Rental property inspections are the best tool you have to protect the condition of your investment home and ensure your tenants are following the terms of your lease. Inspections also allow you to check for deferred and unreported damage, which can get expensive if not taken care of right away.
Renting out a home that you grew up in or recently lived in can be extremely emotional. You might feel an attachment to the house that makes you very uncomfortable with the idea of perfect strangers living there now.
Professional Long Beach property management is something we recommend for all rental property owners and investors. It’s especially critical for out-of-state and non-local landlords. If you own a home here in the Long Beach rental market but you don’t live nearby, you need a local expert to seamlessly handle the leasing, management, and maintenance of that home. You need a reliable contact for tenants and a qualified team of professionals who stay up to date on the constantly shifting laws and requirements.
Each of our properties has its own unique Pet Policy, which is specified in the advertisement. Before you schedule a showing or submit a rental application, review the property’s pet policy to ensure your pets comply.
Applicants with pets or service/companion/assistive animals are required to submit a pet application through a third-party pet screening service. There is a fee for the service (fee is waived for service/companion/assistive animals). The application is available here.
If a pet is allowed, the security deposit amount will increase by $500/pet and the Tenant will pay a monthly Pet Administration Fee (“Pet Fee”) of forty dollars ($40.00) per pet.
Even if a property allows dogs, the following dog breeds are never allowed: Akita, Alaskan Malamute, Boxer, Bull Mastiff, Canary Dog, Chow Chow, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd, Husky, Pit Bull, Rottweiler, and Wolf Hybrid. Applicants with these dog breeds as pets should not apply.
