Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: Can you hold a place before I apply?

    A: Rent may be mailed or delivered to our office or paid online on our website, through your tenant portal. NO CASH PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
  • Q: How old do you have to be to apply?

    A: 18 or older.
  • Q: When I move out, what do I need to do to receive my full security deposit back?

    A: We advise that you remove all personal belongings and clean the house thoroughly including floors, walls, trim, windows, bathrooms, counters, cabinets, appliances. All carpets should be shampooed. Gutters should be cleaned out. The roof should be free of leaves and debris. If you are responsible for lawn maintenance, then the grass and hedges need to be trimmed to a reasonable height and all beds should be free of weeds. We ask that all damages be repaired by a licensed contractor that is approved by LREI Property Management.
  • Q: Who needs a cosigner?

    A: Tenants with a credit score of 499 or lower.
  • Q: Whom should I make check or money order payable to?

    A: Make the check or money order payable to: LREI Property Management LLC. Please include your first name, last name, and property address on the payment to ensure that you are properly credited with the payment.
  • Q: I want to move out, but my roommate wants to stay. What do I do?

    A: If both parties signed the lease, they both are legally obligated to continue to pay the rent and maintain the property until the lease ends. It doesn’t matter if both people are living in the property or not.

    If one resident can meet the income requirement, we can draw up a new rental agreement to take the place of the old one. If income is too low, we require a cosigner.

    If the remaining tenant is signing a new rental agreement — and they aren’t financially qualified to pay the rent — you can require a co-signer. If the departing tenant is willing, that person could become the co-signer. The only difference would be that the co-signer has no privileges to access the property if they are not listed as a tenant on the lease.
  • Q: My lease expiration is coming and I want to move out. What do I do?

    A: Provide a 30 day notice in writing (email or by mail).
