Tenant Application Process
Every tenant is scrutinized through our thorough screening process, which includes background, credit, and reference checks. You are a part of the process, and you will be notified of all applicants so you can make the final decision.
Once a tenant is selected, we draw up a legally binding lease agreement. Of course, we’ll keep marketing your property until we have the deposit. We’ll sit with the tenant and go over all the terms of the agreement, including the payment terms and maintenance schedules. At this meeting, we’ll give your new tenant access to the Tenant Portal website. We take hold of the first month’s rent, and seek proof of renters’ insurance at this time. After double-checking the paperwork, we’ll bring the tenant to the property for one last property inspection so the tenant can sign a Statement of Condition.
We receive all rents on the due date as determined by the rental agreement. Once the stated date has passed, we contact residents who are late. When necessary, we deliver pay or quit notices, and process late fees.
Each year we perform a full inspection to your home, inside and out. These are scheduled in advance. Afterwards, we give you a full report of any repair requirements, safety issues, code violations, etc.
We take care of all your property management accounting needs. We make all payments on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry about missing an HOA, mortgage, or insurance payment). We keep track of all expenses, and keep detailed records of all incoming funds. We make tax season easy by providing you with all the necessary paperwork, and offering advice on beneficial tax deductions you can take advantage of. Each month, you’ll get access to a full report detailing all income and expenditures.
We offer a 24-hour repair hotline so emergencies are always handled in a timely manner. To avoid them to begin with, we implement a preventative maintenance plan to deal with repairs before they become a bigger problem. We do our best to provide cost estimates before getting to work. We work with a trusted network of licensed, bonded, and insured contractors who offer great value and stunning craftsmanship. For larger projects, we’ll talk to multiple contractors in order to choose the most cost-effective bid. Whenever possible, we use our in-house staff to lower the charges you receive. Whenever work is being done, we oversee every aspect, ensuring it’s done right the first time.
We will also give you recommendations for improvements, like utilizing a gardening service) that can be made to get the most out of your rental.
We’ll do a walk-through of the unit, comparing its condition to the move-in report. Afterwards, we’ll provide both you and the tenant with a new report detailing any damages and estimates for repair. We will then return the remaining portion of the security deposit, and provide you with the leftover funds to be used on repairs. We’ll handle any cleaning and maintenance that needs to be done, and re-key the locks, before starting the process all over again.
