory – despite the landlord knowing the tenant had a dog.

So in this caller’s situation, the focus of a lawsuit would be on the knowledge of the landlord –did the landlord know the tenant had a dog and whether the dog had a propensity to bite or if it was a dangerous breed.   If it can be proven that the landlord had knowledge of the dog and that it had a propensity to bite, then case law has held the landlord liable for dog bites. Unfortunately, the entire case would turn upon these set of facts -what did the landlord know and what did the landlord do.  Proving your version of the events may be quite expensive.

The case called Jerry Knoble  v. Sue A Yorke 490 So. 2nd 29 (SC of Fla. 1986), is an important case regarding liability.  Additionally, there are numerous other cases which parse the issue depending on landlord’s knowledge, landlord’s knowledge of viciousness and landlord’s posting of “Bad Dog” signs in the event of knowledge of a vicious dog warning of viciousness.  Also, if the bite took place off of the property of the landlord and in the easement owned by the city that would be another out for the landlord.

Tenant’s Dangerous Dog – Pit Bulls and Others

THE PIT BULL DILEMMA

Imagine going to visit your rental property for a check up or to deliver a 3 day notice and to your surprise your tenant recently got a new roommate – a pit bull or some other similar dangerous breed. Other than run, what else should or can you do? Your tenant’s dangerous dog may be more than just a worry – it could be a legal liability. ( See our blog post here about Landlord liability for dog bites)

In general, a pit bull is a dangerous breed and to own one may likely be in violation of many city and or county codes and ordinances.

So what can be done about a tenant’s dangerous dog or other pet?

Step 1: Check your local code and ordinances. For example: It is illegal in Miami-Dade County to own or keep American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, or any other dog that substantially conforms to any of these breeds’ characteristics, and there is  a $500 fine for acquiring or keeping a pit bull dog .  Broward County has not been successful in passing a law banning pit bulls. However in the City of Lauderhill, while they don’t ban pit bulls, they do have a pit bull regulation for dogs that have previously attacked, requiring its owner to maintain significant insurance.

In 1990, Florida legislators banned any municipality from passing legislation that targets a particular breed — laws often referred to as breed-specific legislation, or BSLs. Such a ban against pit-bull type dogs only survives in Miami-Dade County and any other county whose county wide ordinance pre-dates the state law.

Step 2 : So long as the tenant is not claiming their pit bull is an assistive animal, if your local code considers a pit bull a dangerous breed, then  you can insist that the tenant immediately remove the pit bull or be subject to a 7 day notice of termination of lease.  However, if there are no local ordinances regulating the pit bull then so long as the animal is well behaved, you are out of luck and your only option is not to renew the lease.

Going forward: To control the decision of having or not having pit bulls or other dangerous breeds on your property,  you should consider adding the following language to your prospective tenant application form:

Pets are permitted only on certain properties at the sole discretion and written approval of the Property Owner and upon signing a “Pet Addendum” to the lease. Only small to medium sized, non-violent, common domesticated animals will be allowed on any property that permits animals. Farm animals, snakes, other reptiles, exotic animals, and any large or aggressive animal will not be approved including but not limited to: Rottweiler’s, American Staffordshire Terriers (pit bulls), American Pit Bull Terriers, Dobermans and German Shepherds.

Of course – you must waive any animal restriction in a case where an animal is proven necessary to accommodate a person with a disability.

We will blog at a future date on how to address a request from a tenant who insists that their dangerous breed – assistance animal live with them.

ORAL LEASE VS. WRITTEN LEASE, MONTH TO MONTH – Part Two

MONTH TO MONTH ORAL LEASE & WRITTEN LEASE

Part Two

As I mentioned in part one of this blog – I recently I had an investor ask me about the benefits of a month to month oral lease vs. a month to month written lease.

(To Read Part One of This Blog , Click HERE)

We will now discuss the Pro’s of a WRITTEN month to month lease.

Pros of a WRITTEN month to month lease:

A month to month written lease could be a blessing, since it allows the landlord to have a short lease period. The tenant only gets to stay until such time as Landlord decides to terminate the lease. The law clearly states that a month to month tenancy can be terminated by either party giving at least 15 days’ notice prior to the end of the monthly rental period – unless the written lease provides for a longer period.

Another PRO is if a landlord is not sure that they want to have this tenant for a full year OR if they are not having any difficulties with the current tenant and would like to extend the lease but the landlord is not sure they want this existing tenant to stay for another full year, then a written month to month tenancy may work for you. However, if the landlord wants to go that route, then, before the existing lease expires, the landlord should notify the tenant that the landlord is non-renewing the lease and is offering a month-to-month tenancy at a new monthly rent. Then have the tenant sign a month to month written tenancy form.

Another PRO is if the landlord wants the existing tenant to renew the lease but the tenant does not want to commit to a year lease, then a written month to month may be a good, practical  solution.

Your month to month written tenancy can  be established by existing language in your original lease, so check the language in your lease. For example, your lease may contain the following or similar language: If landlord consents to tenant remaining in the premises after the expiration of this Lease, and no new Lease is signed, the tenancy shall be deemed to be extended as a month-to-month tenancy and during this month-to-month tenancy, all terms and conditions of this lease shall remain in full force and effect.

If your lease doesn’t contain appropriate language simply have the tenant sign a month to month written addendum to the existing lease.

We will discuss the cons of a WRITTEN month to month lease in a future blog.

ORAL LEASE VS. WRITTEN LEASE, MONTH TO MONTH – Part One

MONTH TO MONTH ORAL LEASE VS. WRITTEN LEASE – Pros and Cons

Recently I had an investor ask me about the benefits of a month to month oral lease vs. a month to month written lease.

While there is much to blog about this, essentially here is what you need to know about the pros and cons of both an oral month to month lease and a written month to month lease.

Of course, having a traditional one year, written lease, allows the owner to know and plan how long the tenant will be in the property and can also provide the Landlord with specific written protections. BUT if the lease is month to month or is oral (non – written) then it gives the tenant the flexibility to move whenever they want and  excludes certain landlord protections – this should make a landlord nervous.

Therefore, it is always best to have a written one year lease.  But if you decide to have an oral agreement (and not a  written lease),  the usual form of residential oral lease agreement  is a monthly lease which is governed by Chapter 83, Part II, of the Florida Statutes and will provide  many  of the  lease terms between the landlord and tenant.  For example, absent a written lease the Florida Statute or a judge, will dictate how much time must be given for a notice of termination, what the landlord’s and the tenant’s duties are, and some other provisions.

Pro’s of a ORAL (non – written) month to month rental  

An oral lease creates a tenancy at will, that is, the rental can be terminated by the landlord at any time without any reason – giving at least 15 days’ notice to tenant prior to the end of the monthly rental period.

Con’s of an ORAL (non – written) month to month rental   

The tenant can also terminate the rental at anytime, without any reason. The owner can NOT plan how long the tenant will be in the property and the landlord has no peace of mind that his unit will be occupied for the year.

Another con is the landlord has less legal protection and control and can not dictate specific terms that the tenant has to follow since nothing is in writing. This increases landlord’s risk of a lawsuit.

In our next articles we will discuss the Pro’s and Con’s of a WRITTEN month to month lease. ( View Part Two Here and Part Three Here of this blog’s continuation).

New Tenants and Outstanding Utility Bills – North Miami Beach

CLASS ACTION : OVERCHARGING NEW TENANTS FOR UNPAID FORMER TENANT’S WATER & SEWER BILLS – AND THE CITY OF NORTH MIAMI BEACH 

It’s official : New Tenants and Outstanding Utility Bills are not connected to one another!

If an unpaid utility bill is in the former tenant’s name & not in the landlord’s name, then under Florida law, a utility provider may NOT ; Ask for payment of unpaid utility bills from the landlord, Discontinue service or Refuse the new tenant service to the property. To do so is illegal and violates Florida Statute 180.135, case law, the Municipal Public Works Act & the Florida Consumer Collection Practice Act.

Additionally, the utility provider can not  place any lien against the rental property or take any legal action against the Landlord or new  tenant  to recover overdue bills. In Berke v. City of Miami Beach, 568 So.2d 108 (Fla. 3rd DCS 1990) the City of Miami Beach filed a lien against the rental property for the unpaid utility bills of the former tenants. The court of appeals ruled, that the City could not impose a lien against the rental property. The fact that the former tenants received utilities, was deemed not to be a benefit to the landlord. The Court further stated that the City should have protected itself by requiring the landlord to co-sign for the utility account.

(Read about this problem also here in a previous blog post)

So,one would think that since the law is very clear, new tenants and landlords should not be hassled by a utility provider to pay the bills of former tenants. Surprisingly, that is not  case.

If onboarding new tenants and outstanding utility bills is an issue with your rental properties then Push back! Tell them the law! Let them know that recently a class action was certified by a Miami Dade Circuit Judge, alleging that the City of North Miami Beach has been illegally charging  utility connection fees, forcing  new tenants to pay delinquent bills of  former occupants before they could receive water and sewer service. Since the law is clear, the lawsuit claims that the city’s collection efforts of outstanding utility bills from former tenants has been in violation of several state laws

This practice, says Patrick Montoya, an attorney representing this class action suit, “has likely victimized hundreds if not thousands of tenants”.

It is about time that we are taking this fight to the courts to stop these illegal charges. They add up and impact the return on your investment.

Buying a Foreclosure with Existing Tenant – Part 2

BUYING A FORECLOSURE PROPERTY WITH AN EXISTING TENANT & THE PTFA – PART II

In February of 2014, I blogged about the importance for investors who are buying a property in foreclosure with existing tenants and who want to immediately evict the existing tenant, because they are dead beats – they must first be familiar with the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act – the PTFA. (To see a copy of the PTFA click here).

That blog discussed how the PTFA requires a buyer of a foreclosure to give the current tenant that has no lease a 90 day notice to vacate the investment property before filing an eviction. And if you give a tenant less than a 90 day notice, you will be in violation of the PTFA and risk the court dismissing your eviction action. (To read Part I of this article See Blog here).

In a recent PTFA case, CitiMortgage, Inc., Vs. Lutz, the court reconfirmed the 90 day safe harbor for tenants by holding that if the owner jumps the gun and files its eviction before the 90 day grace period and is successful, the tenant can have the writ of possession quashed and your eviction ruling set aside allowing them to finish out their 90 days in peace.

However, the above case (which ruled in the 7th Judicial Circuit in and for Volusia County) also provided some reprieve for the investor  who jumps the gun before the 90 days. The court ruled that since there was no lease governing this tenancy, the tenants’ attorney under the PTFA was NOT entitled to an award of attorney’s fees.

While this ruling limits the consequences of your actions – avoid going down this path in the first place by making sure your eviction is filed timely.
