Ernstoff Properties Practices & Proceedures.

Once the prospective tenant and the owner/manager have negotiated the terms of the rental, the key terms are documented in the deposit receipt provided by the owner / manger in return for a good faith deposit approximately equal to 25% of the rent for the first month. Once the "Good Faith" deposit is received, the unit is removed from the rental market and held for the prospective tenant for the period stated in the deposit receipt.

On receipt of the balance of the rent for the first month (one month of rent less the good faith deposit), and the security deposit, the rental contract is signed by all parties and keys are provided to the tenant.

The rental contract consists of:
Pro-rating of rent to bring rent due date to first of month independent of move in date.
One year lease, unless otherwise agreed upon, based on form. - see below
