Q: How long does it take to get a property rented?
A: This depends on the rental rate, the condition of the property, and the marketing services provided by
the property management company. We will complete a rental market analysis of properties currently
for rent and properties recently rented in the area of your property. We will make a recommendation
of a monthly rental rate that will attract renters to your property. We will continue to track the market,
get feedback from showings, consult with you, and make adjustments if needed. It is our goal to get
your property rented within 30 days. We will do an initial inspection and checklist of the condition and
items that need to be corrected on the property to attract renters. It is important for you to make
the improvements that we think will help your property rent within 30 days. Your cooperation and
investment in your property is the key to attracting good tenants in a timely manner.

Q: What do you do to screen Tenants?
A: It is our sincere goal to find the best qualified Tenant for any property:
During our screening we verify current rental history and verify the Tenant has a no recent judgment,
collection or eviction from a previous landlord.
The Tenant makes an application on-line at our third party secure property management site. We
screen all credit, national criminal background history,
We verify current employment for at least 12 months, and we require a gross income of at least 3
times the rent. We have found that these 3 items provide a sound starting point for qualifying a tenant.
Fast Lane Realty abides by the fair housing laws and does not discriminate.
Q: What happens when a Tenant does not pay
A: The Tenants are given a Three (3) day grace period to pay rent. On the 4th day of the month, our accounting
system posts a late fee to the account. and a Late Letter is generated and mailed to the client. We then give them 5 Days Notice to pay or quit.. We try our best to work with the Tenant to bring the rent current or
vacate the property on their own and avoid legal action whenever possible. We are here to protect your
interest and find a Tenant who can pay if the existing Tennant cannot.
