FAQs

Property management is a service provided for property owners where a management company manages all facets of the property; from leasing, to rent collection, to payment distribution, maintenance issues, and tenant issues.

Our company does not own the houses we manage; we were hired to do a service for the property owner to act as the property manager.

At this time, we do not inventory houses that are available as a rent to own option.

Each house is different and each property owner has the discretion to allow pets or not.

You can always reach out to our office by calling the main line at (269) 312-5152 or emailing the general inbox;Kzoo@american-realty.com. You will be directed to the appropriate person and they will be able to assist you.

Follow the link on our website or go directly to your tenant account and log in with your username and password and submit a Maintenance Request on there!

You can fill out the form on our website located under the Owners tab. (I don’t remember where we are putting this.. we may need to correct the location..) or you can email/call our office at any time.

It’s a mixture of both! We have an in-house maintenance team but we utilize a handful of outside vendors for other services.

You have access to your live portal 24/7. Your Owner Portal can be accessed by selecting the login at the top of the screen. You will have access to an array of reports pertaining to your properties.

Each member of our team has a special role in our company’s structure and success. Our dedicated team members are in positions which best fit their skillset. This allows us to better serve our clients and customers. It takes a team to run a successful property management company, and we strive to be leaders in the industry.

No there is not. We welcome all breads at our properties.

Yes, you may get a tenant replacement! You just need to check out the form attached and follow the steps from there. Sublease Steps

Please reference your tenant handbook and/or your lease documents!

Rent should be due on the first of the month unless it falls on a holiday or a weekend. There is a $40 late fee for Kalamazoo and late fees are applied on the 6th of the month.

Please provide a written note from your doctor. Once we receive that we will provide you with a Pet Agreement Form to be filled out and handed back in. This is an agreement with the roommates to have the animal in the home. The fee will then also be waived.

No. The security deposit that you place is for when you move out of the property. You will still need to pay first month’s rent when you move into the property, as this will not be part of that payment.

No. Section 28 of your lease states:

Renovations and Remodeling. Tenant agrees not to make any repairs or alterations to the Premises, including repainting, remodeling, driving nails in woodwork or walls, using any adhesive items on walls, without written consent of the Landlord. The Landlord will not pay for remodeling, decorating, or any work of this kind contracted by Tenant, unless authorized in writing prior to the beginning of any renovation or remodeling. The Tenant further agrees not to remove any furnishings, fixtures, or appliances without written consent of the Landlord.
