FREQUENTLY ASKED

QUESTIONS

     
 
Q. What type of properties do you manage?
A. Our focus is solely on Residential Property Management including Single-Family Homes, Condos and Apartments. Beka Management does not provide Commercial Property Management service, as we feel we are not properly equipped to provide excellent service in this area.
Q. How much will my property rent for?
A. Rent value is influenced by many factors including condition of property, location, time of year, school system, bedrooms, bathrooms, etc. We would be happy to meet with you at your property and provide a Market Rent Analysis.
Q. What areas do you cover?
A. Our scope is the Metro and Greater Detroit Area with properties as far as Algonac, Flat Rock, Ann Arbor and Grand Blanc. Beka Management does not service the cities of Detroit or Pontiac.
Q. Do you hold a Maintenance Reserve?
A. Yes, we hold a $300 Maintenance Reserve. This is your money that we hold as a cushion in the event of a maintenance request or emergency repair. 
Q. Can I leave any personal belongings in the house?
A. It is not recommended to leave any personal belongings at a property, as the property will not show as well with items present. In the event that personal belongings need to be left at a property, we can constrict the lease accordingly to account for the items. 
Q. Do I need to obtain a Rental License?
A. With over 700 tenants in several locations, Beka Management is familiar with City Licensing requirements and steps in obtaining same. Many municipalities in the Metro Detroit area require Rental License and compliance is required for tenant occupancy.
Q. What if I want to sell my house before the lease is up?
A. In the State of Michigan, a lease supersedes the sale of a home. It can be very challenging coordinating the showing of a property, as the tenant has nothing to gain by allowing showings. In the event that a property does sell, the new owner is required to honor the current lease unless the tenant agrees to break the lease.
Q. How will my property be marketed?
A. Your property will be marketed on over 20 paid internet sites, Beka Management Website, Craigslist and Professional On-Site Signage. Our full-time Leasing Managers are available 7 days a week to show properties and screen potential tenants.
Q. How do you screen tenants?
A. Our comprehensive background check consists of verifying Rental History, Credit, Employment, District Court Filings, Criminal Record, History of Writing Bad Checks and Utilities in Collection. With the screening that we do, less than 1% of our tenants go bad. This is almost always due to something that may happen after a tenant moves in, such as the loss of a job, divorce, etc. If we have to move a tenant out within the first 6-months of a lease, there is no additional charge to find a new tenant. This is essentially a 6-month guarantee. 
Q. Do you perform inspections?
A. We will provide an annual inspector at no additional fee. If an owner requires an additional inspection of the property, there is a $50 fee that is assessed. We have found that excessive control over a property causes ill will of a tenant and increases the likelihood of unnecessary tenant turnover. The best way to control the care of a property is though appropriate tenant screening and completion of inventory checklist, which documents the condition of a property upon tenant move-in. 
Q. Should I include appliances?
A. Yes, we would encourage including the appliances when marketing a property for rent. By including appliances, it increases that likelihood of leasing out a property sooner and also increases the rent value. 
Q. As an owner, what am I responsible for?
A. An owner of a property is responsible for all debt obligations, taxes, insurance and maintenance issue that are associated with a property. Maintenance issues may include appliance repair, heating and air conditioning issues, leaky faucet, etc. Addressing maintenance issues in a timely manner is key to attracting and retaining quality tenants.


Q. Is the tenant responsible for utilities?
A. Yes, tenants are responsible for switching utilities into their name upon closing. This may include, water, gas, electric, trash, etc. depending on location and property type.

  The decision to sell is tough, I was hoping to keep it long term, but between the increasing property taxes and what I think is a high HOA, it doesn't make the same sense that it once did. If you were the Property Manager for the entire complex, I would reconsider. Please keep me in mind if I can ever act as a reference for you and your company, especially with a military/government client. -Joe C. (Birmingham Owner)
