What happens in Features when the lease ends?
At the end of the lease in Features, either party can opt to end the tenancy. The owner 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 end our 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 often contact a renter 6 to 8 weeks before the end of the lease in order to renew the lease.
At that point we give the renter 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 circumstances arise that require a renter 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 tenant leaves with little or no notice, this will surely cause the tenant to lose the deposit but this is never a windfall for the property owner. That money is consumed by paying for vacancy and the cost of acquiring a new renter .
Readying the property
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 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.
