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 part of American life. Across the country, people come together in their homes, hold private parties, or celebrate in public events to cheer for their favorite team. Your residents are also likely to celebrate the Super Bowl with an event of some sort. This is why it is important to know in advance what can be done during resident parties to keep things under control. These are the five things Conroe 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

You will want to keep your resident’s Super Bowl parties from becoming big affairs if you want to avoid the risk of damage and liability. How many people would be considered too many during a party on your property? Can you impose restrictions on alcohol consumption on your residents? Will your residents be allowed to broadcast the game outdoors? It will help a lot if you decide on these questions in advance so you can address and manage your resident’s parties even before they happen.

Put It in the Lease

The maximum number of guests, tolerable noise levels, and other things can be addressed in your lease documents. Limit the number of guests you are allowing on the property at any given time by explicitly stating this in your lease documents. Most leases stipulate “no more than 10 for fewer than four hours”.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Alcohol

You cannot legally prohibit the consumption of alcohol on your property, however, you can use specific language in your lease to address illegal activities and lay out the consequences your residents will face if they allow such activity on your rental property.

Noise and Public Nuisance Ordinances

Excessive noise and other party-related events may become a public nuisance and embroil you into an unnecessary legal tangle. To address this, include in your lease any noise and parking ordinances that may conflict with a resident’s party plans. Make sure they are informed of any restrictions on the allowed hours and volume of game broadcasts and the maximum number of visitors’ cars.

Renters Insurance and Renters Legal Liability

You should also make sure that your residents have their own renters insurance. If they do host a large party on the property, the possibility of damage and injury increases considerably. If your resident does not have their own insurance coverage and damage or injury does occur, you could be held liable.

Diligently enforcing the lease agreement terms helps protect your rental homes. It is important that you act promptly and decisively to hold your residents accountable should a party get out of hand and loud, destructive, or any illegal activity happen.
