What am I responsible for maintaining at my home?
Residents are responsible for changing air conditioning/heating filters and replacing smoke detector batteries when needed. You should change your smoke alarm batteries at least twice each year or as frequently as needed. Residents are also responsible for changing light bulbs in light fixtures. If yard and landscape maintenance is not specifically covered in your rental agreement, you are responsible for maintaining these areas. If you’re unsure , please refer to the terms of your lease or give us a call and we’ll happily clarify.
Do I need approval to paint or change something in the home I am renting?
We completely understand the need to personalize your space, but we ask that before you begin any changes or modifications to the property (inside or outside your home), you have them approved by your property manager (Failure to do so could potentially result in deductions from your security deposit).
Do I need damage liability insurance?
All tenants are required to maintain Legal Liability Insurance. Coverage is required in the amount of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00) for damage to both Landlord’s and third parties’ property with the insurance covering the following perils: fire, smoke, explosion, accidental water discharge and sewer backup.
This is to protect you, as the tenant. If you start a cooking fire, you would be liable for the cost to repair this and costs could be tens of thousands of dollars. This insurance would cover those damages on your behalf.
While the owner’s insurance policy covers this, as per the lease, since you caused the damage you would be personally liable for the costs. This type of insurance would cover your costs (minus the deductible).
This is just liability and does not protect your personal belongings. For that, you’ll also need Renter’s Insurance. Renter’s Insurance is typically bundled with liability and can usually be purchased from your auto insurance company.
What happens if I need to move before the end of my lease?
Contact your property manager as soon as possible to discuss your situation and options in detail before breaking your lease. Breaking your lease can adversely affect your credit and incur costly fees. See your individual lease agreement for details or call us with any questions.
What is the process for letting you know I'll be vacating the property?
All tenants are required to submit a 30 day notice to the office in writing to your property manager, you may also refer to your lease for additional guidance or contact your property manager for additional clarification.
Does J&D Management allow subleasing?
No, J&D Management does not allow subletting under any circumstances.
Can I pay my rent online or set up automatic deductions from my bank account?
Yes! You can set-up an automatic payment and never again have to worry about slow mail or late payments. You do not even have to think about your payment; automatic (ACH) payments automatically deduct the current amounts due on the payment due date. The ACH payments will continue until you cancel it. All you need to do is set yourself up through your tenant portal, and you are all ready to go!
What is your policy on pest control?
Tenants are allowed to set up their own pest control whenever they would like, however, you must contact the property manager to see if the owner will pay for it.
