Livermore Landlord Liability and Risk Management

It’s easy to get sued. It’s painful to be involved in a tenant dispute.

It’s scary to make a security deposit error.

This is California, which is known for its tenant protections and strict rental laws. It’s easy to make an expensive mistake, and renting out a Livermore property is riskier than ever.

At APMS, we mitigate your risk and protect you from liability.

Risk Management.

You hire a Livermore property management company so you can worry less.

That’s the kind of peace of mind we provide at Advantage Property Management Services. You don’t have to negotiate with tenants, because that’s our job. You don’t have to keep up with rental laws because we already know them.

You don’t have to worry. We’re here to manage your risk by following the laws, putting the necessary protections in place, and keeping you compliant.


Vacancy is a risk to your cash flow and your return on investment (ROI). It leaves your property vulnerable. With an in-house leasing department, we mitigate this risk by renting homes quickly and to good renters.

Strict Screening

Bad tenants are bad risks. Our five-point screening process ensures your investment is occupied with only qualified residents.

Fair Housing

Our marketing, screening, and leasing processes are compliant with state and federal fair housing laws.

Pets and Service Animals

We screen pets strictly. We understand how the law treats service and support animals. We provide accommodation and accountability.

Renters are Partners

There’s less risk to your property when your residents are educated on how things work and what’s needed. We provide videos, training, and support throughout their tenancy.

Strong Leases

Your name isn’t on the lease agreement, protecting you from any tenant contact that may lead to liability. Residents come through us for anything they need before, after, and during the tenancy.

Security Deposit

Wear and tear or damage? We handle the entire security deposit process, and it’s carefully documented.

Eviction Risk

Evictions are rare. But, if they’re necessary, we’re prepared. We understand the court process and we have our own process in place to manage the paperwork and the filings.


Effective Livermore Property Management Leads to Less Liability

Do you feel like you’re at risk as an investor? You don’t need to feel that way. Mistakes are common, even for experienced landlords. Working with APMS, you’re less vulnerable. We know the laws in California. We have the top-notch experience managing investment properties that minimizes your risk of lawsuits and claims.


Property and Liability Insurance

Insurance protects your investment and helps you put the pieces back together if there’s ever an emergency. We’ll talk about your coverage and we’ll also talk about the importance of requiring renter’s insurance from your residents. Insurance protects you, your tenants, and your property.


Protecting Your Property from Damage

No one wants to walk in and find a trashed rental property after your renters move out. You need accountability and presence. Our solid tenant relationships, annual safety inspections, and lease enforcement ensure your property won’t be damaged beyond normal wear and tear and your renter’s security deposit.


Legal Advice

What happens if you have to go to court? If you work with us, you’re covered. Whether it’s a security deposit dispute in small claims court, an eviction hearing in front of a judge, or a fair housing complaint, you need to be sure your Livermore property managers have the legal resources to defend you and your investment. The attorneys we partner with offer discounted rates that we pass on to our owners.


“I did a lot of research on property management teams and finally selected Advantage Property Management Services (APMS). It’s important to me that the management team focus on tenants, keep current with state and local laws, an expert in the real estate market and leverage technology to improve efficiencies. APMS is all of that and more.”

– Emily N.


Risk Management

Every investment carries a certain amount of risk, and rental property investments are riskier than ever.

We use experience, professional partnerships, and our ongoing education to mitigate that risk and reduce your liability. We keep you and your property safe with effective, consistent systems and processes that protect you. Your name is not on the lease. You don’t choose the tenants. You don’t push back when security deposit disputes pop up. We handle all of it for you.

Don’t Settle for Anything Less.


Low-Risk Renters

Strict tenant screening ensures you’re getting residents who pay on time and take care of your property.

Safety Surveys

With safety surveys, drive-by inspections, and good renter relationships, your property is protected, safe, and ready to rent.

Stronger Leases

Customized lease agreements that are legally compliant in California protect you from surprise claims.


Zero Evictions

We’ve never had to evict a tenant placed by APMS for nonpayment of rent. It never gets to that point when we manage your home.

Preventing Damage

The tenants we place will take care of your property. They know what we expect and they follow the terms of the lease.



You know what we know when you work with APMS. Everything is updated on your owner portal, including financial statements and accounting reports.


Livermore Tenant Management

Most disputes begin with renters who don’t understand their responsibilities. We avoid this miscommunication by managing renter relationships proactively.


Risk-Free Property Management

Partnering with APMS means not having to worry. Our in-house leasing and maintenance department reduces any of the fear that often comes with owning rental property in Livermore.

Advantage Property Management Services has provided outstanding and great service to me as a property owner since switching over from another management company mid-way through 2016. They are highly professional, provide timely and rapid responses to all questions and issues, they have procured an excellent tenant (who they are there for when needed as well), and they have an excellent fee structure. If you are considering hiring professional property management services from the owner side, you would do well to give strong consideration in your decision making to hiring Advantage Property Management Services.

Our heater went out yesterday, and Fernando helped us get it back to working immediately today. He even provided a portable heater while we waited for the repair to be done. This is one of many requests he has fulfilled for us, and we truly appreciate his quick responsiveness. Fernando is kind and professional, and we highly recommend his service.

Very professional and competent property managers. Sam was my first contact point at the firm and was just amazing. Very patient, took the time to understand my needs and questions and answered them in great detail. No pushing or rush to sign the contract just a very comfortable and reassuring experience. After my house was rented she took the time to explain each and every feature on the portal and the owner statement to ensure I understood everything perfectly. Michelle was great as well, she kept in touch with me while my house was being made rental ready, always responded to my questions in a detailed and clear manner and got the property rented quickly and in line with their policies. Given the quality of the people here and their business I strongly recommend them.

We’ve been long time renters but never had any experience renting through a property management company. Harrison was fantastic! Prompt in responses & welcoming from the moment we inquired. We’ve been at our location for about a month & the quick fixes we needed were handled within 24 hours. Great experience thus far!

I have lived at the Hayes Avenue apartments in Livermore for three years. I continue to feel at home here with good neighbors, clean, pleasant grounds, & a cozy apartment. Management continues to keep my apartment & issues on the grounds taken care of. I could not be happier!
