Lawn Maintenance Reminder

As the weather warms up, RMA would like to remind you that unless otherwise stated in your lease agreement, lawn maintenance is a tenant responsibility. This means that the lawn must be watered adequately and mowed weekly. All weeds must be pulled and removed from the lawn and flower bed areas. RMA does complete our drive by inspections three times per year. fall, spring, and summer inspections are completed. During these inspections, we look to see if the exterior of the property is being properly maintained, according to your lease agreement. If we feel like there are any issues, an RMA employee will write up a violation notice and post that on your front door. We will need proof of correction within the number of days listed on your violation.

Important Reminders

1) If writing a check for your rent, please note that you must make that check out to Realty Management Associates or RMA.

2) If you pay rent to RMA using a check or certified funds, please note that you must put your name AND the property address on it.

3) Our monthly reminder – have you changed filters recently? Changing your furnace filters is a tenant responsibility and it helps ensure that your system runs smoothly and effectively. If you are unsure of how or when to do that, give your property manager a call and they can walk you through that process!

4) Your sprinklers should have been turned on by June 1st. If your sprinklers have not been turned on, please contact your property manager so we can resolve that for you!

5)  If your gutters are full of leaves and debris, you may notice them overflowing when it rains, or sagging from weight, or growing plants. If you witness any of these tell-tale signs, please take a photo of the evidence and submit it to us through the property meld system on our website so that we can issue a work order.

6) Your foundation vents should have been closed for the winter. This reduces freezing air from creating a hazard to crawl space plumbing and will also help to keep your home warmer. But remember, as it turns to Spring weather to open these vents up to promote healthy air circulation.

If you have any maintenance concerns for your yard or your home, please CONTACT US! All maintenance concerns should be submitted through property meld, accessed on our website, under the Tenant Tab – Maintenance Request – Submit Work Order.  Also, there is a “Maintenance Request” link on the dark blue bar at the top.
