How much is does REMA charge for an application fee?
Application fees are $50.00 for the first applicant and $35.00 for additional applicants over the age of 18. This fee is non-refundable and must be provided, in certified funds, to our management team before any application can be processed.
How do you accept security deposits?
REMA requires all security deposits be paid to us, in full, prior to occupying a property. Payments can be made at our office and a receipt will be provided.
When are rent payments due?
Rents are due on the first day of each month. However, REMA recognizes that many things can happen in regards to rent, and so we allow a 5-day grace period for rents due. We make a serious effort to collect payments and encourage tenants to use one of our three (3) payment options to pay their rents in a timely manner. The rent payment will be considered late without exception if it is not received in the REMA office after the 5-day grace period, on the sixth day of the month.
What happens if a tenant does not pay their rent?
REMA makes an effort to collect payments from tenants each month. If we do not receive rent by the due date, a 3-day eviction notice to pay or quit is prepared and delivered to the tenant. REMA notices the importance of such notices and posts them properly, should legal action be required.
What is the next step after being approved to rent a property?
Once REMA receives all necessary funds for the property, a rental/lease agreement will be signed and completed by the qualified applicant(s). If applicant(s) are of a foreign nationality and cannot read and understand the rental/lease terms and agreement, an interpreter must be present, at the applicant’s expense.
How long are rental/lease terms for?
Leases/rentals are annual and property renewals are automatically pursued, unless we are notified otherwise by the owner. Renewal fees are due for each written lease renewal or monthly tenancy beyond the initial lease term.
What is the “REMA Tenant Handbook”?
REMA provides each tenant occupying a property with a Tenant Handbook. This detailed booklet provides information on how to care for a property, report maintenance issues, complete rent payments, etc.
