How a Cash-for-Keys Agreement helps Bryan-College Station Landlords Save Money

 

If you’ve been researching real estate investing or you already own a rental property, you have likely heard horror stories about evicting tenants. Many of those stories may be true, but you can avoid evictions with a cash for keys agreement. This type of agreement reduces the drama of evictions and saves you money.

A professional property manager can walk you through the decision-making process and provide you with the steps to offer tenants cash for keys. The end result is a vacant property, which you can quickly rent out to new tenants.

How Does Cash for Keys Avoid Eviction?

Cash for keys is a name that’s been given for a legally binding private agreement between a property owner and a tenant. In this situation, the owner offers a cash payment to the tenant as an incentive to vacate the property in a certain number of days. This avoids a lengthy and expensive formal eviction process. It can be an easy alternative.

Using Cash for Keys to Remove Squatters

Another scenario where cash for keys can work is when you’re vacating squatters. Sometimes, homes are vacant for long periods of time, and squatters set up house. According to Texas law, you have to go through the entire eviction process to remove squatters from your property, even though they don’t have a right to be there. This is expensive and lengthy, and cash for keys can save you money.
