Starting in 2009 we have been investing heavily in the property to create a top-notch living experience for our tenants. Over that time we have performed the following upgrades: new roofs, windows, exterior doors, sliders, kitchen cabinets, dishwashers, granite counters, flooring, bathroom tile, fixtures, lighting, high efficiency heating systems, first floor full bathroom and laundry area, living and dining furniture, updated landscaping, pavement, seal coating and plantings in the parking areas.
The reason we tell you this is the property is important to us. We want to make sure we have a terrific product for our current tenants as well as our tenants for years to come. To help us achieve our goal we collect a security deposit from every tenant that will be living in the complex. Our goal is to return every penny to every tenant when they move out at the end of their lease term.
We do well in our selection of tenants. This results in our tenants taking care of the property while they are living there and in the end…a full return of their security deposits. One way we help them get all their security back is by sending them a very detailed list of what is expected of them when they move out. Assuming there has been no damage to the unit during their tenancy we just ask them to clean thoroughly…we just ask for the property to be returned to us in the same condition it was in when they moved in. If it is then a check is mailed forthwith.
We cannot stress enough…we are NOT in the business of improperly keeping security deposits. We want to return every penny to every tenant…it is up to the tenant to make sure they follow our directions on how to get it all back!
