Mr. Tarzian Reponds


To Whom It May Concern,
First of all, thank you for clarifying the fact that we have never had the pleasure of speaking. However, fair reporting is always critical in communications and I don’t feel that accuracy was communicated here. I would like you to know the rental homes you are referring to on 16th Avenue are rented by a realty firm in Belmar who does the screening and background checks and I rely on their recommendations since they are paid a realtor’s commission for this. Most important, if you further investigated the facts you would have been able to determine that several letters had been written to the tenants about their conduct and other where Code Enforcement, Chief of Police and realty agency were all copied addressing any violation or warning that was given. This is easy to verify, if you care to. Furthermore, after having a conversation with Code Enforcement, I even encouraged them to issue the summons since it was unacceptable for the tenants to act that way and I thought it would prevent them from doing it again. Additionally, in my letters to the tenants (as well as the Borough) I also stressed the fact about being respectful to the neighbors and neighborhood and even referenced eviction but when tenants receive a summons I am sometimes not notified until weeks later and in the case of the summons you referenced that they just received on August 27th, with only one weekend left in the summer it would be impossible to evict. I also take the opportunity of driving by my rentals several times a week and by all indications, as even indicated by your own photographs, the front yards are always in good condition and I would have no reason to go to their back driveways. The neighbors know that I and a few other individuals are there to ensure that if tenants do not clean up in a timely fashion after a warning, we often do it ourselves which was the case just 2 days ago. Perhaps what is more disturbing to me is the neighbors surrounding these properties have my personal cell phone number as well as the cell phone numbers for a few of the people that work on the units and rather than call me personally as I have indicated to them, they have chosen to handle this in a different manner. Also, each and every year if there are any financial obligations as dictated by the Borough for fines and replenishment you will also find there is nothing outstanding. But forgetting about what you have written, I would like to take the opportunity to apologize to my neighbors and remind them once again that several of you have my personal cell phone number and I assure you that if you call me first as some of you have done in the past, things will be handled immediately but to resort to having people trespass on my property to take photographs and snoop around is not productive to anyone. In closing, I would like to bring a nuisance to your attention. You may have determined that the park on Ocean Avenue across from the fishing pier has been headquarters for Pokemon Go and although I have no problem with the venue that they are using, the real issue is the quantity of litter, cigarette butts and garbage that accumulates in that area besides the dead grass at this time. This is something that possibly someone can look into and to at least provide some type of garbage and cigarette receptacles to help keep this area protected, otherwise I wish them all good findings.

    Good tidings after years of animal house tenants in 3 houses? You are very kind to give your personal cell to neighbors to act as your private security service. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t be surprised if said neighbors feel somewhat intimidated by the likes of your tenant’s uncivilized behaviors and feel they need the protection of licensed law enforcement instead of themselves. Saying omething glib just doesn’t wash well at these properties. Maybe, as you suggest, the real estate entity is initially responsible to you for your undesirable tenants. That does not mean that your tenants can be allowed to interfere with your neighbors quality of life.

    Some of Mr. Tarzian’s response sounds reasonable. What I like about this blog is that in spite of it not being a democracy and Dave being the dictator of his blog he does not act like it. Unlike other social media sites, anyone who posts wether he agrees or not gets his or her say. If only all of our elected officials acted the same this would be a much better Country. It would be nice to say what you want without fear of being audited by the IRS, losing your job or being blackballed.

    Tarzian is full of excuses. It is easy to drive past the house when the kids are asleep and all is well. Go past at midnight more often. Private phone number or not, it is not the neighbors’ responsibility to babysit your house. They should not be subjected to problems at all. Waiting for the other shoe to drop is not quality of life for them as you rake in the bucks.

    typical Belmar development strategy:
    1. exceed neighborhood nuisance tolerance
    2. propose new building that requires a bunch of variances
    3. Zoning Board would approve in desperation
    4. done

    Nonsense. When do we start to take responsibility for ourselves again?

    #2 People say what they want here with minimal censoring by the admin., maybe for profanity or sexual references, but if the mayor or his wife do not read every comment, I have have noticed that a certain former councilwoman had scoured each entry and seemed eager at the trigger to blow things out of proportion and twist things around and point a finger. Retaliation is not unknown from those forces.

    It is not the neighborhoods responsibility to call you when they are disturbed or your tenants don’t put out their trash! This is the same stuff landlords have been shoveling for years!!! The town needs to enforce the laws! Why do I have to call when the radio across the street is blaring, and trash is piled up, when cops are walking by or on bikes? Why does there have to be a complaint first? Zero tolerance under Mr Pringle worked, We need to go back to it! And, Mr Tarzian, get a new real-estate agency to babysit your tenants, and focus your blame game somewhere else!

    What difference does it make? The season is almost over? No accountability is what the difference is in the real estate rental market of Belmar. There is a Code of Ethics. The associate has a duty to reveal all known aspects of properties for rent, listed or sold.

    Richies nephew Jason runs the 3Bro’s business for him on ocean ave. Jason has a clear view of whats going on at the tenants houses by going out the back door and looking over the fence.

    Richie, obviously Jason isn’t doing a good job pal. And there are no excuses because a lot of your employees park back there when its busy.

    Another reason why Rich is nervous is because he runs an ATM business. Most of his clients are on main street and one of his biggest clients is Djais. So the bad attention wouldn’t be good for his business.

    Forget “driving by,” why not a stop-by to check on your tenants behavior a few weekend afternoons?
