California Security Deposit Laws

The return of security deposits is the most common disagreement between landlord’s and tenants. There are 4 basic laws to abide by in California when it comes to returning the security deposit.  The following four are in California Civil Code Section 1950.5 (b):

  • Unpaid Rent
  • For Cleaning the Rental unit; But this can only be for cleaning it as well as it was cleaned when the tenant first move in.
  • Damages caused by the tenant or tenant’s guest excluding normal wear and tear
  • If the lease allows it, the replacing or fixing of furnishings furnished for the rental

What is Normal Wear and Tear?

This is also one of the most popular topics of disagreement between landlords and tenants.  “Normal wear and tear” is basically the useful life of carpet, paint, fixtures, etc…   If the useful life of paint is 4 years, then a landlord cannot simply charge the tenant to repaint the entire house if the house has not been painted for the past 5 years.  If the useful life to carpet is 6 years, then the landlord cannot simply charge the tenant for changing the carpet after 7 years of not changing the carpet.  However, if the tenant hangs a plasma tv on the wall and does not repair the large holes in the wall after the useful life of painting, the landlord can charge for repairing and painting that wall.  The most important thing in preventing disagreements in regards to security deposits is to educated your owners and your tenants.

Government Gone Wild – Debt Crisis of America

I just saw this video on our Debt.  It’s pretty crazy.  Why can’t our government operate like everyone else?  Why can’t they just spend within their means and only use what they bring in.  In this short video clip, it explains how in 2046 our revenue that we bring in will 100% go to only the interest payments that we owe on our debt.

Renting San Diego Rental Properties Faster with Video

Our company has recently started using video to rent our properties and it has allowed us to rent our properties much faster than the average company not using videos.  Using videos enables our prospective tenants to view the property before actually getting to the property.  They are also able to immediately share that video with a friend and co-worker that will allow us to get more views and more prospects.

Using Craigslist is great for getting properties rented but if one is only able to view 4 photos then it’s often hard to get a real feel of the property.  This is why using video is so great on craigslist.  The potential renter can now view the entire San Diego rental from click of a button.

Using video also allows us to work only with higher quality prospects so that we’re not bringing hundreds of prospects through the door but only those prospects that really want to see the place.  Contact us below to request a free management proposal for your San Diego rental.

5 Inexpensive Ways to Give You Rentals More Curb Appeal

In a competitive rental market it is important to make a good first impression for all our rentals.  Here are 5 inexpensive suggestions in giving your rental a little more curb appeal so that it will rent fast and at a higher rent.

1.  The 1st way is to put on a new door to the house.  This is one of the 1st things that a potential renter will look at as they are walking up to the door.

2.  The 2nd way  is to plant fresh flowers along the path leading up to the door.  This will along with the door will be the 1st things that a renter will see.

3.  The 3rd way is to look at the entry way and see if you can do anything with paint in regards to the walls.

4.  The 4th way to freshen up the place is to add fresh flowers in the entry way.

5.  The 5th and last way to add a little more curb appeal to the place is moldings in the entry/living area when you first walk in.  This can make a plain room very appealing simply by placing crown moldings in a barren room.
