OBTAINING A TENANT
Prospective tenants will be interviewed and carefully researched by credit report, a criminal background search in 48 states, local law enforcement and courthouse records, a search of past evictions, and we will interview their current landlords, employers, and personal references along with any additional sources we deem necessary. We will also conduct an inspection of the rental property and take digital photographs for your file before and after possession of tenants. It is our goal to protect your investment and your sanity by doing our utmost to secure quality tenants who will be concerned with the care and maintenance of the home as well as being consciencious neighbors.
LEASES AND RENEWALS
Leases are prepared by our attorneys specializing in Florida Landlord/Tenant law at a minimal cost.
RENTS AND STATEMENTS
Monthly statements are sent to the owner and always include any invoices for work orders generated in that month.
MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS
Rental homes must be properly maintained and repaired in order to preserve the value of the property and secure safety issues per Florida law. These factors contribute to a positive relationship with the residents, resulting in less frequent vacancies and higher income for the owner. Therefore, any necessary miscellaneous repairs or emergency situations will be handled in a timely manner. Major issues will be discussed and approved by the owner.
We go to great lengths to assure our owners that the workmen we send to your property are committed to performing quality work at very reasonable prices without fear of price-gouging and without inferior or sub-standard workmanship. It's our job to save you money and we will never waste your dollars or use vendors who operate with anything less than our standards of excellence. Many times a problem can be resolved over the phone saving you even more money!
If your property is vacant, we will help you prepare and ensure the unit is ready to show prospective tenants in a manner that will get your unit rented faster for maximum income. Hawley Properties does not charge a service fee for maintaining vacant units.
