What happens in Ballston when the lease is over?
At the end of the lease in Ballston, either party can opt to end the tenancy. The landlord could choose not to renew the lease or the tenant could choose to not to renew the lease. If the landlord wishes to end the lease, or conclude our rental management services, please send us written notice as described in your property 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 routinely contact a tenant 6 to 8 weeks before the end of the lease 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 property 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. If this happens, Nesbitt Realty tries to minimize the impact of this event on the rental investor. If a tenant leaves with little or no notice, this will surely cause the renter to surrender the deposit but this is never a windfall for the rental owner. That money is consumed by paying for vacancy and the cost of acquiring a new renter .
Readying the rental
We will have the carpet professional cleaned upon tenant 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 property owner paint every 5 to 7 years.
During vacancies we will either put the utilities in our name or in the property owner's name.
