What Can Our Property Management Professionals Do for You?
In a time where economic events often seem to be a bit rocky, it comes as a little surprise that many people are opting to seek out avenues of self-employment or alternative income to pad their household cash flow. Due to this, the rental market is seeing a massive surge of interest, with many people considering becoming rental entities for the first time.

Our Property Management Services
Once you have tenants in your space, our work does not have to stop. Even rental spaces that already have tenants can benefit from the skill and quality of work provided by Local Dwelling through our property management services. Let’s look at what exactly the monthly work entails and how you can benefit from considering our services on an ongoing basis.
For starters, we handle any rent and fee collection, delivering the money directly to you while meditating as needed. We also obtain any deposits, itemization request documents, and accounting paperwork that may need to be filed and keep it organized and ready for future reference to always ensure you are protected and ready to handle any situations that may arise.
Our comprehensive accounting and financial services extend beyond basic tenant care and collection, too! We also provide access and management of city rental registration data, coordinate city inspection times, keep records of your property data, and provide surveying of both the internal and external spaces of your property as needed.
If your tenants need repairs on their rental spaces, we will work to coordinate the repairs with no mark-ups for pricing. We also provide convenient and easy to use online portals for both tenants and landlords to keep everything connected and comfortable during the rental process. Monthly statements, 1099 forms, and anything else you may need from a documentation standpoint can also be obtained to help keep you organized and ready for anything your tenants may request, too!
Sometimes, even the best rental agreements fail. Evictions happen to even the best landlords and sometimes simply cannot be avoided. Regardless of the cause, the Local Dwellings team has your back in the event of any termination or issues with your renters. We handle the messy stuff so you can go about your life regularly without worrying about the ins and outs of processing an eviction or handling removals.
The eviction process can be lengthy and confusing, making for a very difficult process, especially if the tenant fights the removal. Still, we can make it a lot easier. We have all of the documentation on file needed to file for eviction and successfully navigate the courts, including monthly statements and any data on repairs or missed rent. This allows us to clarify exactly what happened and ensure the truth is heard based on facts should the case go to court.
We also work with law enforcement to ensure the property is not damaged and that all eviction deadlines are met amicably, regardless of the terms of the eviction or events leading up to it. Our goal is to always foster a good relationship between your tenant and yourself but, if that is not possible, we are always ready to have your back and make sure your property is ready to host a new client that will perhaps mesh more seamlessly with your agreement, rules, and regulations.
Our team of professionals will file all required paperwork and offer free representation options in court to ensure you have a successful eviction. We will also set any necessary meetings with constables and coordinate on property visits with law enforcement to enforce the eviction, too, making a painful process much easier. We also prepare any documents about make-readies estimates and schedule any needed appointments and work pending your approval to get your property back on the market as soon as you are ready!
Aside from these basic procedures, we offer within our comprehensive program package, we also do have other details that can help make things even easier and even save you money in the long run. For starters, we do not charge any extra fees or costs on sourcing maintenance workers. You pay exactly what you would if you called them up yourself and not a penny more. We also set a limit for $250 per unit on maintenance to ensure you are not scammed or overpaying and reach out for approval for anything more expensive to make sure you are on board with the process and associated costs.
We also do not charge any extra fees for handling evictions and other such areas of lease management. We believe that it is simply part of the process sometimes and as much as we prefer to prevent evictions, what must be done simply must be done. We will handle the heavy lifting and get everything squared away as soon as possible to make sure your property is protected and ready to house a new tenant.
We also do not charge upfront or termination fees. We want to serve you and wish to make you so happy with our services that you do not want to discontinue them. Due to this, if you are unhappy and wish to leave, we will simply file the paperwork and send you off with good wishes. We stand by our process and believe that we are a powerful asset; our results speak for themselves and we do not feel the need to lock in clients when they are almost always content staying on their own.
We also do not charge fees for the months your properties are left vacant. Logically, if you are not making money from the unit, why should we? We only charge a percentage of the rent while space is occupied and do not change our rates or inflate costs. We are looking out for you and want to always provide the best services. If we are not working to manage the property, you are not paying us. We operate on a fair, equally beneficial basis!
Everything we do is to ensure you are safe and stable in your renting venture. We are always ready to work on new ways to help you connect with clients, manage your properties, or collect data, so if you have concerns or requests, feel free to reach out and we can try to work on a solution as soon as we can.
Aside from handling the ins and outs of managing your property, we also make an effort to ensure you can reach out to your clients if you need to check in with a concern, complaint notice, or other desired necessary contact. The client can also contact you through their part of the portal to report any issues and notify you of any questions or concerns they may have concerning the property, surrounding tenants, or other areas of life under your tenancy agreement.
The portal is easy to use and has all of your tools in one place to help you always know what is happening at any given time. You can also access your tenant information and share documents to aid in complimentary understanding and issue resolution. We strive to create a good relationship between you and your tenants by always mediating and looking for new ways to solve problems and keep things running smoothly. Our team is always here to protect your property and act in your best interest as needed.
Regardless of your needs, we are here for you. From the smallest office filings to finding tenants and moving them in, we are ready to ensure your properties are protected and well managed. With affordable pricing and an overall multi-faceted and comprehensive approach to management, we are reinventing the property management game to provide the best possible results to our clients across the board.
