How can I visit a property?
You can schedule an appointment to visit a property https://www.actionproperties.com/homes-for-rent. Simply select the property you would like to see, fill out some basic information about yourself, and select the time that works best for you.
Our team is available for showings 7 days a week.
Is it possible to apply for a property that I haven't viewed?
No, however we can offer you a virtual showing or you can have a friend or family member preview the property for you.
Do I have to sign a lease?
Yes, you must sign a lease either online or in person. In most cases, we require a 12-month lease when moving in. After the lease expires, the agreement will automatically transition to a month-to-month lease. In some cases, we do offer lease extensions.
What is your security deposit policy?
We require a security deposit that is equal to 1-month of rent. In some cases it may be more, such as if you are an international arrival with no United States established credit.
After you move out, you can expect to receive your security deposit refund within 21 days of returning the property into our possession. All charges to the security deposit are communicated clearly alongside the refund check.
How do the rent payments work?
Rent payments are due on the 1st of each month. Almost all tenants elect to pay rent online through our tenant portal, which does include an option for automatic payments, at no additional cost.
Personal checks, cashier checks, money orders, and bill pay checks may be delivered in person to the office or mailed. No cash is accepted. The office location is 268 Castro Street, Mountain View, CA 94041.
When do you increase the rent?
Rent increases may happen at the end of a lease, or one a year at most if you are on a month to month agreement. Our property managers work together with the property owners to assess the rental market, and if your rents are below market value, it is possible that your rent may be increased to a fair market value.
What could I do to waive the late rent fees?
There is no way to waive any late fees; it is non-negotiable. We recommend tenants set up automatic payments through the tenant portal to avoid late payments.
What happens if I can't pay the rent on time?
Please notify us immediately at email@example.com. Rent payments are considered late on the 6th of each month and you will be charged a late fee of 5% of your monthly rent.
Am I allowed to have a roommate?
Yes. Please keep in mind that all adults living in the property will need to fill out an application and be on the lease.
What kind of situations are emergencies?
A situation is classified as an emergency when any lives are in danger, as well as damage to the property. An example of an emergency is a burst water pipe causing flooding. Please contact us immediately, we have a 24-hour emergency hotline.
What's the pet policy?
We require all tenants to create an account with Pet Screening, whether or not you have a pet.
Our full pet policy and pet application can be found at a https://actionproperties.petscreening.com/
Can I change the locks?
Yes you are welcome to change the locks. However, please be aware that you must provide a copy of the key to us for emergency purposes. Failure to do so is a violation of the lease agreement.
Please note that tenants will be liable for any damage to the door during this procedure, and are responsible to restore the door back to its original condition.
Can managers and staff enter my home when I'm not there?
No, the lease agreement includes your right to privacy. However, there may be some cases that require a manager or staff member to come inside, such as maintenance, annual inspections, owner inspections, or appraisal visits. And, if you cannot meet them at a reasonable time during the day, then we will respectfully enter to conduct the necessary business.
You will always be notified a minimum of 24 hours in advance before any inspections. The only exception to this policy is if there is an emergency. For example, if you have a burst pipe and water is flooding.
