Frequenty Asked Questions
Q: Are there any other fees?A: There are other fees and deposits that apply in certain situations, for example pets usually have additional non-refundable fees. And if the home has a fireplace and you use it, you may be charged to have the chimney professionally cleaned. But all of these fees and deposits are disclosed as you go through the Rental Application and Rent/Lease Agreement.
Q: Do you rent month-to-month or short term?A: Each landlord, called Investors by GBPM, sets the policy for their property. Therefore, the minimum term, called the LEASE PERIOD, is mentioned in each "Details page" and in the Rent/Lease Agreement. After the LEASE PERIOD, your obligation is controlled by the 30 Day Notice, commonly called a month-to-month rental.
Q: How long am I obligated?A: The term of the Rent/Lease Agreement (RLA), called a LEASE PERIOD, is defined when you sign the RLA. After the LEASE PERIOD, your obligation is controlled by the 30 Day Notice, commonly called a month-to-month rental.
Q: How much will it cost?A: How much it will cost depends on each property and your situation. The application fees, rent, deposits and which utilities and yard maintenance you will pay are defined when you sign the Rental Application and Rent/Lease Agreement. The amount of the deposits returned to you will depend upon how well you maintain the property.
Q: What about pets?A: This is a tough issue for landlords, called Investors by GBPM. Many people have pets and handle them responsibly. But a few cause trouble for everyone, including neighbors and future tenants. So, each Investor sets the rules for their property. Some just say no. But most will allow one or two small pets, such as a cat or 25 pound dog with additional fees for cleaning when you vacate. But you are responsible for the activity of your pets, financially and legally. See the "Pets" section of the Rent/Lease Agreement for a definition of a pet and a support, service, assistance or companion animal.
