Eviction Assistance

We Manage Your Property While You Manage Your Life.

The number one rule to remember when you have tenants who aren’t paying rent on time - it’s better to work with them, than to evict them immediately! Your biggest cost as a homeowner with rental property is turnover. There are a number of costs associated with preparing the property for a new tenant, you have no rent coming in during a turnover and there are maintenance and repair expenses, as well as utilities. So many expensive things happen during a turnover. We don’t want you to pay for those things, so we always recommend that you work with these slow paying tenants.

Constant Contact

A good way to work with tenants who are late is to use constant contact. If the tenants don’t pay by a certain day of the month, we start phone calls and we drive by the property. We want to know what’s going on and we want to be sure that they haven’t skipped out. If they are still there, we want to start enforcing the rules of rental payment. Tenants know up front that we will enforce the lease. We will charge late fees and do everything we can to make sure they know we are serious about collecting rent.

Payment Plans

When you’re working with tenants to get the rent paid without eviction, payment plans that are specific and enforced can be helpful. We have set up payment plans in the past, and most of the time they work just fine. It keeps you from feeling like you have to evict too fast.

Timelines in Texas

The good thing is that we are in Texas. In some states, it takes six to eight months to evict. Here, it can be done in 30 to 45 days. We don’t recommend eviction as the first step, we always try to work with a Tenant in order to preserve the income stream for you, the Owner. If you end up needing to evict, the process can be done quickly.

Tenant experience with Terra was excellent. They were always responsive to work orders, hired good subs to fix issues, and used RentTrack to autopay rent. Seamless and professional, and they were easy to work with on the front end of the lease and similar when the lease was up. Highly recommend if you are looking for property management. I worked with James Dominy and Sarah Magee, both responsive and professional.

Terra Residential is a super professional property management company. I rent from an owner who isn't located in the US. Whenever I have a problem, I submit a support ticket, and they get back to me immediately and send out a repair person. They are super professional and very responsive, and I'm very happy with their service.
