Property Management Transition to landlord, tenant not cooperating
I have a property that was previously managed by a property management company, and I decided to take over the property management myself. The transition with the property management went smoothly; however, I've encountered some communication issues with the tenant.
Initially, I sent an email, but I received no response. Then, I followed up with a text message, explaining the situation. I understand that my communication may have sounded like a scam, so I suggested to the tenant that they verify the transition with the property management company, which they did.
According to the property management, the existing contract is valid until the end of its term, which means there's no need to prepare a new contract, and everything should continue as is until December. The monthly payment is due on the first of each month, and I haven't received any communication from the tenant.
While it's not absolutely necessary for me to receive confirmation from the tenant, I am keen to get a response from them. Unfortunately, they have not replied to my messages, and I'm running out of options on how to proceed.
I'm not sure what the best course of action is at this point, and I would appreciate any guidance or suggestions on how to handle this situation.
