What happens in Arlington when the lease term ends?
At the end of the lease in Arlington, either party can opt to end the tenancy. The owner could choose not to renew the lease or the tenant could choose to not to renew the lease. If the owner wishes to end the lease, or end our property 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 producing the highest possible net income. This means that we will routinely create a new lease for a renter 6 to 8 weeks before the end of the lease term in order to renew the lease.
At that point we give the renter two choices:
- Month-to-month --- This will include a large rent increase.
- Renew the lease --- This will lock the rental investment up for another year with a small rent increase.
When tenants break the lease
Sometimes circumstances arise that require a renter to break the lease. When this happens, Nesbitt Realty tries to minimize the impact of this event on the landlord. If a tenant leaves with little or no notice, this will surely cause the tenant to surrender the deposit but this is never a windfall for the rental investor. That money is consumed by paying for vacancy and the cost of acquiring a new renter .
Readying the 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 landlord replace the carpet every 5 to 7 years. We recommend that the rental investor paint every 5 to 7 years.
During vacancies we will either put the utilities in our name or in the rental owner's name.
