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 rental investor 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 rental management services, please send us written notice as described in your rental management agreement.
When we don't receive such notice, we will strive to make choices that will keep your property producing the highest possible net income. This means that we will often create a new lease for a renter 6 to 8 weeks before the end of the lease in order to renew the lease.
At that point we give the renter two options:
- Month-to-month --- This will include a large rent increase.
- Renew the lease --- This will lock the property up for another year with a small rent increase.
When renters break the lease
Sometimes things happen which make a renter to end the lease before the lease term is over. When this occures, Nesbitt Realty tries to minimize the impact of this event on the owner. If a renter leaves with little or no notice, this will surely cause the renter to lose the deposit but this is never a windfall for the property owner. 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 tenant 's security deposit, per your lease.
We recommend that the property 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.
