Are Renters On The Rise In Your Community?

19 Nov

Are Renters On The Rise In Your Community? Remember when you first moved in and loved your neighborhood?

Then the renters started moving in.

Now that the housing slump has put a damper on buying and selling many sub-divisions are becoming rental communities. The result, overgrown lawns, too many teens hanging out in the park and loud parties in the “frat houses” down the street; not to mention some driveways with a dozen cars parked out front and people streaming in and out. Does any of this sound familiar?
Thousands of property owners across the country are now renting out homes they cannot sell. As a result, developments that once were largely owner-occupied are filling up with renters who are less engaged in the community and less concerned about the upkeep.

But let’s be fair; not all homeowners are model neighbors and plenty of renters cut their grass, take in the garbage cans and turn down the music at 9 pm.

It’s a good news-bad news situation; renters can bring socio¬economic and racial diversity and a chance for owners to make money, even when times are tough. Some renters may start out as tenants but eventually will become buyers. Now for the flip side; too many renters can depress housing values in a community. You look at most renters as temporary with no long term vested interest in the community which will ultimately mean a swinging door – new faces in and out.

How to protect and preserve your neighborhood

• Many HOA’s require pre-approval by the board before allowing renters to move in. While this can cause problems it does provide another opinion about the people you’re about to allow into your space.

• While tempting, do not sign more than a one-year lease. If there are too many problems during that first year, you can simply choose not to rent to that individual again.

• Discuss, vote on and include language into your HOA bylaws that safeguard your community and keep your community stable.
Rules and guidelines pertaining to renters should be addressed at your annual HOA meeting. Be proactive not reactive. Often times, we wait until the “bleep” has hit the fan when we could have just addressed the situation before it became a problem.
Ask that homeowners update records if they move or rent; you need to know where notices should be sent.

Ask that homeowners provide a copy of any lease to the board so everyone knows how many people are moving into the community – this directly relates to the security of the community.

It all comes down to communication and setting up guidelines to live by.

Key Clauses In Rental Agreements by Bold Real Estate Group

16 Sep

Key Clauses in Rental Agreements by Bold Real Estate Group.  The rental community is booming these days but the majority of prospective renters don’t understand the key clauses in rental agreements.

1. The Late Fee-

You need to have very clear understanding of when your rent is late, as far as what the late fee is exactly. Also, many places will only accept certified funds if late. Be aware that many management companies also have rules in place for accepting rent from multiple parties.

2. The exact term of the lease-

Do not assume that just because you moved in on the 17th that it will end on the 17th of the following year. It may, or it may run to the end of the calendar month.

3. End of Lease-

Have a clear understanding of the lease termination. Many leases have clauses built in to convert to a month-to-month agreement if either party doesn’t terminate or sign a new lease by a certain date. Various communities have different time frames needed to end a lease. Some are 30 day, most are 60, and a few are 90 days before you are looking to move out.

4. Early Termination: What you will owe-

Along with the knowledge of how much written notice to give, you also need to know how much you will owe if you leave early. There should always be a clear ‘Early Termination’ clause in your agreement. Know that very well.

5. Right to access-

Management in most states has unlimited right to access the unit as needed. I know it seems like an invasion of privacy, but you are leasing a small portion of their multi-million dollar investment. Basically, your apartment still belongs to them.

6. Your deposit-

Where does it go? How much is refundable at move out. Is your final water bill deducted automatically? All those things need to be clear.

7. Amenity Rules-

This may be in a separate section all together, but check terms just in case. How many guests do they allow at the pool, hot-tub, fitness room, etc? Understand that while the limitations provided may be an inconvenience to you, the rules are there because, once again, you are sharing a space.

8. Utility payments-

What are you going to pay out of pocket? How is it billed or metered. What are the terms for changing the rate?

9. Pet Policy-

If pets are included, don’t try to bypass the pet deposit. Tell management up front so that you can have a clear understanding of the pet policy. They may have strict areas for dog-walking, or kitty litter removal.

10. The concession/special rate-

What that means is the rate you will pay the entire term of the lease. Are you going in on a reduced rate? If so find out exactly what terms apply. It’s not uncommon that if you are late, you will lose the right to your special that month. Others, if you leave early you have to pay a portion of your concession back.

The most common problems that occur are no meeting of the minds between residents and landlords.
