Tenant Locked Out at 2 AM (by Jeff [CO]) Posted on: Jan 28, 2018 7:42 AM
Message:

This is a very rare event at this hour. I heard the phone ring early this morning and when I checked voicemail it was from a tenant who had lost her keys. I was kind of annoyed that she called at that hour. I figured that she would then go to crash with whoever she had been out with. (Lockouts are covered in the lease).

She called several times at around 7:00 this morning, not leaving a message, as well as having left me a few e-mails. She wound up at a hotel and hired a locksmith who couldn't get her into the building.

I went over at 7:15 and left some keys for her to use, copy, and return. Okay, some questions and comments.

- She is a terrific tenant who has been there for almost 3 years.

- She was in a bad situation.

- I feel a little bad about not going over at 2 AM.

- Landlording is a 24/7 job sometimes.

But:

- This was 100% her fault - not the building's. SHE lost her keys.

- I don't think that a tenant losing their keys constitutes an emergency for me. A call for that at that hour is annoying.

I am kind of on the fence with this. How would you handle it? We have lockboxes for vendors. I wonder if we should have a lockbox for main building access keys. Of course we would have to keep changing the combination when people move out.

Should we change the main keys so that don't any "do not duplicate," so that they can make copies?

Or is this just not my problem?

Suggestions?

I would have had her come to my house to pick up the spare key. I have had that happen though I think it was around midnight not two AM. Two AM is when the bars close. Maybe this isn't such a great tenant? Locksmith either picks the lock or drills it out. I was locked out of my home when the wind blew a door shut behind me and I did not have a key. It's a 1950s era fancy lock. At least I think it was the wind. Things happen here for which there is no explanation.

Called locksmith. It was Sunday. He was watching football but something told him to pick up the phone. I was out in the rain. He came over. It's only a little more than a mile and he does all my work for 20 years so also a friend. Find a good contractor and be friends. But I would not have called him at 2 AM and when I go out that door now, its rare and I block it open just in case the "wind" decides to shut me out. --73.33.xxx.xxx

Ally beat me to it--she was drunk.

I don't think this one incident necessarily makes her a bad tenant. But it wasn't a super intelligent or conscientious move on tenant's part to call at that time about such a thing.

Message:

If I get locked out at 2 am, I can't call my landlord. So, I don't get locked out. I have a hidden spare key, a neighbor who hides my key, a relative who has the key, etc. And if neither of those options are available (rare, if ever) then I'd crash at a hotel or sleep in my car until it was a decent time to wake someone up. Even a locksmith charges extra for after hour calls...

If I get the call like you did, I'd say "our policy for after hour lockouts is $100, if you can wait until the office is open, it's $30." I don't want them to have to pay me, but who really wants to go at that hour? So it's compromise. If they could not think ahead to set up a spare key with somebody or hide it somewhere our fee is costly but it only happens ONCE because it is so.

I'd feel bad too, but I'd feel mad if she didn't ever figure out an alternate solution because we would come running for nothing when she had a problem. --136.32.xxx.xxx

Whether or not the tenant was out drinking or at a bar or party and not drinking, is none of my business. We can all lock ourselves out. I can't fault them for trying at 2 am. People have different hours, but I would not have answered, nor gotten out of bed at that time myself. I have spare / hidden keys to my place, I would expect tenants to do the same, or stay at a friends or something.

Just chalk it up to one of those things we see as landlords and don't worry about it. Not your problem. Doesn't happen enough to worry what to do. We all do stupid things at times and certainly a good tenant for three years gets a pass on something like this with me. --96.236.xx.xx

Message:

When I was younger I used to give each tenant a one time free replacement key delivered to their rental within one hour of calling me. No more! Let someone get something free and it has no value, they will lock themselves again and expect me to run on over again and again. So I've changed my ways and now do the following:

When I have a new tenant sign the lease and I hand over the keys, I give them 4 copies. Two for them, one for a friend nearby in case the get locked out and the last key to give to another tenant in the building or I can install a lock-box somewhere on the property for them to park their emergency key.

My last new tenant, a professional actress used her lock-box key and forgot to replace it. Then she called me at 9 PM wanting me to open her door. My response was:

a) what about your #3 key, a friend nearby. The friend wasn't answering her cellphone.

b) I gave her the option of having someone drive her to my house, 10 miles away, and I will attach a lock-box to my entry gate where she can receive an extra key. She wasn't going to bother someone else.

c) Then I told her to call a locksmith and gave her three local services, costing around $79 to $129 to come out.

Because I had given her two options when renting the unit and offered for someone to pick up a key from my house, I didn't feel bad about not wasting my time.. --47.156.xx.xx

As a landlord/property owner, my office is in my house. I have a board with hooks on it hanging on a wall and the hooks are identified for each property and unit and door. Spare keys go on the hooks. I also have a copy of each key on a ring that I carry in my brief case. Stuff happens even with only six units. When I had twenty units stuff happened daily.

If I was a manager, not an owner, I would leave the keys in the building office, maybe in a locked location. Those of you who don't seem to care if something burns down, or preventing an unsafe condition, are obviously not the owner and not a good manager either. I don't rent to folks who I would be afraid of knowing where I live. Some folks deliver the rent checks here to my mailbox. I also have three little dogs with excellent hearing and a little legal six shooter in the kitchen. --73.33.xxx.xxx

I sort of agree with this, and I don't try to conceal where I live.

However I can see the other side of it too. A tenant could get involved with drugs (or associate with a dangerous person) after they move in.

Also I don't own a lot of units. It sounds like Jeff[CO] and the risk to you and your family starts to go up the more tenants you're exposed to. And your not going to know these people and their lives as well if you have lots of tenants. So I can understand someone hiding their home address. --72.188.xxx.xx

NE, no one is going to drive me out of my home that my dad built. If you could see it you would know why. Why is it that others are asking for information or help and I'm complaining? Hmm?

I get rid of the drug dealers by getting their license numbers and turning them over to the police. Haven't seen any for awhile either.

I don't recall a horror story about a tenant going to a landlord's house and causing a problem. There are horror stories about weird tenants causing trouble at the units. I screened a weird guy out in November by just paying attention to what he was telling me.

There was a drunk who parents rented to and he through a can of plumber's putty through the front storm window when we raised his rent. I can't hide my address. It's on the lease and any person can call the tax office and find out who owns any of my properties and then figure out how to get my address.

All calls go to voicemail. Google voice automatically goes into "Do Not Disturb" mode between 7 pm and 7 am. I'm a land lord, not a 24-hours per day life coach/ your mama / courier service.

Regarding immediate response to fire, flood, or blood: What am I going to do at 2 AM to stop a fire? Call the fire department! What am I going to do to stop a flood? Call the utility company to shut off the water or use the shut off valve we showed you at lease signing! What am I going to do to fix a break in? Call the cops!

I hand residents 2 keys at lease signing and tell them to make copies and give to trusted folks if they wish. We change locks in between all residents, so I don't care to whom they give copies. I specifically go over the $50 lock out fee, which must be paid at the time of service, or they get to call a locksmith who will charge them $80 or more. I also drive by the place the following day when a lock out is reported to ensure no windows were smashed in.

I've learned to be stingy with my time. Night time is my time. If the tenant cannot have a reasonable response plan prepared to deal with everyday issues, they will not be renewed as a tenant. --173.17.xx.xx

Off topic but I locked myself out of my house one day with my baby and two other kids. Called a locksmith, they wanted $100! I wasnít about to pay that! Hubby was several states away with the other house key like always.... so I took his drill and bashed in my basement window and crawled through. Lol. I got all cut up but I got inside and cancelled the locksmith. Neighbor watched me and asked if I was ok... yep, just fine. Hubby replaced the window with a spare he had. Obviously I would t want my tenants to bash in windows. But I have had only two calls for them being locked out in my 5 years of doing this. And I learned my lesson on locking myself out. I now have a key hidden and my mom and stepmom both have a key. --173.26.xx.xxx

Anyway we have in our rental agreement to highly advise you to make a spare key and hide it in your car, keep one in your purse or wallet ,..Or give one to a very trusted friend, Otherwise If you are locked out, call a locksmith because if we have to send someone out it will be a lot more expensive, also very expensive if you damage a window or door you have broken to get in..

That's nothing Hollis. I once squeezed one of my kids through a very small shower venting window that is about

6 1/2 feet off the ground to save myself a locksmith fee.

Cost: One large ice cream cone. --73.90.xxx.xxx
