Can I enter my property after it is rented?
Allegiant conducts interior inspections of the property every six months. Other than that, we do not enter the property except in emergency situations or when repairs have been requested by the resident. We highly recommend that owners follow the same process. History has shown that residents become unhappy with repeated disturbances and are not as willing to renew their leases. We give residents 24 hours notice before entering a property unless it's an emergency situation. Owners are welcome to attend the semi-annual inspections when we perform them, but you are required to attend.
How much notice does a resident have to give before they can properly vacate a property?
Our standard lease requires residents to give a minimum 30 day written notice of their intention to vacate.
What does Allegiant Property Management need to start managing my property?

Garage door openers, if applicable
Certificate of insurance, with Allegiant Property Management, LLC as an additional insured

How does Allegiant Property Management Handle evictions?

A court appearance and judgement are required prior to actual eviction. The entire process can take more than 90 days. Allegient Property Management retains professional eviction company to handle evictions.
How much does an eviction cost?
An uncontested eviction will cost about $500. A contested eviction can cost up to $3,000.
How are Security Deposits handled?
We require security deposits in an amount equal to or greater than one month's rent. These funds are held in a separate Rent Deposit Escrow account with PNC Bank. Security deposits cannot be disbursed until the resident vacates. Deposit funds can only be disbursed to the owner, the resident or used to cover amounts owed by the tenant and repairs and damages caused by the tenant.
How do I pay management fees?
Management fees are deducted from your monthly owner distributions.
Will you pay my monthly bills for me?
Yes, through our accounting system we can pay most of your monthly bills. Owners generally pay HOA dues and mortgages themselves. We pay bills monthly prior to the owner distribution.
