  • Q: How is rent collection handled?

  • Q: How long of a lease do you sign?

    A: Most leases are for 1 year, but periodically, we may recommend a slightly shorter lease term to avoid a lease which expires during a statistically less favorable month to rent properties.
  • Q: How much security deposit do you charge the tenant?

    A: The security deposit depends upon the property, but is generally close to the monthly rent amount.

    A: Monthly statements and receipts are emailed.
  • Q: Who holds the tenant security deposit?

    A: We hold the security deposit in a trust account for the tenants. At the time a tenant moves out, we evaluate the move-out condition and compare to the move-in condition to assess tenant responsibility for repairs or cleaning. Any tenant charges are then withheld from the deposit prior to refunding to the tenant.
