Livermore Landlord Liability and Risk Management
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.
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.
Bad tenants are bad risks. Our five-point screening process ensures your investment is occupied with only qualified residents.
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.
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.
Wear and tear or damage? We handle the entire security deposit process, and it’s carefully documented.
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.
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.”
