Rent Payment Procedures
Rent is due on the 1st of each month, but isn’t considered late if we receive your payment by the end of the business
day on the 5th. If the 5th is a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday; the next business day by 10:00am is acceptable. Payments made after the close of business on the 3rd of the month must be made by certifiedfunds (money order or cashier’s check).
Payments using your checking account may be made on our new pay online feature at anytime but keep in mind that
you may still be charged a late fee if your payment is not initiated by the fifth day of the month. Payments will
normally be applied to the oldest charge first.
Personal checks are acceptable at any time before the 4th of the month. Certified funds may be required if checks
begin bouncing. We will notify you in writing if personal checks will be refused. The fee for a returned check from your
bank is $35.00 and is chargeable to you whether it was your mistake or your bank’s. If you ask us to hold a check
until a later date, we may try to accommodate you but we will not take responsibility if it is deposited by mistake.
We do not want cash around the office. We have a “NO CASH” policy for everyone. Please use checks or money orders.
We will mail you a late notice if rent has not been received by the 5th. This letter may cross in the mail with your
payment. You must pay with a certified check or money order after the 3rd day of the month. After the 10th If rent is still unpaid by the 10th, and a payment arrangement has not been agreed to, we will begin dispossessory proceedings. Once this has started, unless arrangements are made to the contrary, rent will not be taken without the late fee, any filing fees and any other balance on your account in certified funds.
Rent is required every month, including your last month. You may not use the Security Deposit to pay rent.
Using the Mail
You may always mail your rent to us, however, If it is received after the 5th the late fee will be due. We recommend
you mail your rent early.
Bring to the Office
To assure that payment is received by the 5th you may want to bring it to the office. A drop box at the front door is
available for your convenience (no cash please). Office hours are 9:00 to 5:00 Monday thru Friday (excluding holidays).
If you do not pay what you owe, your account will be reported to the national credit bureau affecting your credit
scores and thereby your ability to obtain credit.
Some rentals will be in neighborhoods with a Homeowner’s Association.
All renters must abide by the association rules
Each tenant will receive a copy of the covenants of the neighborhood in which they are living. Any violations or find contributed to the tenant will be paid by the tenant.
In most cases the use of the amenities will be paid for by the owner. There may be exceptions to this and the tenant will be notified when signing a lease.
What the HOA fees cover will be gone over with the tenant upon move in.
Insurance and Fees
All tenants must have renter’s insurance and it must be for at least $100,000 liability and $20,000 for personal belongings. Proof of that will be submitted upon move in.
Any association with amenities will have a pool card or key.
There will be a $25.00 charge for that and will be refunded to the tenant upon returning the key or card upon the end of lease.
There is a $100.00 administrative fee upon lease signing

We use bookkeeping that will allow the tenants to make payments to their accounts. This will be set up with the tenant upon move in.
There will be no checks after the third month for rental payments. Tenants will have to pay in the form of a money order or certified check. NO CASH.
AFTER BEING LATE ONE TIME, TENANTS WILL HAVE TO PAY WITH MONEY ORDER OR CERTIFIED CHECK. THERE WILL BE NO PAYMENTS ACCEPTED ONLINE OR BY CHECK AT ANYTIME
AFTER THE 6TH OF THE MONTH AND RENT PAYMENT HAS NOT BEEN RECEIVED, THERE WILL BE A DISPOSSESSORY FILED IN THE COURT HOUSE IN THE COUNTY WHERE THE TENANT RESIDES. THERE WILL BE A $200.00 CHARGE FOR THAT AS WELL AS ANY LEGAL CHARGES OR CHARGES TO THE COURT.
