How do I know you’ll find a qualified tenant?
We will run a credit report, conduct background screenings, review employment history, rental history, and check local and national sexual offender databases. This is a very important part of the process and determines much of what transpires during a tenancy.If a prospect passes our screening you will be notified immediately.
How do I get paid each month?
Tenants are required to pay rent on the 1st of the month. They are given a few days grace period per the lease agreement, once we receive the rent an owner can expect to be paid within the first ten days of the month. Often times owner payments are initiated on the 5th of the month. We can accommodate most all requests for payment and some of our owners receive physical checks monthly, but most are paid via ACH.

Why should I hire a professional to manage my property?
While the reasons our clients choose professional property management vary, here are some of the key reasons many people elect professional management over self-management:
- We handle maintenance and emergency repairs in-house, allowing you to sleep at night and save money.
- We enforce collection of rents and serve the proper notices upon failure to pay.
- We understand and apply the correct federal, state, and local laws, keeping you and your investment out of trouble.
- We know the local market, have an extensive network of contacts, and have advertising resources available to us. This allows us to effectively market your vacant home to prospective residents to get it filled.
How much notice does a resident have to give before they can properly vacate a property?
Our lease provides that tenants give a minimum 45 day written notice that they will be leaving the unit. If a lease is broken, then that tenant will be responsible for paying the rent on that unit until the broken lease has ended, pay an early termination fee or the unit is re-rented. Valiant reaches out to the tenants 60 to 75 days from lease expiration.
What does Valiant need to start managing my property?
After choosing us to manage your property, we would need the following things:
- A signed management agreement & solveny statement
- A copy of all current leases, along with current tenant balances, amount of deposit, and any notices pending for tenant.
- All keys associated with units and storage
- A summary of what utilities are paid by tenant, and which by owner
