Due to the recent changes in Texas Property Code regarding the number of smoke alarms mandatory in a household along with increased cost of home maintenance GDAA Property Management, LLC has implemented a mandatory "Property Survey" program. This program was designed to help us make sure your property is being maintained and is up to current code. We see this as a preventative maintenance measure as well as a benefit to our owner clients.
GDAA Property Management has partnered with OnSight Pros a third-party company that will conduct a regular assessment of your property. We have found that by having a third-party conduct property assessments tenants seem to let their guard down. We have discovered that unauthorized pets or even occupants are less often hidden when the tenants are receiving a third-party assessment rather than the landlord or property management company. This will not only help us with documentation in case of disputes over security deposits, but will also be able to assist with speeding up having vendors dispatched for make readies when the tenant(s) vacate. Additional benefits of the OnSight Pros are that if they come across a property with missing smoke detectors or dirty AC filters, they will repair or replace them immediately with no cost to you.
The cost of the assessment is $129 if you directly ordered one from OnSite Pros. As our company is associated with the National Association of Residential Property Managers, we have negotiated a price per assessment of $99. The report completed during the 7th through 9th month of the tenants yearly occupancy, will allow us to be even more pro-active on assessing tenant damages before the end of the lease. You will be signed up automatically for the once a year property survey.
We feel this service is well worth the investment and has a value of more than its cost. GDAA Property Management is confident that you will find the assessment report a great value and a small price for your significant real estate investment.
