Timely rent collection is essential to both your company and ours. Rent is due on the 1st, late on the 2nd, and subject to late charges. Legal proceedings to remove the tenant may begin as early as the 10th of the month, depending on the occupant’s history and the timing of holidays, weekends, etc.
All maintenance requests are directed to our office. The tenant is asked to check breakers, reset buttons, switches, etc. to solve the problem himself and / or to fully determine the nature of the problem. If this is not successful, the proper service person / company is sent to the property.
