Property Management Fees Summary

We want to be transparent with our property owners.

*No fees paid out of pocket; we collect the fees for management/setup/property reserve once the home is occupied – which gives you the assurance that we will work diligently to get it leased.

Additional Property Owner Information

  • Chattahoochee Dwellings Property Management is here to help you and answer your questions before entrusting us with your rental property. Here are several more important and frequently asked items in property management fees.
  • Pet Fees are 100% given to you, we do not deduct any portion. Typically we charge $250-300 per animal with a max of two. For emotional support animals, we require proper documentation. 
  • You, the property owner, retain all late fees. We charge the tenant a late fee of 5% and they are billed on the 5th of the month. Eviction/filing charges are billed/collected to/from the tenant. The tenant has until the 5th of each month to pay, after that there is a 5% late fee added – and eviction is filed on the 6th unless a prior arrangement/emergency has been established and agreed upon between management and rental owner. 
  • Tenants are required to pay a security deposit equal to the rent amount – the security deposit is held in our Trust/Escrow Account for liabilities. At move-out, a walk-through is performed and the tenant is billed for any cleaning/damages. These funds are subtracted from the deposit (along with any delinquent rent or fees) before being released back to them. 
  • A Rental Owner Statement can be sent out monthly/quarterly detailing all income and expenses on the account. We also send out an end-of-year tax filing (1099) with a yearly recap of the breakdown (income/expenses). 
  • We mandate that all tenants obtain Renter’s Insurance once signing a lease for our properties. Ensuring the tenant’s safety and your peace of mind with your rental property.
