Recently I had a rental single family home exterminated. My tenant is now stating that money was taken from her bedroom closet. However, the exterminating company did not treat her closet nor her dresser because she had not removed any items such as clothes from these areas. I give the tenant a 48 hour notice to remove all non perishable goods from her kitchen cabinets and bathroom cabinets. However, this was not done either me and my son that accompanied me over to the property had to rush to remove these items (and the exterminator waited and assisted with removing some of the food). This is something the exterminator normally doesn't do. However, he saw that I really wanted he extermination resolved that day. I truly believe that my tenant is untruthful. I contacted the exterminating company to inquirer about the situation and was told the closet was not treated and they have been in business for years and have never had a customer complain about theft. The tenant stated she will be filing a police report. What actions should I take if any? Thank you … read more
