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 definitely a staple of American life. People across the country get together in their homes, participate in private parties, or have fun at large public events to motivate their favorite team. Your residents, also, will probably celebrate the Super Bowl with a social event of a certain kind. Thus, as to resident parties, it’s essential to be aware of what can be done in advance to keep things under control. Read on to discover more regarding the five things La Mesa 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 evolving into huge gatherings that multiply the risk of damage and liability can be an issue. How many people is too many when having a party on your property? Can (and should) you make it a point to disallow your residents from drinking alcohol? What if your residents want to broadcast the game outdoors? Clearly knowing these concerns in advance can help you to address and manage your resident’s parties before they ever transpire.

Put It in the Lease

The maximum number of party guests, acceptable noise levels, and more can all be considered and addressed in your lease documents. The wording in your lease documents should specifically limit the group of guests sanctioned on the property at a given time, with great numbers entailing special permission. The definite number varies, but definitely “no more than 10 for fewer than four hours” is a popular option.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Alcohol

Even while you can’t legally prohibit alcohol consumption by your residents, you can incorporate specific language in your lease that resolves illegal activities and states certain 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 to have. Thus, your lease should address any noise and parking ordinances that may conflict with a resident’s party plans, guaranteeing they are knowledgeable of any restrictions on the allowed hours and volume of game broadcasts and a maximum number of visitors’ cars.

Renters Insurance and Renters Legal Liability

Something you should always do is to make certain that your residents have their own renters insurance. If a large party does occur on the property, the chances of damage and injury increase substantially. On the off chance damage or injury does befall, you could be held responsible unless your resident has their own insurance coverage.

Protecting your rental homes necessitates that you very conscientiously enforce the lease agreement terms. If a party gets out of hand and loud, destructive, or illegal activity is actually happening, it’s essential to act fast and decisively to hold your residents accountable.
