Inspection Reports for Door Postings 

Once a tenant reaches an outstanding balance of >$2K, a red collection notice will be posted on the tenant's door. Upon doing this, our agent will check the condition of your home's exterior by filling out an inspection report. This report is available by logging in to your Owner's Portal.

No Contact from Tenant Procedure

When a tenant starts being non-responsive to our attempts to communicate, this procedure is initiated. This process includes: Calling emergency contacts, BGE verification, posting a notice on tenant's door, and scheduling a wellness visit.

For the past few months, we have implemented a strategy to motivate tenants to pay their balance. currently, non-emergency tickets will not be addressed if their account has a balance of over $1500 and on an approved payment plan. TRUE emergencies MUST be handled in order to prevent liability. They are reminded to settle their outstanding balance with our office in order for maintenance services. The tickets are placed in deferred status.

We are on a bi-weekly schedule for all units that owners have opted in Lawn Care Management.

If your property is a single-family property, the tenant is 100% responsible to manage unless it’s vacant. If a violation notice is issued due to unkept lawn care, please be sure to upload a copy of the citation to the portal so that it can be processed timely.
