Q: I moved in without a pet, can I have one now?
A: Maybe, the property you rented may have a restriction on pets or against pets. We rent all types of properties from single family homes, to single condos in condo communities, to duplexes, four plex’s, apartment groups and apartment communities. Some location will not allow pets; condos have their rules on top of ours. Some property owners do not allow pets, usually based on past experience. We will advise you as to the policy that exists at your rental. If we allow pets, then expect a pet deposit and/or an additional monthly fee. Size, breed and numbers are always issues and your neighbor or neighbors will be considered. The right space for the right pet is applied in our approval.
Q: Do I need to clean my carpet during my rental?
A: You bet. Just like any other part of your home, it requires good cleaning for your health, your family and your guest. How often is based on how much traffic your have. Some tenants remove their shoes at the door, require their guest to also. Your life style belongs to you, the carpet belongs to the property, and you should maintain it during and upon exiting your rental. It was cleaned before your move in and like all other parts of your rental, should be cleaned upon your exiting. The term normal wear and tear does not mean you do not have to clean.
Q: Can I change roommates during my rental?
A: Maybe, but only with our approval and with the approval of any remaining roommates. Expect a fee of $25.00 for the change and prepare your new desired roommate to experience the same process you went through to secure the rental, including the fees you paid then. We do not allow sub-leasing, ever.
Q: When I move out, what do I need to do to receive my full security deposit back?
A: Upon vacating the premises, the Tenant shall pay all rent due in full. The burden of proof of such payment shall be upon the Tenant. Tenant shall sweep out and remove all trash and other debris from premises and leave premises in a clean and sanitary state, lock and fasten all doors and windows, return all to Landlord’s office during regular business hours, and supply Landlord a forwarding address, and all issued Tenant. Tenant is responsible for rental payments until all are returned to Landlord’s office.
