End of Tenancy and Breaking The Lease in Manassas Park

What happens in Manassas Park when the lease is over?

At the end of the lease term in Manassas Park, either party can opt to end the tenancy. The property owner could choose not to renew the lease or the tenant could choose to not to renew the lease. If the rental owner wishes to end the lease, or conclude our property management services, please send us written notice as described in your 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 typically create a new lease for a tenant 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:

  1. Month-to-month --- This will include a large rent increase.
  2. 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 tenant to end the lease before the lease term is over. If this happens, Nesbitt Realty tries to minimize the impact of this event on the rental owner. If a tenant leaves with little or no notice, this will surely cause the renter 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 renter .

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 renter 's security deposit, per your lease.
We recommend that the property owner replace the carpet every 5 to 7 years. We recommend that the rental investor paint every 5 to 7 years.

Utilities

During vacancies we will either put the utilities in our name or in the property owner's name.
