Lease Renewals

With spring swiftly approaching we have more and more leases ending. All leases that have already ended are now in a month to month contract. When tenants desire to leave they will need to submit a minimum of 30 days notice in writing. The contract will end on the last day of the next full calendar month following the receipt of the 30-day notice. So if you submit your 30-day notice to us on April 15th, your lease contract would end on May 31st.

Those tenants who wish to leave before the end of their lease term will need to submit a 30 days notice. They will be charged a $500 fee for relisting of the property. They will also be financially responsible until the day the new tenants move in or until their lease ends – whichever comes first.

Two move-out inspections will take place. One inspection with our in house inspector who will do an assessment of repairs and general condition of the home. The tenant is welcome to attend this inspection. Once the inspection starts tenants have officially vacated the unit and will no longer have access or ability to clean or remove any personal property. Once this inspection is complete we send out a professional cleaner to perform a cleaning inspection. Repairs will be completed and the cleaner will come out and prepare the unit for the new tenants.

New Year, New Changes, Same Company

Here is a list of some of the things that we’ve put into effect:

  • Each tenant and owner has a specific Property Manager that they can call directly for any and all lease questions, property updates, or maintenance requests. Giving our tenants and owners one person in the company to correspond with cuts down on confusion and human error while increasing honest communication. This way, we don’t have to worry about “this person in the office said this” or “this person in the office said that” …it will always come from the same property manager.
  • Prior to inspections, we have been sending out Inspection Letters to notify tenants what we will be looking for when we get there. We don’t want tenants to be surprised when we find something that needs to be replaced or fixed at the tenant’s expense. We want to ensure that the tenant is aware of everything that needs to be done or reported before we get there and discover it. This is in part a response to common requests from tenants, but also a way to cover our backs as a property management company to be able to go back and say, “hey, we told you at least a few days prior to your appointment what we would be looking for and what would happen if we found it.”
  • If you read our last blog post or are one of our tenants, then you know that we have recently partnered with a credit bureau to help our tenants build their credit if they pay rent on time and in full. Too often, property management companies only have consequences but no rewards. We wanted to change that while at the same time giving our tenants an incentive to pay rent on time. We are very excited about this partnership and the benefits it will reap for our great tenants!
  • In the last few months, we have set up an Instagram account for our company to be more involved and engaged with tenants, owners, and the general public who may be interested in working with us. Every month, we do our best to post drawings, polls, welcome homes to new tenants, etc., to keep us engaged with our client base and vice versa. Property management companies tend to get a bad rap…we’d like to change people’s minds!
  • We offer online bill and auto pay to our tenants and owners. This is convenient way to pay rent and makes it easy for us to keep track of payments. Trust us, as much as some tenants would prefer dropping off payment at the office, too many horror stories of management companies losing or mixing up checks have made us realize that that is not the way to go. For those who do not have a computer/smart phone to pay online, we also offer the ability to drop off rent at Mountain West Bank, where they then deposit it into our Hometown Rents account. Trust us, you’d much rather have professionals handling your rent payment.
  • Our office staff, property managers, and owners attended a Fair Housing and Customer Service seminar to receive training and knowledge on how to fairly run our company and treat our tenants/applicants. We want to be sure that we are not only providing world class service but that we are doing it the way it’s supposed to be done.
  • We are expanding! Just within the last week, we have opened up the office unit next to us to create more space for new hires. This is exciting for all of us here at Hometown as new hires means growth and growth means giving us the ability to better serve our new and existing tenants and owners.

As we grow, we will always be tweaking policies and procedures to better accommodate all parties involved. We love to hear feedback from our tenants and owners on what we can do better and how we can improve how we do things. As you read above, we absolutely listen.

Here’s to 2019, a better and more efficient year for everyone working with Hometown Property Management!

Holiday Reminders

It’s officially the holiday season and that is exciting for many reasons; good food, loved ones, and preparing for a new year. While this time of year can be fun, it is easy to get wrapped up in all the holiday fuss and forget about some of the responsibilities you have as a tenant.

This season, we would like to remind you of a few things to keep in mind so that we can all continue on a great foot into the new year.

 

  • Tenants are responsible for guests brought into their home. Should guests damage any part of the home, the tenant will be held liable. How the tenant decides to pay for those charges (demanding payment from the guest) is their choice and does not involve your property management team.
  • Speaking of guests, be sure that we are aware if guests will be staying for longer than 5 consecutive days. This is for safety and how many people are legally allowed to be residing in the home at one time according to state/federal law.
  • Make sure your heaters are working properly and that cold air isn’t coming in through your door/window frames. The cold is not something you want to hit you before you realize what the problem is!
  • Ensure your holiday decorations are renter friendly. To help save your security deposit, please refrain from using any decorations that will permanently damage the home or yard (the yard belongs to the property).
  • Be mindful of noise with guests so as not to disturb neighbors
  • If you are going out of town, be sure to lock up. The last thing we want to happen is any break ins. This does not typically happen, but with being out of the area for a long period of time, it is best to be safe.
  • Do NOT discharge fireworks on the property. Not only is this against the law, it is incredibly risky as you can seriously damage the property and end up paying for it.

We hope this list is a helpful reminder and we are always happy to answer any questions or concerns.

 

The air is crisp, pumpkins are aplenty, and Northern Idaho’s trees are putting on a beautiful show for all to see! These ingredients create the perfect spell for fall and the beginning of the holiday season. In this post, we wanted to share some fun (renter friendly) DIY Halloween decorating crafts.

We will also be including an Instagram Drawing to go along with this post. Be sure to follow us on Instagram and comment your favorite thing about Halloween or your favorite DIY on the Halloween Decor post to be entered into a $25 gift card drawing. If you send us a picture of your own Renter Friendly Halloween Decor or appropriate Halloween costume, your name will be entered in twice. By sending the photo(s) to this email: emily@ht-pm.com, you are giving us permission to share to our public Instagram page. Drawing ends at 12PM on Nov. 1, 2018.

 

First on our list is a cute DIY welcome mat that can be used for years to come! You can find the how-to here.

Light up your space with easy Halloween mason jars.

Nothing says spooky like a grouping of dark, waxy candles – here is a DIY craft without the wax!

Who said pinatas are just for birthdays? A cute mini pinata for both kids and adults filled with goodies!

 

Mini pumpkins are cute and decorative by themselves but no one ever carves them. Here’s a great and on theme alternative!

 

Happy Halloween!
