We do have a contract with him till February,2012.But we want to get the house rented right now.We could ask our present agent to list for us.
How much will he charge? Is it 10% of the rental rate?
Everything the Inspector had on his list we had taken care of.Nothing major.And we also had a Lead Inspection done less than a year ago and he found no lead.We have the report.
And also we tested for Radon and it was clear.
We also want to run a credit check.I've heard it's a good idea.
I want my tenants to carry renters insurance at full liability levels, so that if they have a party and a guest slips, their insurance will cover it. I like to do credit checks, and I would check to see what local regulations affect you. You will have to provide them with a lead-based paint disclosure, for example.
All the best,
He has done very minimal to sell the place.I don't see him putting himself out to really get the house rented to suitable tenants.Can we have one realtor selling the house and another handling the rental part of it? Is that totally unheard of?
You will then have final interview to determine if you are comfortable that this is the correct tenant for you and your property.
