Helpful Tenant Tips and links

Tenants often suffer because they are not aware of their rights. Property Pro pays attention to the ever changing landlord tenant laws in order to protect our clients from liability. If you have questions about your rights please contact our office at (408) 378-1730.

It’s a common misconception that owners do not want their tenants to contact them when they have a maintenance issue. Many issues that occur around a home do not require a major expense but if neglected, could become a much larger problem. If it is causing an inconvenience to you it’s possible that the landlord would be willing to repair the item. It’s just as important to the landlord in most cases that the home remains occupied and in good condition. Don’t fear retaliatory actions from the landlord. Report the problem. I think you’ll find most landlords appreciate your diligence with regards to the care of their Property.

Move-out

Before you vacate a property the following steps should be taken:

Provide Property Pro with a 30-day notice. The day you give the notice is the day the 30 days will begin. You can give your notice any day of the month. At some point during that 30 days leading up to vacancy, provide Property Pro with a forwarding address and contact Property Pro if you have questions about a pro-rated amount of rent.

Property Pro will provide you with an inspection form that will give you an option to have a pre-inspection done with one of our agents. The purpose of this inspection is for the agent to review with you the definition of cleanliness and for Property Pro, Ltd. to make a list of items that still need to be done in order for you to receive the maximum amount back from your security deposit.

Upon vacating the property, you need to return all keys and any remotes (if applicable). Property Pro has 21 days to return the security deposit. If the forwarding address is not provided this will hold up the return of your security deposit.

The security deposit will be mailed to you. We do not allow tenants to come by the office to pick up their check.
