ALE Solutions - Temporary Housing

7 Replies

I searched the forum and haven't found much.

I got a call from ALE Solutions to rent out my house for a displaced family who had water damage to their house for 3 months, 800 above the rent I am asking for.  They have a huge family of 5 adults and 4 kids + 1 small dog.  Should I even consider it?  Anything I need to know?  Thanks for your input.

I've seen mixed reviews.  Nothing definitive for me.  $2,400 for 3 months on top of normal rent sounds good though.  

A few questions...

did they own the house or rent?  I ask that because it could have been renters insurance that kicked in for them.  If that's the case and they're renters not owners, they could stay longer than their insurance covers.

What happens after 3 months?  Is ALE Solutions still responsible if they don't move?

Can you directly screen these "5" adults yourself?

ALE Solutions may or may not be a stand up company, but what about the family.  It's not unheard of for people to scam insurance companies by causing damage.  If this is the case you could be the next target after your 3 months are up.

Of course I'm playing devils advocate.  I would probably rent to them myself, but I would need to get clarification first...IN WRITING.

If you decide to rent to them, let us know how it turns out 3 months from now. 

Hello @Patrick C.  Can you share if you ended up renting to them or not and how the experience was/is? Ale Solutions contacted us as well.

Wanted to revive this thread as I was also contacted by ALE Solutions. Similar circumstances. Rent significantly over asking for a short term (9 month) tenant that had fire damage. Has anyone dealt with ALE recently?

We just got a similar call...has anyone committed to them? If this were a scam it would be terrible for us...

@Carolina E. Did anyone ever get back with you? I got a similar call and am wondering people's experiences.
