Advertising, determining rent, devising promotional strategies, placing listings online and on social media are all part of our marketing plans.
Processing potential tenant applications, including credit checks, obtaining past rental references, and verifying income are the first steps to choosing the best tenants. Our knowledge of discrimination laws, Federal and State Fair Housing Laws, California and Federal Consumer Credit Protection Laws, and the use of legal enforceable forms protect all parties involved.
Owners expect property managers to collect rent every month in full and on time. We offer a variety of ways for tenants to pay their rent.
Paying mortgage payments, utility bills, property taxes, insurance payments, vendors and maintenance people all in a timely manner protects the credibility of the owner.
We log in all maintenance issues, verify that any maintenance needed is thorough and cost-effective, and contact the appropriate person to complete the needed repairs and maintenance.
We record and report income and expenses, to keep complete records for tax purposes and to be accountable to the owners’ accountant or bookkeeper.
An owner statement showing all income and expenses is provided monthly. After year-end, we sent out an annual Cashflow statement and 1099.
We serve any required legal notices to tenants — from walk-thrus, 3-day notice to pay or quit, 3-day notice to perform, 30-day to terminate, to unlawful detainer (eviction) and writ of possession. We have the knowledge and experience to follow through with each one.
We are experienced with unlawful detainers, writ of possessions and money judgments. We will stand up in a court of law, and protect the owner and his property.
We will follow through with collecting from co-signers or tenants who abandon or leave the property still owing money for rent or damages.
