It generally takes up to several months to evict someone if you are not sure how the procedure works. When you take advantage of our company services we can help you get your investment back on track and put money back into a positive cash flow in record time. Depending on whether there is a lease or not, it could take as little as three weeks to get someone out. This is great news to most landlords. We handle everything except meeting the sheriff at the property to take back possession. That is your job. You will be informed by your representative as to date and  time scheduled to meet the sheriff at the property with a locksmith. Or you can simply change the locks yourself with the sheriff’s supervision. If you are an out of state owner, then we handle this for you as well at a minimal charge. 


*Once the sheriff has removed the nonpaying tenant we can lease the property for you in record time through our leasing department at By the Sea Realty, conveniently located in Lauderdale By The Sea. We will evaluate the current rental rate in your area and recommend whatever rent increases you should make. A thorough background check will be made on each application received. Once you have reviewed the information provided by our application, you are the one to choose your tenant. We will collect all the required deposits for processing and forward them to you. We do all the foot work, you get the maximum out of your investment.

What to Look for When Hiring a Property Management Firm 

 If you have decided to hire a property management company to help with your rental property, you are making a smart financial decision.  However, you should know that some property management companies are better than others. 


Below are a few things that you should look for in a Property Management Company .

  • Experience in the Property Management Field   
  • Multiple Services
  • PoperTenant Screening
  • Limited Contract solutions
  • Affordable Rates

1.  Experience in the Property Management Field

 You don't want to hire a beginner for this important job.  Instead, look for a company that has been in the property managment field for a good amount of years, enough to know how to handle major issues at hand. 

2.  Multiple Services 

Different property owners need different services.  Some just want help with finding tenants, for example.    Others want full property management services so that they don't have to worry about anything in regards to their property.  Look for a company that offers multiple services that you can tweak based on your needs at the time.

3.  Proper Tenant Screening

Screening tenants properly before allowing them to move into your propeprty is essetial.   You'll want to look for a company that does full, thorough background checks, income verification and credit scores for best results.  

4.  Limited Contract Services  

 You shouldn't have to sign a long-term contract in oder to use property managmement.  Look for a company that will allow you to cancel services if you need to within a 60 day notice period.  Most Property Management companies have yearly automatic contract renewals with a 60 day renewal / expiration clause.  So if you plan on canceling your services, it is best to cancel 60 days prior to the end of contract.  This will allow the property management company to make arrangements for bank transfers, check writing as well as complete a year end report for your taxes. 

5.  Affordable Rates

 Although you can shop around to see who has the better rates, you'll want to keep in mind what you are giving up for a cheeper price.  Many times too often, you get what you pay for.  For example; if you go into a diamond shop and you come out with a cubic zerconia but paid for a diamond, you know you're not getting what you paid for.
