Good start. Now please carefully vet each perspective resident and do regular check visits. No **** footing when they breach any rules or acceptable behaviour, get them straight out. Make sure that these things are written in the tenancy agreement, clearly explained and signed to say they have been understood.

It's been like that for decades. I don't get your point.

"written". I wouldn't normally be pedantic enough to comment on the use of English, but as your point is about people's language skills you deserve it.
