FAQ – Prospective Owners 2017-05-15T23:13:07+00:00
How often will I be contacted by your company? 2017-05-10T20:29:37+00:00

Generally, we contact our owners only when needed. At a minimum, we will reach out to you for lease extensions, larger repairs and monthly accounting statements. If more contact is necessary, it will be dependent upon each situation. Regardless, we encourage owners to contact our office if they would like to speak with their Account Manager or another team member.

Will I ever need to speak directly with my tenants? 2017-03-17T20:35:23+00:00

Typically, owners are not required to speak with tenants. If owners would like to speak with tenants, we are happy to facilitate communication between both parties.

What will my property rent for? Can this change in the future? 2017-03-17T20:34:36+00:00

Rental rates are dependent on each property’s location, condition, size and availability. Because each property is unique, our team takes the time to complete a thorough inspection of the property in order to determine the best rate. At the beginning of each year, our accounting department does an annual market assessment to give owners insight into the property’s future value.

When will I receive rent payments? 2017-09-11T18:46:17+00:00

Our team works diligently to deliver payments in a timely manner. Please see below for a timeline summary of our monthly payment calendar:

1st: Rent is due for all tenants

3rd-5th: All rent should be collected from tenants

6th-9th: Bills are processed and payments for vendors are completed

10th, 11th, 12th: Owners are paid

We do ask that our owners take weekends and holidays into consideration upon completion of each payment.

What are your management fees? 2017-05-11T06:03:28+00:00

Our management fees can vary depending on the property. We only charge a certain percentage of the monthly rent, we don’t charge extra for specialty services like other property management companies do. Our services include, but are not limited to, collecting rent, billing utilities to tenants, leasing, scheduling maintenance and repairs. We do not charge any additional fees for any of these services.

Will there be more than one person handling my property? 2017-05-10T20:46:09+00:00

Here at Zabace, we work as a team to provide the best property management service to our property owners. Primarily, one of our Account Managers or Account Coordinators will be assigned to a property and will serve as the owner’s direct contact for detailed questions and concerns. We encourage all of our future and current owners to check out our “People” page, which lists our team of Account Managers, as well as our other staff members. If you are unsure which Account Manager has been assigned to your property, please do not hesitate to email support@zabace.com. We are happy to help you connect with the appropriate contact as necessary.

What’s a Property Manager? 2017-05-11T06:12:43+00:00

A property manager is someone who manages all aspects of a rental property, from showing the property to prospective tenants to signing leases, to collecting rent, organizing maintenance and repairs and communicating with tenants, among other things. A property manager removes your requirement to communicate with tenants and acts as a middle entity, which often removes stressful situations between tenant and landlord. Feel free to contact us and we’d be happy to discuss our company’s services with you!
