Landlord Liability and Risk Mitigation

Worried about lawsuits? Tenant disputes? Security deposit errors? It’s easy to make an expensive mistake, and renting out a Pleasanton property is riskier than ever. Strict new renter protections are in place, and you need to know the laws and requirements.

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

More than a Middle Man

You pay us to keep things simple and stress-free.

You don’t have to negotiate with tenants. You don’t have to keep up with rental laws. You don’t have to worry. We’re here to follow the laws, put the necessary protections in place, and keep you compliant.

Avoiding Vacancy Risk

Vacancy hurts your cash flow and your return on investment (ROI). It leaves your property vulnerable. With an in-house leasing department, there’s less to worry about. We rent homes quickly.

Strict Screening

Bad tenants are a bigger risk than most owners realize. Our five-point screening process ensures your investment is occupied with safe, well-qualified residents.

Fair Housing Compliance

Documented, consistent systems ensure our marketing, screening, and leasing processes are fair housing compliant. We stay up to date on all local, state, and federal laws.

Pets & Assistance Animals

We screen pets strictly. We understand how the law treats service and support animals. There’s never discrimination, but there is accountability.

Tenant Education

There’s less risk to your property when your renters are educated on how things work and what things need. We provide videos, trainings, and support throughout the tenancy.

Worry-Free Lease Agreements

Your name isn’t on the lease agreement. This protects you from the risk of communication with renters that can lead to liability. Residents come through us for anything they need before, after, and during the tenancy.

Security Deposit Law

Our experience has shown that if there’s going to be a claim or a dispute, it will likely happen during the security deposit disposition. We handle the entire process, and it’s carefully documented.

Court Experience

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


High Quality Pleasanton Property Management Leads to Less Liability

Don’t put your property at risk. Making a mistake is easy, even for experienced investors. APMS understands the laws in California. We know how to manage your property without the risk of lawsuits and claims.


Insurance Requirements

Insurance is one of the best ways to protect your investment. We want to know you’re fully covered and we’re also requiring renter’s insurance from your tenants. It protects you. It protects them. It protects your property.


Avoiding Property Damage

Worried about what you’ll find when your renters move out? You shouldn’t be. 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 Expertise

You need to know you’re covered when you need to go to court. Whether it’s a security deposit dispute, an eviction, or a fair housing complaint, you need to be sure your property managers in Pleasanton 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.


Managing Risk

Every investment carries a certain amount of risk.

We mitigate that risk and reduce your liability with our effective, consistent systems and processes that keep you out of the loop and protected. 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.


Safer Renters

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

Safer Properties

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

Safer Leases

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


Avoiding Eviction Risk

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

Avoiding Property Damage

Quality renters take care of your property. They know what we expect and they follow the terms of the lease.


Transparent Communication

There’s no guesswork involved when you work with APMS. Everything is updated on your owner portal, including financial statements and accounting reports.


Tenant Management

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


Risk-Free Management and Maintenance

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 Pleasanton.

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!
