"I used to manage my own property for years until I
services of Humboldt Property Management. I was always afraid
my property over to a management company for fear that it would become
lost in the shuffle, but this certainly has not been the case as they
have been very attentive to all of my needs. Since I do not
deal with any of the day to day management issues it has freed up
of my time to do other things. My vacancy rate has improved
dramatically, while my relative operating costs have declined in real
dollar terms. I also appreciate the fact that all of the management
fees are fully tax deductable. I highly reccomend their services
live and work outside the country. Without the services of Humboldt
Property Management I would not be able to run my property.
provide clear concise accounting, keep the property well maintained,
keep rents at current market levels. I would recommend them
who owns property in Humboldt county."

do all showings to prospective tenants in person. If the tenant decides
that they would like to apply for the property then they fill out an
application. There are three steps we take in processing the application.
First we review their rental history and call previous landlords for
information on their tenancies asking questions such as do they pay
their rent on time, were there any noise or behavioral problems and
whether they did any damage to the unit. Second, we verify their employment
and income so that we can be confident that they will be able to pay
their rent. Lastly, we run a credit check on all prospective tenants.
By doing all of these things we can be reasonably sure how a tenant
will act before we put them into a rental unit. Of course you as owner
of the property can have the final say on any tenant selection matters.
rental laws these days are slanted in favor of the tenant. This being
the case we use very clear and concise forms for our contracts which
are approved by the California association of Realtors.
the rental agreement is signed we have the tenant pay the first months
pro-rated rent and the security deposit equal to one months rent plus
$100. We do not recommend charging a last month rent because that is
all that it can be used for. If an owner wants to collect more monies
up front we recommend that they charge a higher security deposit therefore
being able to use it for any damages which were incurred by the tenant
and not just rent.
and Move-Out Inspections
complete walk through is made of the property with the tenant at move
in to verify any pre-existing conditions then the same is done at move
out to determine if there are any charges to the security deposit. The
tenant signs off on both inspections so that there can be no doubt as
to the move in and move out condition of the property.
are constantly keeping up to date on current market rent levels. We're
continually reviewing all our properties to make sure that the rent
levels remain consistent with the current market trends therefore maximizing
the income on your property.
Collection of Rents
collect all rent monies from the tenant in the beginning of the month.
Rent is due on the first and if it is not paid by the fifth then a late
charge is assessed to them. We will serve three-day notices to pay rent
or quit to the tenants if the rent becomes delinquent. We are constantly
reviewing late rent rolls to see who has not paid their rent.
provide a complete financial accounting to our owners each month. This
report will detail the daily activity of the account along with a complete
overview of all receipts and expenses for the month. At the owners option
we can pay all of the property bills from the operating account of the
property including mortgages, taxes and insurance. By paying all of
the bills through the account you will receive a very easy to read year-end
statement detailing all income and expenses for the year which is great
for your personal taxes. Also please note that all of our fees are fully
