Eviction Protection Plan
- $200 per year
Our Eviction Protection Plan (EPP) is available for your gkhouses tenant. It is designed to give you peace of mind knowing you won't be caught covering the expense of an eviction. EPP covers the cost of an eviction (up to $900) should an unforeseen issue arise that prevents your tenant from paying rent in accordance with their lease. We will cover all attorney plus court costs associated with evicting your Birmingham tenant as well as change out of locks.
* This can be added to the Silver and Gold and is included in the Platinum package
- $65 per quarter
This is our most popular optional service. Our team will visit your property once every quarter, change the air filters, check batteries in your smoke detectors, and send you a report with images of how your property is being cared for by your tenant. This is also a time when our Birmingham property managers will make note of any issues they feel you should be aware of with your rental home.
* This option can be added to the Silver Package and is included in the Gold and Platinum packages
Bi-Annual HVAC Inspection
- $150 each
Each year we receive emergency calls from tenants regarding their air or heat. These calls (especially emergency weekend calls) end up costing owners much more than a routine service call. Our Spring and Fall Heating and Air Service can aid in the early detection of problems and save the cost of expensive, emergency repairs. A skilled gkhouses tech will visit your home once in the fall and once in the spring to perform an assessment and cleaning. During our check, we also ensure that the unit(s) is up to code.
Rent Protection Membership
- One Month's Rent (billed monthly)
In both our 2015 and 2016 Owner Survey's, we found that the number one fear owners face is having a non-paying tenant and one that causes property damage. That's why we created the Rent Protection Membership. Life happens. On occasion there are life events that happen to tenants which cannot be predicted through the underwriting process. Rent protection membership allows you the peace of mind knowing that you will be paid rent even if your tenant defaults. The cost of eviction will also be covered as well as up to $10,000 of tenant related damage.
* This option is included on the Platinum package but can be added to either the Silver or Gold
** The Rent Protection Membership costs an additional 1 month rent
Just to make it official we'll ask you to sign a management agreement with us...don't worry, you can cancel at anytime if you're not satisfied because we have a 100% Happiness Guarantee.
One of our Birmingham Property Managers will walk your house and provide you with an inspection report that includes images and descriptions of the condition of your house from a rental perspective.
Your inspection report will let us know if your house is 'rent-ready' or needs a little work. If it needs work we can provide you with an estimate or you can source estimates and have the work done yourself.
Now that your house is ready we'll market it to thousands of qualified tenants on over 40 websites including our own. Driving Birmingham tenant traffic will help rent your house fast!
Our five-step screening process is THE BEST in Birmingham...it includes credit check, criminal background check, income verification, employment verification, and previous landlord references.
We will help make your tenant's move in go as smooth as humanly possible by handling things like, making new keys, move-in walk through, resident checklists, etc...
This is the purpose of renting your house out, right? Our premium rent collections process is efficient and has resulted in a high collection rate in Birmingham.
When you find a great tenant, it's important to keep them in your home for years. 'Celebrating The Tenant' is how we make them feel special and hopefully keep them for life. Or as long as you want them in your home!
From the time your home is fully marketed until a tenant averages 30 days.
Each resident signs a 12 month lease which renews each year with a small rent increase. You will be notified 120 days out from the lease anniversary and given the option to renew or end the lease. You will also be asked if you would like to keep the rent increase or renew the lease with no rent increase.
Getting started is easy!
Either give us a call, or fill out a form on this page. Once we discuss your situation we'll send a management agreement for you to sign. We'll also set an appointment to walk your house and give you a Property Inspection Report.
You don't pay any money until we place a tenant in your home. And if you already have a tenant, we'll introduce ourselves to them and make sure they understand we're your property manager.
Don't hesitate to reach out and discuss your situation. We would love to help you have a great Birmingham rental experience.
This is every homeowners nightmare and biggest fear! We have a five step screening process which makes sure that every tenant we place for you has good income, solid credit, valid employment, no criminal background, and we even talk to previous landlords for a reference asking questions like, "Would you rent to this tenant again?"
Also, our Tenant Performance Guarantee helps give you the peace of mind that you won't be responsible for another leasing fee should the tenant not honor their lease at least the first six months.
And you can always explore our Eviction Protection Plan or our Rent Protection Membership. They are both great plans that will give you peace of mind.
Maintenance works this way:
1. Your tenant turns in a maintenance request online or through our 24hour hotline.
2. Any work that would cost less than $300 to fix, we go ahead and dispatch so that the tenant situation is handled promptly.
3. If work is going to be over $300, we will contact you to discuss the best solution. If you would like, we can get an estimate for the work, or you may ask for estimates from another source.
Also, our Maintenance Guarantee will put your mind at ease knowing we will come back and fix anything that might go wrong as a result of our, or our vendors, workmanship.
We have three guarantees for you:
1. 100% Happiness Guarantee - If you're not satisfied or something changes in your situation and you need to cancel our management agreement, no problem. There are no cancelation fees or penalties of any kind. We want to make sure you're satisfied!
2. Maintenance Guarantee - If one of our staff or vendors works on your house, you have a 12 month quality guarantee. Should something be defective based on our workmanship in the 12 months from the repair, we will make it right with no charge to you.
3. Tenant Performance Guarantee - Should a tenant that we qualify and place in your home break their lease within the first six months of their lease term, we will replace the tenant and waive the leasing fee.
I would say gkhouses has been a great help for me! I do really appreciate how they care for my property and collect the rent each month. I also appreciate the notices I receive if there's something I can for the tenant to make them happier and potentially stay in my house longer. gkhouses has given me the feeling that they are there to help both me and my tenant. I believe my rental is being cared for to the satisfaction of us both.
I have appreciated the professional atmosphere and good communication. I can have peace of mind knowing my house is being looked after.
