What we do as your property manager: TENANCY
- Coordinate routine maintenance and repairs to the property.
- Collect rents and fees from the tenants and disburse to owners as authorized in the Management Agreement after any repair and maintenance bills are paid.
- Provide monthly and year-end statements to Owners along with an accounting for all funds for tax purposes.
- As a last resort, if tenants do not pay the rent due or refuse to comply with lease obligations, actions are taken to evict said tenant.
- Periodic observations of the property to determine that lease terms are being honored and to note if any repairs or maintenance need to be done. Deferred maintenance can be costly.
- Tenant emergencies and requests for repairs are handled efficiently.
- Checklists are provided to help tenants remember what they need to do on a regular basis to keep up the residence and how to clean efficiently upon move-out. If a tenant knows how and what to clean, a tenant can maximize the return of the deposit funds and this also helps keep vacancy periods lower because not as many repairs and cleaning will need to be done to show the property
What we do as your property manager: POST TENANCY
- Condition reports are made when tenants vacate and appropriate amounts of a tenant’s deposit are withheld for any required cleaning, repairs, or unpaid utility bills.
- Upon notice a tenant is vacating, tentative appointments are made for general cleaning, professional carpet cleaning, and any necessary maintenance and/or remodeling.
- Begin advertising as soon as as possible once a tenant gives notice to vacate the property.
"This property management company is the most respectable company
I have ever delt with. Everything I needed to be done was done in a
timely manner. The people they have for repairs are very nice. I
never had any problems with them. And when I moved out they didn't
rape me with bogus charges. If I ever rent again I will definitely
go with these guys again."
