Rents have been increasing between two and five percent in major metropolitan areas of California during the second quarter of 2011. The national unemployment rate has also increased during June 2011. As problems with unemployment increase and rents on the rise, many residents find it near impossible to keep up with their expenses and most importantly their rents. This causes property managers to approach eviction processes more diligently and with greater concern. Three-day notices are automatically being given out on the 6th of every month even if they own as little as five dollars and if the balance is not paid within three months the eviction process will begin. It is important to be as polite and respectful to residents even when dealing with evictions plus good communication is important so that all parties involved know the steps involved in the process.
