Residents and Super Bowl Parties: Five Things Landlords Need to Know

A Diverse Group of Young People Watching the Super Bowl on TVSuper Bowl parties are a known staple of American life. People across the country flock together in their homes, take part in private parties or engage in happy celebrations at large public events to shout and root for their favorite team. Your residents, as well, will presumably celebrate the Super Bowl with a social event of some sort. This is why, in the matter of resident parties, it’s crucial to get an idea of what can be done in advance to keep things under control. Read on to know more clearly about the five things Dunnellon property managers and landlords need to know about Super Bowl parties in their rental homes.

Decide How to Handle Large Parties on Your Properties in Advance

Keeping your resident’s Super Bowl celebrations from getting to be grand happenings that widen the risk of damage and liability can be a complication. How many people is too many when you toss a party on your property? Can (and should) you attempt to discourage your residents from having alcohol? What if your residents want to broadcast the game outdoors? Knowing these concerns in advance can really help you to address and manage your resident’s parties before they ever occur.

Put It in the Lease

The maximum number of party guests, acceptable noise levels, and more can all be outlined and detailed in your lease documents. The wording in your lease documents should clearly limit the number of guests permissible on the property at any point, with large numbers needing special permission. The detailed number varies, but usually “no more than 10 for fewer than four hours” is a popular option.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Alcohol

Even supposing you can’t legally prohibit alcohol consumption by your residents, you can make use of distinctive language in your lease that deals with illegal activities and lays out detailed consequences of allowing such activity on your rental property.

Noise and Public Nuisance Ordinances

Excessive noise, too many cars parked near the property, and other party-related events may create a public nuisance and perhaps a legal tangle you don’t want. This is why your lease should address any noise and parking ordinances that may conflict with a resident’s party plans, making sure they are clearly aware of any restrictions on the allowed hours and volume of game broadcasts and a maximum number of visitor’s cars.

Renters Insurance and Renters Legal Liability

Something you should do all the time is to make absolutely sure that your residents have their own renters insurance. If a large party does happen on the property, the likelihood of damage and injury increases greatly. In the occasion that damage or injury does actually happen, you could be held responsible unless your resident has their own insurance coverage.

Protecting your rental homes necessitates that you ardently enforce the lease agreement terms. If a party gets out of hand and loud, destructive, or illegal activity is transpiring, it’s crucial to act quickly and decisively to hold your residents accountable.
