What do property management companies in Frederick County do?

If this is your first-time considering hiring a property manager, you might want to understand more about what exactly property managers do.  If this handy reference doesn't answer all your questions, we're always will to provide more information.

Collect Rents

Nesbitt Realty deposits funds from rent into an escrow account and from that account we disburse funds to pay bills, income to the property owner and fees to the rental property manager.

Keep Records

Nesbitt Realty keeps an accounting of all money and receipts. We send monthly statements to the landlord and at the end of the year we prepare a 1099 tax document and an annual statement for tax preparation. These records are also available electronically if you prefer.

Deal with the Association

When necessary, we deal with homeowner's association (or condo association). If the tenant is in violation of HOA/COA covenants, we provide written notice to your renter and take steps to put the tenant in compliance.  We keep you apprised of notices and required actions.

Legal Compliance

Nesbitt Realty ensures that your rental property complies with state laws, local Frederick County ordinances, licensing requirements, association rules, Fair Housing laws, insurance requirements, IRS requirements.

Manage Maintenance

Nesbitt Realty manages and dispatches handymen when needed. We strive to have work done in a prompt manner at a price and quality acceptable to the real estate investor.

Inspections

Nesbitt Realty inspects the property at the time of move-in at the time of move-out and from time-to-time during tenancy.

Provide a Level of Separation

This is the one duty that no landlord can perform. A level of separation ensures professionalism is always maintained and personal feelings do not enter into the equation. Nesbitt Realty manages tenant relations including maintenance requests, late fee notices. We deal with a laundry list of tenant problems:

  • unauthorized guests, unauthorized pets,
  • parking issues,
  • tenant cleanliness,
  • noise violations,
  • neighbor complaints, etc.

If necessary, we manage the process of prosecuting actions to evict Tenants.
