Customer Question

My name is ***** ***** I own a small mobile home park in Grapevine. When my parents began this business, times were very different and they just had verbal arrangements with the tenants. I am wanting to execute written leases but am not sure exactly how to begin. Please help me to understand how to move forward with this. Thanks.

Good morning Carlita. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

With no leases, your tenants are considered "at will" tenants which are treated legally as month to month tenants. With month to month tenants, what you need to do is give them written notice of at least 30 days that they either need to sign a written lease or vacate the property. You'll want to send the written notice in a friendly manner where you tell them that you would love to have them continue their tenancies, but that you need to have signed written leases with all your tenants so you can more effectively and efficiently manage your park. But, the bot***** *****ne is that you want to let them know that if they won't be willing to sign a lease, their tenancy will be terminated.
