The Rent-to-Own Move-in Process

The Rent-to-Own Move-in Process

Property Management

After closing, the property management company becomes your point of contact. This team works with you to handle rent and utility payments, property maintenance, and everything. During the inspection, the property management company identifies if a home does not meet safety standards and completes necessary repairs to ensure a safe and functional home. They prepare the house for move-in, which includes approved renovation requests and basic cleaning. Before moving in, you are introduced to a Welcome.
Email that includes essential information and a guide to moving in. On the move-in morning, you will receive instructions on accessing the keys. You can now access the convenient online Resident Portal to make payments, submit maintenance requests, and contact your property management team.

Homeowner’s Associations and Municipalities

Your home may be located within a Homeowner’s Association (HOA) and municipality that makes and enforces rules for the properties and its residents to ensure the neighborhood is at its best. Please familiarize yourself with HOA and municipality rules and regulations. Common codes include standards on noise, landscaping, parking, vehicle types, pets, trash bins, and exterior storage. We recommend regularly reviewing the policies of your HOA and municipality. We provide a copy of the rules and regulations in your Resident Portal to view anytime. They can also be found on the HOA website or local county records.

We are happy to pay monthly assessments and encourage you to take advantage of the amenities offered by your HOA. We ask that you cover the charge if a key fob is required.

Failure to abide by HOA and the municipality’s rules and regulations will result in a violation. If this occurs, you will be responsible for correcting any issues. Fines assessed by HOAs and municipalities deemed a resident responsibility will be charged to you to your Resident Portal during your Lease term.
