Payment of Rent must be made to our office on or before your due date as written in your Rental Agreement. The rent is late on the 2nd of the month however most contracts don’t charge a late fee until the 4th or 5th of the month. To be clear, your rent IS late if it’s paid after the 1st so please make arrangements to have it to us BEFORE or ON the due date. Make checks payable to NWATLPM or Northwest Atlanta Property Management, and please write down the address of your home on the check-in the notes field. You may also arrange for your bank to Auto Pay NWATLPM for the amount of the rent delivered by the 1st of each month to 4493 Coventry Way NE, Roswell GA 30075. Your “account number” is your property address. We do NOT accept cash but will accept cashiers checks, money orders, and after month 1, we will accept personal checks (providing there have been no “bad or bounced checks.”) If you have a problem paying your rent on time please call us and discuss the circumstances BEFORE the due date. Open lines of communication are essential resolving any differences. Failure to pay the rent or returned checks/insufficient funds will result in additional late and/or legal fees charged to you.
If you plan to pay in person or stop by at our Woodstock office (3380 Trickum Road Building 1300 Suite 100 Woodstock GA 30188) please call ahead to make sure someone will be available to help you or plan to drop in the black drop box to the left outside the office. The office is on the RIGHT of the main building and has a separate door. YOU MUST LET US KNOW IF YOU LEAVE SOMETHING IN THE DROPBOX.
If your check is returned by your bank, you will be charged $75 and Northwest Atlanta Property Management will not accept personal checks from you in the future; after any “bad or bounced check” you must pay with a money order or cashiers check.
Your Security Deposit is held in an escrow account at Bank of America. The security deposit may not be used to pay rent under any circumstances! When your lease is terminated, your move-out forms are completed, and all keys/openers have been returned, your deposit will be returned to you less any charges against it (within thirty (30) days. It may not be used as your last months’ rent.
The Move-in/Move-Out Form is very important, as it will be used in checking you out of this property. Any damaged or broken items not listed on the form at move-in will be assumed to have been caused by you and you will be responsible for the repair/replacement of such items. Normal wear and tear are not your responsibility. You have ten (10) days from the date of occupancy to change or amend your inventory and condition form. If you find any problems in your home please let us know within the ten-day period.
Insurance for your personal belongings is strongly encouraged. Owner’s insurance does NOT cover any of your personal property under any circumstance. A Renters’ Insurance Policy is easily and inexpensively obtained and will protect you from loss. If you have a waterbed it is required that you obtain waterbed insurance (approximately $100 per year) to protect yourself from liability should your waterbed rupture. We would also like to have information on your Auto insurance on file in case your vehicle should cause damage to the property.
If your insurance company doesn’t have renters insurance, John Wells, with Allstate will be able to help you. Call him at 770.541.4000 or click here to visit his website.
Periodic Inspections will be made approximately every three to six months to protect your and the owners’ interests. This inspection should take between 30-45 minutes. This is normally coordinated around the lease renewal as well as in-between. A video or photos may be taken at this time.
Guests are allowed but any guest who stays overnight 14 days within a 3- month period is considered a tenant and must be approved by the Landlord. Such approval will include a credit/background report ($30 per adult) and the owner’s approval.
Pets are only allowed as per contract and require an additional non-refundable Pet fee. Turtles, birds, and fish are normally excluded from this clause.
Smoking is generally not allowed in units we manage. The cost to clean a home after smoking has occurred in it can be very expensive
