Policies

Below is a minimal overview of our policies. If you would like to review the lease which our office uses we will be happy to email a sample copy to you. 

 

Terms

Most Properties require a 12 month lease. There are exceptions, so please contact our office if you need a shorter lease.

 

Rent

Rent payments are due on the first day of each month. Southern Classic Management Services, Inc cannot accept cash payments. Rent must be paid by personal check, money order, or cashiers check. We are excited to announce you can now make payments online as well as arrange for your account to be debited each month.

 

Late Charges

If all rent due is not paid on or before 12AM on the 4th day of each month, tenants must pay a late charge of $50. If a check is returned unpaid by the bank, an additional charge of $35 will be due, plus late payment charges.

 

Security Deposit

All Deposits will be returned to residents within 30 days only upon the occurrence of all the following conditions:

  • Lease term has been properly terminated by both parties
  • All monies due management by resident have been paid
  • Residence is not damaged and is left in its original condition, normal wear and tear excepted
  • All keys have been returned to management
  • All abandoned articles have been removed from the premises
  • Management has been furnished with a forwarding address
  • Resident has paid management to have carpets professionally cleaned
  • Resident has paid management to have premises professionally cleaned

 

Renewal Term

Either party may terminate a lease at the end of the initial term by giving the other party 30 days written notice prior to the end of the term.  If no notice is given, then the agreement will be extended on a month-to-month basis with all terms remaining the same until terminated by either party upon 30 days written notice.

 

Use

The property shall be used for residential purposes only and shall be occupied only by the persons named in resident's application to lease.

 

Property Loss

The Landlord's Insurance does not insure residents against loss of personal property on the premises due to fire, theft, vandalism, or other causes. Resident is responsible for, and we highly recommend, Renter's Insurance on resident's own property for fire and casualty loss as well as liability insurance.

 

Pets

No animals, birds or pets of any kind shall be permitted in a property without written consent of management.  If a property does allow pets, a $500 non-refundable per pet deposit must be paid at time of move-in.

 

Repairs

Resident will acknowledge that he has inspected the house and accepts the condition as is at time of move-in. Management will make any necessary repairs to the property with reasonable promptness after notice from the resident.
