Leasing FAQs. Explore the tenant placement process.
We consider your home “leased” once we have a signed lease and collect the deposit and first month’s rent. Once this happens we will email you a copy of the signed lease along with the renter’s contact information .
If we have the keys to the property, the renter will come to our office...pay the first month’s rent and collect the keys. There are some instances where the owner is still living in the home during marketing and we never receive the keys because they do their own showings. In those cases, we will still collect the first month’s rent but the renter will be instructed to contact YOU for move in coordination.
First off, make sure we have your bank information and W-9 completed and in our office! We cannot release funds until we have this information. Funds are typically released 7-10 business days after the renter moves in.
We do collect certified funds from the renter but even so, these funds need to be deposited and seasoned to ensure they are valid so we can then cut a check to you. Money orders and certified checks can be counterfeited or returned or a stop payment can be made so it’s important to allow a minimum of 7-10 days for the bank to let us know that we are all good. We would not want to give you funds too early just to ask for them back, right? So, it’s worth it to wait a few days just to make sure we are good to go.
