AMC’s hit TV show “Breaking Bad” is about an underachieving chemistry genius who gets cancer and, to take care of his family, starts cooking the purest and most expensive crystal meth in New Mexico.
And you know what?
That got me to thinking about YOU, recently.
Here’s what I mean:
Drug users in general, including crystal meth users, are everywhere. And they pop up in places that can seriously affect our real estate businesses.
Tenants immediately come to mind.
If you have drug-using tenants they can quickly create trouble for you and your rental property.
And since birds of a feather flock together, more trouble is never far behind.
And if they also turn your property into a “cook site” then they can put your rental out of commission for a long time while you have the biohazard mess cleaned up.
Imagine all that time of having to pay the mortgage and expenses on your property but not being able to rent it out because it got messed up by a drug-using or drug-producing tenant…
Liability can be HUGE.
Is it just tenants?
Think about your contractors too.
They have total access to your property when they are rehabbing or making repairs and when they are on YOUR property, YOU have liability.
Hey, I’m not saying it’s right, but that’s the way it is. People will go after you as it is assumed your pockets are deeper.
So how to best deal with this problem?
Stop it before it starts.
Nip it in the bud.
Learn to identify, in advance, the telltale signs that someone is an illegal drug user.
Then you’ll know the risks of having them on your property or even doing business with them at all.
What are those signs?
Find out at TOMORROW’s Traction REIA on Thursday Oct 25th.
We’re bringing in an expert to teach you.
The Fairfax County police department is sending an officer to discuss how to identify illegal drug users that affect our businesses. This is extremely useful when screening tenants or hiring contractors/subcontractors.
He’ll also cover common issues the police face in Fairfax and how real estate professionals can help.
It’s an exciting and one-of-a-kind event, so clear your schedule now and mark your calendar.
