Every day, our team prepares written leases for landlords with rental homes in the counties of Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax and Falls Church as a part of our rental property management services service. Writing the lease is one of the most vital chores of the successful property management of a rental townhouse in Virginia near the national capital.
Of course, you’re probably already aware that all of our leases are in writing. The lease our team uses was written by staff attorneys at the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors. Nesbitt Realty just changes details like the names of the parties, the dates and so forth.
Leases frequently have a one-year term. Longer leases are infrequently approved and only after discussions with the property owner. With the investor’s approval—especially during slower rental periods—Nesbitt Realty makes leases for less than one year. Most usually property owners accept longer or shorter leases to have the rental contract expire during a more active rental period. Nesbitt will every now and again work to place a tenant on a month-to-month or short-term lease to accommodate sale of the home by the landlord, a tenant’s pending departure, or moving the investment home into a more active rental period.
