Avail Lease Agreement
As soon as you agree with your new tenant, you can create a lease or upload your own. Avail Landlord Software guides you through all the steps to create a state-specific lease. You enter information such as rental period, rent, deposit and fees, options, clauses, rules, disclosures, appendices and finally your landlord information. You can also edit or customize your own clauses or rules. Avail has a “Local Assist” function that provides instructions on how to manage your leased property, specific to the state and city where your property is located. Where appropriate, Local Assist provides important documentation regarding screening and leasing, including leasing clauses, advertisements and localized appendices. As noted above, owners can indicate blocks of time available to them for demonstrations. Those interested can choose an opportunity window and book it immediately from the listing page. It will no longer be available for others to book, so you will theoretically not have to worry about double bookings. By default, Avail`s application form asks for information about applicants, number of pets, identity verification, and all co-applicants. It also requires 5 years of residence history and 5 years of work history. You can adapt them to another number of years. I think some candidates don`t have 5 years of owner contact information at their disposal.
In addition, some of my young candidates do not yet have 5 years of professional experience. I decided to need two years for this list. My experience has been mixed. It was easy, for example, to open a specific morning or afternoon and then only schedule demonstrations. On a few occasions, I was available to show most of the day. I created large blocks of open windows available for booking. At the end of the day, however, the tenant who met my rental criteria and signed a lease was someone who came from one of Avail`s software listing sites. Alternatively, you can, like me, upload a signed lease and start collecting rents online.
Avail stores your lease in its easy access and renewal system. As my rental is in Seattle, where landlord-tenant laws are strict, I use the seattle-specific lease provided by my local RHA. In addition, I can make electronic leasing signatures through my local MLS of which I am a member. If I didn`t already have access to these tools, I would certainly have tried signing a lease with the LocalAssist feature of the Avail Landlord software. With the updated Unlimited Plus plan, you get your own marketing page. You can promote your available real estate, present entire buildings and receive testimonials from tenants. You can customize your marketing site to allow your tenants to access so they can sign up to pay rent or sign rental agreements. Owners can also choose to email Avail to former owners for referral requests….
