- Criminal search for any felonies.
- FDLE sexual predators search.
- Credit check
- Employment / income verification.
- Rental background check – previous 5 years.

When all information is gathered we consult with our property owners and share our recommendations. Once we have secured a qualified tenant, our job has just begun. We take care of the day-to-day operations of insuring that your investment will perform to your expectations.
Lease and Lease Execution:
Upon acceptance of a tenant we require a security deposit with-in 48 hours to remove the property from the market. Security deposits will be held in a non-interest bearing Escrow Account. Our leases are based on a 12 month rental term and have been reviewed by our attorney who specializes in Florida Landlord / Tenant Laws. Leases are continuously updated to stay current with the changes in local and state laws. Tenant responsibilities are clearly defined, giving us the ability to enforce lease requirements.
Prior to move-in:
WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Coastal City will conduct a video inspection of your property. If any security deposit claims are made at the end of tenancy they will be backed up by video evidence and can be used in court of law if disputed. Tenants are given a move-in packet to help guide them through common issues that may arise through there tenancy. This packet reinforces some of the policies that are in the lease agreement. We have found through our experience that communication is the key to keeping long term residents as well as protecting your investment.
