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 definite staple of American life. People across the country gather together in their homes, attend private parties, or have some fun at large public events to root and fire up their favorite team. Your residents, equally, will quite possibly celebrate the Super Bowl with a social event of a certain form. Exactly why, with respect to resident parties, it’s critical to find out what can be done in advance to keep things under control. Read on to recognize and understand more of the five things Duchesne 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 transforming into major events that greatly increase the risk of damage and liability can be difficult. How many people is too many when you host a party on your property? Can (and should) you dare not allow your residents to knock back alcohol? What if your residents want to broadcast the game outdoors? Distinguishing these points in advance can work with you to address and manage your resident’s parties before they ever come about.

Put It in the Lease

The maximum number of party guests, acceptable noise levels, and more can all be taken into account and put in your lease documents. The wording in your lease documents should (in specific terms) limit the actual number of guests granted permission on the property at any given moment, with bigger numbers requiring special permission. The exact number varies, but often “no more than 10 for fewer than four hours” is a popular option.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Alcohol

Although admittedly you can’t legally prohibit alcohol consumption by your residents, you can use certain language in your lease that forbids illegal activities and explains different 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 do not want. Exactly why, your lease should address any noise and parking ordinances that may conflict with a resident’s party plans, determining they are well aware 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 frequently do is to make it a point that your residents have their own renters insurance. If a large party does happen on the property, the odds of damage and injury increases significantly. In the instance that damage or injury does come about, you could be held responsible unless your resident has their own insurance coverage.

Protecting your rental homes calls for you to earnestly enforce the lease agreement terms. If a party gets out of hand and loud, destructive, or illegal activity is rolling out, it’s critical to act quickly and decisively to hold your residents accountable.
