What happens in Port Royal when the lease ends?
At the end of the lease term in Port Royal, either party can opt to end the tenancy. The rental owner could choose not to renew the lease or the renter could choose to not to renew the lease. If the owner wishes to end the lease, or conclude our rental management services, please send us written notice as described in your property management agreement.
If we don't receive such notice, we will strive to make choices that will keep your rental property producing the highest possible net income. This means that we will usually contact a tenant 6 to 8 weeks before the end of the lease term in order to renew the lease.
At that point we give the tenant two choices:
- Month-to-month --- This will include a large rent increase.
- Renew the lease --- This will lock the rental property up for another year with a small rent increase.
When renters break the lease
Sometimes circumstances arise which make a renter to break the lease. If this happens, Nesbitt Realty tries to minimize the impact of this event on the rental investor. If a renter leaves with little or no notice, this will surely cause the tenant to lose the deposit but this is never a windfall for the landlord. That money is consumed by paying for vacancy and the cost of acquiring a new tenant .
Readying the rental property
We will have the carpet professional cleaned upon renter move-out and the actual cost of carpeting will be deducted from the renter 's security deposit, per your lease.
We recommend that the owner replace the carpet every 5 to 7 years. We recommend that the property owner paint every 5 to 7 years.
During vacancies we will either put the utilities in our name or in the rental owner's name.
