316: Rookie Reply: Put THIS in Your Lease Agreement (So Tenants Don’t Break It!)
Your tenant is breaking their landlord tenant lease agreement. What now? Do you go after the money or eat the loss? Depending on the amount, it may not even be worth the trouble. Either way, perhaps the more important question to ask is, “How can I prevent this from ever happening again?”
