In today’s fast moving world, the traditional method of collecting delinquent rent is not effective.

What is Multifamily Delinquency Management?

Posted by Eric Sigler on Aug 23, 2016 10:11:08 AM


In 2014 there were over 3.4 million eviction cases in the apartment industry. What’s more, if you manage class B/C properties delinquency rates of 10 – 30% are quite common.  While the direct implications of this situation are obvious, what’s often overlooked are the indirect and opportunity costs associated with how you manage the process.

Posted by Eric Sigler on Mar 15, 2016 12:00:00 PM

If tenant has failed to pay their rent, you might find yourself in court to pursue an eviction.  That’s bad enough. Then your tenant tells the court they have filed for bankruptcy.  Upon confirmation of the filing, the court will immediately stay eviction proceedings for an indeterminate period of time. Now you’re left with a delinquent tenant paying no further rent and no recourse to make him either pay or leave.  What should you do?

If at First You Don't Succeed, File File Again

Posted by Eric Sigler on Feb 15, 2016 12:00:00 PM
