Late rent payments are not tolerated and incur a late fee and could make the tenant subject to eviction proceedings.
  • Q: How long of a lease do you sign?

    A: We typically sign a 1 year lease agreement when a tenant moves in. After the first year, we will either do a 1 year extension or allow the tenant to go month-to-month.

    A: The security deposit is usually equal to one month’s rent.

    A: We manage all types of residential properties including single family homes, condo’s, townhouses and small apartment building (15 units or less).
  • Q: What type of reports do I get and how often?

    A: We will send you a monthly owner statement which details all financial transactions on your property during the month. We can also include more detailed reports like Cash Flow, Comparative Income Statements, Balance Sheets and many more. Just let us know what you need and we will send it.
  • Q: Who holds the tenant security deposit?

    A: We generally hold the security deposit because it is easier for most of our owners when it comes time to return the deposit. Although, if you prefer to hold it, we can accommodate that as well.
