Whether you are a savvy real estate investor with many properties or an owner of a single property, you can have professional, knowledgeable and experienced representation for your leasing and property management needs. No matter where in the world you are located, you control and retain ownership of your rental property, while our expert property managers manage it to provide the greatest return on your investment.
Full leasing services, including tenant screening
Bay Property Management Group aggressively markets each property, using all major search engines, online classifieds, and off-site marketing. Available rental properties are also placed on the MLS, Zillow, Craigslist, HotPads, Locators, and other online sites. We also use other tenant placement companies to help get the most exposure possible for each rental property. Prospective tenants are screened for prior evictions, judgments, liens, bankruptcies, criminal history, sex offender registry, terrorist activity, and credit worthiness. We also require applicants to verify their income.
move in / move out reports
Each property is photographed before and after tenants take possession to document any damage that has been incurred. A detailed checklist is also used, and each room is inspected closely to document damage or irregularities (click on our move in/move out reports to see an example).
We can handle maintenance problems of every kind, relying on our own handymen and a stable of contractors to ensure quality work, quick turnaround and competitive pricing. Our maintenance staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in order to protect your property and take care of your tenants.
We take a professional, diligent approach to collecting rents on time each and every month. Our expectations and procedures are made crystal clear to tenants prior to the signing of a lease. In addition, rent payments are quickly disbursed to you through electronic direct deposit or a standard check.
Eviction services / suit filings
We follow a proven and standard practice when it comes to late rent. After a short grace period (we file on the tenants as soon as we are legally allowed), we begin the paperwork on legal proceedings regardless of the situation or excuse. Bay Property Management Group is well versed in landlord-tenant laws and, when necessary we take swift and professional steps to ensure a smooth eviction process. We handle the entire eviction process, so you don’t have to. We also file judgments in the event a tenant breaks their lease, and there is no cost to the owner when Bay Property Management Group files suit. Moreover, all recouped proceeds go directly to you.
Depending on the state, and the laws for lead paint can vary drastically. Bay Property Management Group will always make sure you are in full compliance with the lead paint laws of your jurisdiction. We will not manage any property that lacks proper lead certification, but we can help you through this process and provide a list of qualified lead inspectors (if applicable).
Certain cities and counties require that a single-family or multi-family property have a rental license. Again this varies drastically from city to city and from county to county. Bay Property Management Group will always make sure you are in full compliance with any rental license requirement in your jurisdiction.
Monthly and annual financial statements
Every month we send you a statement showing your rental income and expenses for each specific property. We also provide you with a 1099 at the end of the year, as required by law.
