Long Term Tenant FAQ
Long Term Rental Tenant FAQs
Do you request a credit report and a background check on potential tenants when processing a rental application?
Yes. These are useful in evaluating an application. While these are important, reference verifications for previous residence and employment are important as well.
How do I avoid being held responsible for a problem present in the unit when I move in?
A Property Manager from our company will conduct a walk-through of the unit prior to you taking possession and you will be able to do the same within 48 hours after taking occupancy.
How and when is rent due?
Rent is typically due on the 1st day of each month and can be paid online, mailed or dropped off in our office. A late fee of 10% will be assessed on all late rents. Rent can be paid online by ACH check or credit/debit card, money order or certified check. We do not accept cash or personal checks.
Can I use my security deposit as the last month’s rent?
No. The last month’s rent must be paid on time in the same manner as any other month. Under no circumstances may Tenants use the security deposit as rent for any month.
Can I make any alterations to the unit such as painting, fixtures, fences or other changes?
Yes, but only with written permission from the property owner that is obtained through the Management Company.
How do I handle a maintenance issue?
Maintenance issues should be submitted to the management company by phone, email or through our web portal. After-hours emergencies should be reported through the on-call number provided to you. If the issue involves fire or health and safety, you should first call 911 and then notify the Management Company.
Do I need to have insurance?
Yes. We require a renter’s insurance policy. These policies offer various types of coverage for your personal property, liability, etc. You will also need liability coverage if you have a dog in the unit.
Can anyone else access my unit?
Yes, but only at certain times for specific reasons- in emergencies, for scheduled services (pest treatment, quarterly inspections, etc) and for requested or agreed upon repairs and maintenance. If access is denied or impeded for any of the above services, the tenant will be charged a fee in accordance with the Lease Agreement.
Can I sublease the unit to someone else or move in other occupants?
The Lease Agreement states there is no subleasing. It may be possible to move in another occupant but only if approved in writing through an Addendum to the Lease. If occupant is an adult, they have to go through the application process before being approved.
Can I have a pet?
Yes, but only if the property owner agrees in writing. A non-refundable Pet Fee will be collected for the animal and an Addendum to the Lease Agreement stating the expectations of the Tenant must be signed. Tenant will also have to provide documentation that animal is vaccinated and on a flea treatment.
