Rental Costs
By Marcia Hilley


April 30, 2009

We have been landlords in Ketchikan since 1975. Ohhh the stories we could tell! However the only one who cares is another landlord! The tenants I have now are working single parents. They pay their rent each month and I haven't raised their rent since they moved in...

However I keep a process server busy with upwards of $4,000 for one dead beat. That is what costs you money -- the dead beats! There are lots of landlord tenant rules, good landlords follow them Remember we took the chance to go into rentals. Renters want to feel safe and able to walk away with 30 days notice.
