TE Tips: Understand The Downside

TE Tips: Understand The Downside

Today I have the unenviable task of evicting a family from their home.  This is the downside of being in the rental business.  In any business, there will be tasks you don't want to do, but often your ability to perform those tasks will determine the success of your business.  I'm not looking forward to going to court this morning, but I entered into a contract with another party and I have fulfilled my obligations...they have not.  I could continue to allow them to live in our unit for free, but that would be counter-productive to [...]
