FULL LEASING SERVICES. Pointer Ridge Management aggressively markets each property, using all major search engines, online classifieds and off-site marketing. We also use other tenant placement companies to help get the most exposure possible for each property. Prospective tenants are screened for prior evictions, judgments, liens, bankruptcies, criminal history, sex offender registry, terrorist activity, credit worthiness, & income verification. In addition, we follow all federal and state regulations to ensure you are in full compliance.
MOVE IN/MOVE OUT REPORTS. Each property is photographed before and after tenants take possession to document any damage that has been incurred. A detailed checklist is also used, and each room is inspected closely to document damage or irregularities.
OFFICE STAFF. We provide an office staff available to take calls, texts and emails 24 hours a day, seven days a week in order to address any concerns.
FAILURE TO PAY RENT. We follow a proven and standard practice when it comes to late rent. After a five-day grace period, we begin the paperwork on legal proceedings regardless of the situation or excuse.
FAILURE TO PAY RENT PERSONAL SERVICE. When we file for failure to pay rent, we’re only asking the court for possession. A money judgment allows the landlord to request unpaid rent from a tenant. In order to get to this point, the tenant must have received personal service. We can serve your tenants to obtain a money judgment and start the collection process.
MARYLAND LEAD INSPECTION. Any property built before 1978 must have a lead certification administered before the property can be rented. We will coordinate the lead inspection process with our lead inspectors to obtain your lead certificate.
MAINTENANCE. We can handle maintenance problems of every kind, relying on our own handymen and a stable of contractors to ensure quality work, quick turnaround and competitive pricing. Our maintenance staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in order to protect your property and take care of your tenants.
RENT COLLECTION. We take a professional, diligent approach to collecting rents on time each and every month. Our expectations and procedures are made crystal clear to tenants prior to the signing of a lease. In addition, rent payments are quickly disbursed to you through electronic direct deposit or a standard check.
RENTAL REGISTRATION. New laws require all rental properties to be registered with the appropriate jurisdiction. In Baltimore City, this involves a City inspector to inspect the property and issue a use and occupancy certificate. But Baltimore, Prince George’s and Anne Arundel Counties require that a licensed inspector examine the property prior to issuing a rental license. Each jurisdiction is a little different. We can assist you with this process and recommend inspectors.
TENANT BACKGROUND CHECKS. We have the resources to provide a comprehensive background check on applicants. We check for credit, criminal and eviction history.
ROUTINE INSPECTIONS. We inspect property interiors and exteriors on a regular basis to ensure they are being well maintained by tenants. We will keep you informed of any concerns with the property and/or tenants.
PROPERTY PORTAL. Pointer Ridge Management provides all landlords with an online property portal where you can view and download all documents related to your property. This includes the lease, financial statements, inspection reports and any other pertinent information. Tenants also receive their own accounts where they can view and download documents and pay online.
