Here are the Tenant FAQs that we get asked often at Florida Suncoast Property Management LLC:
Q. What do you look for in a prospective tenant?
A tenant is expected to be respectful of the property, respectful of their neighbors, keep the property in good condition and be on time with their rental payments.
Q. What is your process once I apply?
A background checks and criminal check are done for all applicants. We contact past landlords to understand history and ensure no previous evictions. We verify current employment and that you have the funds needed to rent the property. We require a security deposit for long term rentals and security deposit is less for seasonal vacation rentals. All deposits are held in an Non-Interest Bearing Savings Account. We expect tenants to be respectful of the property they are leasing, responsible in keeping the property in good condition, and prompt in their rental payments.
We always conduct thorough background checks on applicants to ensure that the people who rent our properties can meet these expectations. We use the Experian system to check applicants’ local and national rental and credit histories, and we verify your employment history and income. We also follow up references with past and present landlords to confirm a history of timely rent payments and proper maintenance of the property.
