What happens in Forest Edge when the lease ends?
At the end of the lease in Forest Edge, either party can opt to end the tenancy. The rental owner 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 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 typically contact 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:
- 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 tenants break the lease
Sometimes things happen that require a tenant to break the lease. When this occures, Nesbitt Realty tries to minimize the impact of this event on the landlord. If a renter leaves with little or no notice, this will surely cause the renter to surrender 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 property
We will have the carpet professional cleaned upon renter move-out and the actual cost of carpeting will be deducted from the renter 's security deposit, per your lease.
We recommend that the owner replace the carpet every 5 to 7 years. We recommend that the rental 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.
