  • Q: How and when do I receive the funds from my rental property?

    A: Once rent payments have had time to settle, you will receive a monthly income statement between the 15th and the 18th of each month for your property indicating income, expenses, and the net value for your draw. Your draw is the amount of money that is paid out to you monthly.

    Your first month’s rental income, and sometimes the second depending on the point of move in, will be used to pay leasing fees and any maintenance needed to bring the property into rentable condition. The maintenance department will be in touch, in conjunction with your Leasing Agent to discuss any work we feel the property needs in order to be rented, and we will work with you to determine a payment plan or to allow time to complete the work yourself if you prefer to do so. For this reason, we strongly urge our owners to consider getting one to two months’ ahead on any mortgage payments. This will allow for the above activities, and also to allow for the timing of payments from us each month to avoid falling into arrears. This also gives you a buffer should a tenant ever fail to pay on time, or if eviction should become necessary or the time of year not lead to a quick lease.

    Direct Deposits/E-Payments take 2-3 business days to clear your bank and are initiated at the point each portfolio is processed. To receive your funds as quickly as possible we offer e-payments. Your Client Relations Specialist is happy to walk you through the process to set this up.

  • Q: What happens if my tenant pays late?

    A: KRS lease requires tenants to pay the rent on the 1st of every month, with a five day grace period until the 5th of the month unless the 5th is on a weekend or bank holiday. Tenants are then charged a late fee which is typically 10% of their balance unless stated otherwise in the lease agreement. If your tenant has not paid by the 6th of the month we will not be able to do a disbursement on our regular schedule. We do, however, have off-cycle disbursements that are available to you at no additional charge once the payment settles and funds are available. We will also typically split the late fee evenly between KRS and the landlord.
  • Q: Do you sell real estate too?

    A: We do not help buy or sell real estate. We have an affiliate vendor that could help you sell your home or help you grow your investment portfolio but {% snippet name='company-name' % only provides services in property management.
  • Q: How long of a lease do you sign?

    A: Our typical lease is 12-months but should your property become vacant in a winter month (October to February), we will attempt to get the prospective tenant to sign a longer lease term so that the expiration date ends in the summer months to avoid long turnover time. We will also sign 24 to 36-months lease (with your permission) to reduce the turnover time for your home, putting more money in your pocket - at no additional cost!
  • Q: How soon can you start managing my property?

    A: If the property is vacant, we will start marketing the property the day the management agreement is signed or the date per the agreement. If it is a tenant occupied with a lease, we will simply take over the lease and coordinate with the existing tenant. If there is no lease involved, we will work with the tenant to get them to sign our lease.
  • Q: Can you put the money directly into my account?

    A: Yes, absolutely. You can sign up to receive your funds via direct deposit.

    Here are the steps to set up direct deposit in your owner portal:

    • Log in to portal

  • Q: What type of properties do you manage?

    A: We manage primarily residential properties, from apartment complexes to single-family homes.
  • Q: How are maintenance issues handled?

    A: In general, when a tenant calls in with a maintenance issue, we create a work order and email it to you with a request for permission to handle the issue. For non-emergency issues, if we do not hear from you within 48 hours, we schedule service and bill accordingly. Please check your email regularly for correspondence from us. It is critical that we have an email address on file for you that you check often. For emergency issues, we send out a technician as soon as possible, even if we have not received your authorization.
