Tenant FAQs –  our common questions

 

Can you hold a place before I apply?

Once your  application is approved and a full deposit is paid, the rental listing will be withdrawn from all portals.

 Do I pay first month’s rent and last month’s rent with my security deposit?

We only require the full amount of the deposit, typically equal to one months’ rent and prorated rent is charged from the day the lease starts.

 How do I pay rent?

Rent is due on the 1ST of the month and you will mail in your check or money order.  Make checks payable to Weichert, Realtors – Inlet Properties and write the address of the property you are renting on the front of the envelope.  The memo portion of your check  should reference the property address and my name: Victoria Begault, Property Manager

 

Mail your payment or drop it off at our office located at 227 Mediterranean avenue, Virginia Beach, VA 23451. Our office is located on the third level above Rudee’s Seafood Restaurant.  There is a drop box for after hours just inside the doorway but you need to let me know you dropped it off.

 

CASH PAYMENTS FOR RENT ARE NOT ACCEPTED.


 How old do you have to be to apply?

You must at least 21 years of age and have monthly income equivalent to three times the rent.

I want to get a pet. What do I do?

Many of our properties do not allow pets, and there may be breed or weight restrictions.  Please call our office to obtain permission before you acquire the pet. There is a $250 non-refundable pet fee charged per pet and a Pet Addendum must be completed once you obtain the permission needed from the homeowner. This fee is paid before any pets are allowed on the premises. There is a fine of $250 per month for any unauthorized pets found on the premises.

 I want to move out, but my roommate wants to stay. What do I do?

Please call our office for information as each situation is unique. 

 Is the deposit refundable?

Once a move-out inspection has been conducted and it is determined that there are no damages to the interior and the exterior of the home and that all required receipts have been submitted, your deposit will be refunded to you within 45-60 days of your move-out date. Please do not forget to provide with your forwarding address. Without it, your refund cannot be processed until an address if located.

 My lease expiration is coming and I want to move out. What do I do?

We require a written sixty (60) day Notice to Vacate submitted before the first of the month prior to the next rent cycle. 

 Who is responsible for paying for repairs & maintenance requests?

Typically, our homeowners take care of paying for all repairs and maintenance unless it is determined that you are the cause of the repair. We will then bill the repair cost to you.
