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.

We have nothing but positive experiences w/ your company. Your staff not only helped us to easily transition from our previous property managers, but also to retain & manage our existing tenants in our rental property in the Bay Area, without any disruptions. We really appreciate that, plus the timely and periodic input you send us, to keep us informed of any changes. Thank you for all the work that you do!

My man Fernando is the best. I recently had issue with our heater. The first thing he asked me is if we had other sources of heat If not he will arrange for something right away. I really appreciate that he follows up on everything and he is eager to resolve any issues to make sure we have all the facilities running. It is always a pleasure to interact with. Keep up the great work Fernando

I very much appreciate that any issue I have in my apartment or on the property is dealt with in a very timely manner. It is also great that the complex is quiet. It seems that there is a concerted effort to secure tenants who will be respectful.

We had a service request put in overnight and Fernando was on top of it first thing that following morning. Communication is always quick and Fernando is great with following up to make sure everything has been taken care of.

I've recently hired Advantage to manage my condo and so far so good. It's been about 3 months now and I am happy with their service. Highly recommend if you are the type with a busy schedule and do not want to be hands on.

I’ve been using Advantage Property Management (AMP) to manage my property for the past 8 years and my experience has been wonderful to say the least. AMP has the perfect amount of communication to manage & maintain my property, uses the right tools/software to keep me informed of details. I’d definitely recommend AMP for your property management.

We are so happy with APMS managing our property. We didn't want to deal with the headaches of doing it ourselves anymore. It's been such a big stress off of our shoulders. They are really great at communicating with us and being transparent. Thank you Sam. That's been really important for us. We feel like the house is in good hands with any maintenance being taken care of. Overall I'm very satisfied with them and would recommend their service.

Compliment was handled very quick .

In general, the customer / tenant support is great. We are treated very well and most of our requests are handled in a timely manner. One thing that we've not had a great experience with is with the tenant costs for most of the maintenance repairs. For example, we had an issue with a clogged kitchen sink and it was a relatively easier fix for the service professional. It took about 30-45 mins in total to fix the issue and we got charged an exorbitant $320 for it. That was a bummer considering over time and usage kitchen sink clogs are expected and it would be an easy fix in most cases. I understand the tenant responsibility here for the charges but I'm pretty sure $320 is way too high for unclogging a kitchen sink. Communication with HOA related announcements and notices are done very well and well ahead of time. Advantage has been very good to work with and we would highly recommend advantage to other folks for property / tenant management. - Vikas

I moved into my new home today and I Just have to say the vibe Harrison brought was so warm and welcoming. I appreciate him showing me the house throughly and even the mailbox location. To get to my garage was confusing because it’s located behind a street compared to straight access. Harrison directed me properly and didn’t leave me feeling confused instead I felt confident coming in. I’m writing this review because I want to let anyone know if you’re working with Harrison, you’re working with a wonderful person who goes above and beyond.
