We take pictures to document condition. Additional interior inspections will be performed as needed if necessary.

We handle all property turns, taking pictures of any damage, and coordinating cleaning and repairs. We also record property condition prior to move in. We expect tenants to return the property in clean and undamaged condition with normal wear and tear.

We provide the tenant with a disposition, as required by law, after move out with an accounting of all security deposits.
