Working with Resolute means that you have an experienced, knowledgeable partner to guide you through the process, do the legwork and place a new tenant.
Every rental property owner runs the risk of placing a tenant that may have to be evicted. Here at Resolute Property Management, our thorough tenant screening makes evictions a rare occurrence, but they can still happen. And, when they do, Resolute follows up with tenants, issues timely notices and provides you with recourse options to minimize the impact of delinquent payments.
Convenient options that promote timely payments
When rent gets paid on time, everybody wins. That’s why Resolute provides a stress-free rent collection service that enables tenants to submit their payment via automatic bank transfer, credit card, or in cash through through “PayNearMe,” available at every CVS pharmacy.
Rent is due on the first of the month, and tenants are given a five-day grace window to submit their payment. After the grace period, Resolute will contact the tenant via phone, email and text message with the intent of collecting their rent before taking further action.
The three-day notice to pay or quit — the first step
in the eviction process
In the state of Florida, the first step in the eviction process is the posting of a three-day notice to pay or quit. This notice should be posted as soon as a tenant’s rent is considered delinquent, or their rent due date has passed. On the sixth day of the month, if the tenant has not paid their rent, the homeowner is notified and a notice is placed on the tenant’s door and documented for the homeowner’s protection. This notice encourages payment and informs the tenant that the homeowner reserves the right to pursue eviction if the rent is not paid.
During the three-day notice period, Resolute makes efforts twice a day to follow up with the tenant. If the payment is not received after the three-day notice period, Resolute provides homeowners with a number of recourse options.
Options that get your rental property up and running
In the unlikely event that the three-day notice period passes without payment, we’ll get in touch with you to see how you’d like to proceed. Here are a few common courses of action:
- We can hire an attorney to pursue an eviction on the homeowner’s behalf.
- Homeowners can hire their own attorney to pursue an eviction.
- We can continue to follow up with the tenant to pursue payment, without an eviction.
Making the right decision can depend on a number of variables, which is why, with our 10+ years of experience, we’re happy to help guide you through the process to find the solution that helps cut down on stress and opportunity cost.
The cost of eviction is borne by the homeowner; however, if Resolute placed the tenant that did not fulfill the terms of their lease, we will place a new tenant at no cost.
