TENANT INFORMATION ABOUT ANNUAL RENTALS

You should know we always represent the Landlord. This means we are working for them and you never pay our commission.

If you are looking for an unfurnished annual rental we will be happy to show you the properties we have that fit your needs personally. If you like the property and wish to rent, we do an Intent To Lease form & an application. The Intent To Lease form outlines exactly what you can expect as far as establishing the monthly rent amount, security deposit and additional specific terms. We do not collect a "LAST MONTH'S RENT"! You will pay first month's rent, the security deposit and application fee! That's it! If there are special risk factors or pets, additional deposits or pet fee may be requested. There is a $40.00 Application Fee for anyone eighteen or over. We then run a credit report, background and criminal background and sexual offender or predator and a Terrorist check for forty eight states, verify employment and all income. Once all the information is collected, we present your information to the owner(s) for either their approval, counter offer, or rejection. The owner, not us, is the deciding party. If your rental offer is not accepted, we promptly return your deposit, allowing time for check clearance, less the Application Fee. Upon acceptance, your deposit is no longer refundable. The property is taken off the market, advertising is stopped and the leases are prepared. We will meet with you at a time and place convenient to you and personally and thoroughly go over the lease prior to you signing it. All funds must be collected and be in US funds prior to move in. Cash, cashiers check or money orders are acceptable, if there is not time for a personal check to clear. You will receive phone number listing sheet with all the information you will need to turn on the electric, telephone, cable, trash, water & sewer and change your driver's license. We will provide you with a move in package that includes a welcome letter and mailing labels for your rent payments, as well as information on local entertainment.

We will know each other pretty well by the time we have completed your move in and we hope you will feel free to ask about anything you have questions about. We will always try to help. We sincerely try to keep the relationship with our tenants personal and friendly. We feel that if you have a problem during the term of your lease, we have a problem too. We always encourage our tenants to contact us immediately with any and all repair needs so that our rental properties are maintained in the best possible condition. We need your co-operation in this and appreciate your willingness to do your part.

 

TENANT INFORMATION ABOUT SEASONAL & SHORT TERM RENTALS

We can do everything through the mail, fax or email if you wish. You can see the pictures of the property on our web site at www.gcrpm.com or we will email them to you or you may see it personally. There is a $40.00 Application Fee for each applicant 18 or over. Security deposits on our seasonal rentals are usually $1,000.00 or more; depending on the value of the property, owner and your credit. We will send you a FAR/BAR Lease for the period you wish to occupy with instructions to fill it out and return to us with your rent/deposit funds to confirm your stay. All funds must be U.S. and collected and processed prior to occupancy. Everything you will need for a lovely stay should be at the property.

I would be happy to represent you as a buyer's broker. You probably already know that, in the State of Florida, the Seller usually pays the commission. The payment of commission does not determine agency! I would represent your interests and you would not owe or pay me a commission, the Seller would!

It includes Pasco, Hernando, Hillsbourgh, and Pinellas Counties which includes Tampa, New Tampa, Brandon, Clearwater, Dunedin, Palm Harbor, St. Petersburg, Tarpon Springs, Holiday, New Port Richey, Port Richey, Hudson, Spring Hill, Lutz, Land O' Lakes, Beach Park, South Tampa and the Gulf Beaches.
