What happens in Falls Church when the lease is over?
At the end of the lease in Falls Church, either party can opt to end the tenancy. The rental investor could choose not to renew the lease or the renter could choose to not to renew the lease. If the property owner wishes to end the lease, or conclude our rental management services, please send us written notice as described in your rental 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 typically 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 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 tenants break the lease
Sometimes things happen which make a tenant 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 property owner. 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 owner. That money is consumed by paying for vacancy and the cost of acquiring a new tenant .
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 tenant 's security deposit, per your lease.
We recommend that the rental owner replace the carpet every 5 to 7 years. We recommend that the landlord paint every 5 to 7 years.
During vacancies we will either put the utilities in our name or in the landlord's name.
