What happens in Fairfax when the lease is over?
At the end of the lease in Fairfax, 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 rental investor wishes to end the lease, or conclude our 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 rental investment 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 tenant two options:
- 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 things happen that require a renter to end the lease before the lease term is over. If this occures, 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 renter 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 investment
We will have the carpet professional cleaned upon tenant 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 investor's name.
