What happens in Rappahannock County when the lease is over?
At the end of the lease term in Rappahannock County, 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 owner wishes to end the lease, or end our management services, please send us written notice as described in your management agreement.
When 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 routinely create a new lease for a renter 6 to 8 weeks before the end of the lease 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 renters 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 owner. If a tenant leaves with little or no notice, this will surely cause the tenant 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 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 renter 's security deposit, per your lease.
We recommend that the rental owner replace the carpet every 5 to 7 years. We recommend that the owner paint every 5 to 7 years.
During vacancies we will either put the utilities in our name or in the rental owner's name.
