When a tenant fails to pay their rent on time, RPM will issue a 72-hour vacate notice to the tenant. If the tenant remains delinquent on their rent, an eviction will be filed and a court date will be assigned. Sometimes the tenant will appear in court and pay the balance due which terminates the eviction process. The property manager may elect to let the tenant catch up on their rent rather than let the property go vacant and have to do another make ready. Should the tenant be unable to pay the amount owed within the specified time, the eviction process will continue and RPM will receive a judgment for the eviction. In cases where the tenants do not leave the property after the judgment is issued, RPM will go back to court and seek a Writ of Possession allowing us to legally remove the tenant’s personal possessions.
A tenant who breaks their lease could be subject to loss of all of their deposit. The deposit money will be credited to your account to offset missing rent and expenses associated with getting your property leased again. RPM will waive the leasing commission if the tenant defaults on the lease in the first six (6) months of their lease.
RPM will notify you in writing if your tenant goes into an eviction, if the eviction is dismissed, or if your property goes vacant.
