Many landlords do not allow pets due to the damages left by prior tenants for repair on move out (urine, fleas, pet dander, chewing, etc). Large or aggressive breeds (by insurance standards) are not allowed.
If a pet is allowed, .pets will have to apply and be screened through eaglerealtyofnc.petscreening.com. Pet fees do apply and possible additional deposits held depending on the pet score. If you have a service animal or emotional support pet, you can register it to have your fees discounted or waived upon validation of documentation.
Be sure you view the property in person prior to moving into the unit. The condition and cosmetics of the unit is accepted "As Is" with the signing of your rental agreement unless otherwise specified in the rental agreement.
Tenant pays electric, water/sewer, gas, and renter's insurance unless otherwise specified.
Within first 7 days, take pictures and utilize the "Move In Inspection" form given to document the condition of the unit upon move-in. Landlord is not obligated to repair everything on the list, but it does protect you upon move-out in case of conflict.

Life has it's challenges! Here are some services that may be able to offer some temporary help...
It's preferable that you submit maintenance requests through your tenant portal where you can detail your issue and even share photos of the problem. You can also track the status of the maintenance request.
Legally, the landlord is not required to provide notice of entry and therefore may enter the premises for the following reasons: Non-emergency maintenance and repairs, emergencies, and showing the unit to prospective tenants
We will give you 24-hr notice although contractors can't always give specific times.
You are paying for the peaceful
enjoyment to live in the unit,
but remember you do not own it.
You can not withhold paying rent because of the lack of a repair.
Please confirm with your property manager before you make any changes to the home such as paint, fixtures, wall attachments, etc. With that said, take care of it as if it were yours... change light bulbs and filters, keep it clean, mow the grass, clean the gutters, take out the trash, and take pride in caring for the home. If you can fix something yourself for less than $50, please do (that's minimum cost of sending maintenance personnel).
The landlord is required to make any repairs necessary to keep the home fit and safe. That includes keeping the systems (plumbing, heating, sanitary, electric) in good and safe working order and provide a smoke alarm. If the landlord provides appliances, they must fix them if the break.
The landlord is not responsible for maintaining cosmetics. They do not have to repair or replace items just because they don't look pretty or fit your style. Some landlords go cheap while others go nice... it is their choice as long as the repair keeps the home safe and habitable. Some repairs/upgrades may require rent increase.
The rental inspection gives every landlord the peace of mind because it is an opportunity for them to conduct regular entry and exit checks of their property. They will carefully check for any damage done by the tenant to their property. This has to be done to ensure that their property is handled with utmost care.
Inspections are quick and easy.
You do not have to be present.
We will give you 24-hr notice prior to your scheduled inspection.
These are usually done annually, so you may have an opportunity to sign a lease extension if desired.
A minimum 30-day notice is required per rental agreement. We pro-rate the first month when you move in, but last month is not pro-rated. If proper notice is not given, landlord has right to retain security deposit due to breach of contract.
Please leave your unit in the same or better condition as when you moved in. Charges for cleaning, damages and personal property removal will be deducted from security deposit. You will not be charged for normal wear and tear if you have been in the home for an extended amount of time, but you will be for legit damage (this includes stickers, holes from nails/screws, dirt/grime on walls, stains in carpet/flooring, etc).
Excess cost will result in a money judgement being filed against you with Clerk of Court.
If rent becomes more than 30-days past due, eviction can be filed without proper communication from tenant and a plan for catching up on rent in a timely manner.
Once eviction has been filed it goes on your record. Payments can no longer be accepted by landlord and will result in a money judgement filed with the court. Once the court grants the landlord possession of the property, if you are not out of the home within 10 days then a Writ of Possession will be filed and the sheriff will remove you from the unit. At that point, you will have no more than 7 days to work with landlord's schedule to remove your remaining possessions. After that time, the court gives landlord right to dispose of any remaining personal property.
