Q: What happens if the tenant doesn't pay their rent on time?
A: More than 97% of our tenants pay their rent on time. Rent is due on the first of each month and considered late on day 4. If rent has not been paid by that time, we will contact the tenant and then take the first step in the eviction process, and post the 3-day notice to pay rent. Most tenants will immediately pay upon receipt of the 3-day notice. If the tenant has not paid by the end of the 3-day notice period, with the owner’s approval we move forward with our attorney to file an eviction.

A: We manage evictions, if needed in accordance with all local and state laws, and work with the owner, local expert attorneys and the tenant to resolve matters smoothly. Our property management team is licensed and well versed in compliance and other local laws and ordinances.

A: One Key Management focuses a great deal of focus and energy the first week of each month on collecting rents.

One Key will hold off on sending owner statements and disbursements of funds until completing owner bills and depositing funds directly into our property owner’s accounts until funds are confirmed. When One Key Management pays any bills on your behalf, we generally do these between the 1st and 10th of the month, as we need the rent money to make those payments.
Q: Who holds the tenant security deposit?
A: One Key Management holds the deposit money. The property management company is a neutral third party. It's one of the reasons that tenants come to a property manager. In today's economic environment, tenants want to make sure they know that their security deposit is safe. Security deposits belong to the tenants and are funds that are used upon move-out or tenancy termination or transfer to cover tenant charges on the property resulted for tenancy. These funds cannot be applied to normal wear and tear or property upgrades. Funds also must be processed and returned to tenants within the State Guidelines of use and timeliness. Paramount is able to process this and send out these funds and statements by certified mail in a timely and efficient manner.
Q: Should I accept Pets?
