• Rent Collection
All rent is due
on the 1st of each month and is considered late if received after the
3rd of the month. Late notices are sent on the 4th and removal proceedings
are initiated if the tenant does not make immediate arrangements for
rent payment. We feel that the collection of rent is one of our most
important functions of managing your property. Self addressed labels
are provided to the tenant for ease in making payments.
• Mortgage Payments
If you wish, we
will make the mortgage payments (as well as homeowner association payments
and other relevant property service payments) for you. Simply supply
us with the necessary mortgage payment cards or coupons provided by
your mortgage company or homeowners association. Payments can be deducted
from your account balance automatically on a monthly basis.
If your property
has a large, consistently negative cash-flow each month, arrangements
are needed to keep an additional minimum balance amount in the account. Back to Top
affecting your account balance is recorded and explained in detail.
Our computerized accounting system enables you to see exactly what has
transpired with your property on a monthly basis.
Copies of all work
orders and receipts are kept on file throughout the year. We will be
happy to provide duplicate copies of this information at the end of
the year to help you with your tax preparations.
In addition to the
monthly statements we also provide a complete account summary at the
end of the year. This shows you each accounting transaction posted on
your property during the year: i.e. total rent received, total mortgage
payments made, total maintenance expenses, etc. These statements are
specially designed to simplify the year-end tax preparation job for
you or your accountant.
Our monthly management
fee is payable when the rent payment is received. It is automatically
deducted from your account at the time the rent payment is posted. However,
since one of our jobs is to keep your property occupied we will not
deduct the monthly management fee if your property is vacant. We do
not charge a monthly minimum. Back to Top
We want good tenants
just as much as you do! We pride ourselves in the quality of tenants
we are able to attract. Our extensive tenant screening and credit investigations
help ensure this.
Vacancies are expensive
for both of us. We make every effort to keep our vacancies to a minimum.
Our aggressive marketing techniques allows your property to be presented
to the largest possible market in the shortest possible time.
Applicants are required
to complete a rental application and to provide credit information and
references. As members of the 3 major Credit Bureaus, we run a total credit check
on all prospective tenants. In addition, we report any delinquencies
to the bureau! This has proven to be extremely effective in stopping
Once a tenant's
application has been approved, appointments are made to approve the
actual lease agreement. We review the lease thoroughly with the tenant.
This gives us a chance to answer any questions and to carefully explain
the tenants responsibilities as well as our company's policies and procedures.
This attention to the tenants needs greatly reduces misunderstandings
and eliminates many potential problems before they are problems. A copy
of the lease agreement will always be sent to you upon execution.
We undertake a move-in
inspection with the new tenant using the property condition report.
We find this helps develop a good working relationship with the new
tenant and gives us one more opportunity to encourage our tenants to
take pride in their home. Additionally, we video tape the condition of
the property before and after each tenant.
Once again, we want
good tenants just as much as you do! We pride ourselves in the quality
of tenants we are able to attract. Back to Top
For additional protection,
appropriate security deposits are always collected upon completion of
a rental application by a prospective tenant. Amount of deposits are
based on the monthly rental rate and the credit worthiness of the tenant.
Applicants with pets are required to pay an additional pet deposit if
a pet is approved by the owner.
All deposits are
maintained in a trust checking account as required by state real estate
regulations until they are either refunded to the tenant upon the successful
check-out inspection or are forfeited to cover damages caused by lease
• Property Inspections
Our main job is to protect your investment property. We do this in two different ways.
First we make frequent drive-by inspection tours of your property. In
addition, we make regular preventive maintenance inspections of the
interior of the property. It is stated in the tenants lease agreement
that we have the right to make routine announced inspections. Tenants
are always notified in writing of pending property inspections. Inspections
are conducted with the tenant present, using the property condition
report that was executed by the tenant upon move-in. We compare for
discrepancies, missing items, and any damage. At the same time we also
check for preventive maintenance items.
San Diego Professional
Property Managers conducts routine inspections, and tenants who are
doing a good job receive a letter thanking them for their time and the
care taken in maintaining their home. Tenants who are doing a poor job
are also notified, and then we follow up with a second inspection ten
(10) days after the tenant has received the failure report. If the tenant
has not shown good faith by providing proper maintenance or making requested
repairs we will begin proceedings to correct the problem at the tenants
expense. Back to Top
Repairs and Maintenance Services
Timely and competent
maintenance is the key to protecting your investment. Our goal is to
provide you with this important service at a reasonable price using
only qualified personal.
All repair and maintenance
services are performed by independent, outside vendors and contractors,
not by company employees. Each has been selected because of their ability
to provide the best possible service at the best price.
You reserve the
right to schedule and control any or all repair and maintenance responsibilities
if you desire.
Routine repair and
maintenance will be performed as needed and will be based on urgency
and importance. For any major job, we usually obtain written estimates
from three different companies, notify you, and obtain your approval
before we proceed.
We ensure the quality
of the work performed by making spot checks and follow up inspections.
You are further protected because each job is fully documented in writing
and supported with receipts. Back
