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 certainly a staple of American life. People across the country converge in their homes, come to private parties, or celebrate happily at large public events to express admiration and root for their favorite team. Your residents, similarly, will most likely celebrate the Super Bowl with a social event of some kind. Precisely why, with reference to resident parties, it’s relevant to understand what can be done in advance to keep things under control. Read on to determine more in regard to the five things San Gabriel 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 turning out to be massive parties that broaden the risk of damage and liability can be complex. How many people is too many when you have a party on your property? Can (and should) you have to ward off your residents from indulging in alcohol? What if your residents want to broadcast the game outdoors? Deciding on these topics in advance can be helpful to you to address and manage your resident’s parties before they ever ensue.

Put It in the Lease

The maximum number of party guests, acceptable noise levels, and more can all be determined in your lease documents. The wording in your lease documents should in very clear terms limit the exact number of guests allowed on the property at any given time, with bigger numbers calling for special permission. The explicit 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

Though conceding you can’t legally prohibit alcohol consumption by your residents, you can use specific language in your lease that manages illegal activities and presents specific 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 definitely don’t want. Precisely why your lease should address any noise and parking ordinances that may conflict with a resident’s party plans, checking they are informed 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 at all times do is to always ensure that your residents have their own renters insurance. If a large party does start on the property, the opportunity of damage and injury increases exceedingly. In situations where damage or injury does ensue, you could be held responsible unless your resident has their own insurance coverage.

Protecting your rental homes compels that you zealously enforce the lease agreement terms. If a party gets out of hand and loud, destructive, or illegal activity is carried out, it’s relevant to act instantly and decisively to hold your residents accountable.
