It is the responsibility of the Tenant to change the furnace filter in January, April, July, and October. It is also the responsibility of the Tenant to periodically check the smoke detectors/carbon monoxide detectors, to ensure they operate properly (see information sheet on smoke detectors & carbon monoxide detectors provided in lease packet). If the battery is dead, it is the tenant’s responsibility to install batteries. If the detector is still not operational, Resident is to notify the office in order to obtain a new one.
Tenant is responsible for putting utilities (excluding water) in your name for billing, prior to you moving into the property. Unless otherwise indicated, tenants are responsible for all utilities (including water). When we receive the water bill, we will pay it, and then send you a bill for the amount owed. If water bills go unpaid by Tenant, we will pursue rent court action for unpaid utilities. If any mail is sent to the property under the Owner’s name from the State of Maryland or Baltimore City/County, please forward to our office immediately.
Tenant will receive a lease renewal form 90 days prior to the end of the Lease. If you want to terminate the Lease at the end of the Lease term, you are required to give this office 60 day written notice to vacate signed by all tenants living in the property. If we do not hear from your regarding your lease terms, receive your signed lease renewal, or notice to vacate, your lease will automatically renew, as stated in your lease.
Once your notice to vacate is received, we will begin advertising the property for rent. Our Leasing Agent will contact you with 24 hours’ notice for all rental appointments. Within one/two weeks of your move-out date, the Leasing Agent will contact you to set up a final walk through inspection of the property. At that time you must provide the Leasing Agent or our office with all keys and a forwarding address. Please note that if keys are not returned upon move out, you will be charged for a lock change. If we do not receive a forwarding address, the security deposit reimbursement will be mailed to your last known address.
The Leasing Agent will inspect the property using the original Move-In/Move-Out report which was given to you when you moved into the property. Please refer to your signed Security Deposit Agreement for a detailed checklist of what should be completed during your move out in order to receive your security deposit reimbursement.
Keys will be provided only to residents named on the lease. Please have proper ID with you when picking up the keys. If you are locked out during hours when the office is closed, there is a $150.00 charge to arrange to have someone meet you with the key.
