Tenant Move In Guidelines for Southern Maryland Tenants

At Real Property Management Gold, we’re happy to welcome you to your new home. We are here to help ensure you have a successful stay. Your leasing agent will provide a resident manual with all the information you need to enjoy and care for your home.

Tenancy Agreement and Move In Checklist

You’ll also receive an Inventory and Condition form to document the condition of your property. Please go through your new home as you complete this form, and take pictures of anything you note. Email your form and photos back to us within five days of moving into the property. Remember, this form stays in the leasing department. So, if you see anything that needs maintenance, please submit a separate maintenance request through your tenant portal. We want you to enjoy your new home, and we’ll work with you to ensure the property is well-maintained.

Landlord Tenant Responsibilities

Let’s take moment to review resident and owner responsibilities.

Tenants are responsible for keeping the home clean and tidy, setting up utilities in their name, caring for the lawn, yard, and landscaping, completing minor and seasonal maintenance such as changing light bulbs, furnace filters, and refrigerator water filters, and complying with local, state, and HOA property codes, laws, rules, and regulations. Landlord responsibilities include ensuring the rental property is clean, safe, and ready for occupancy. Landlords will rekey all doors leading to the outside, comply with state and federal laws pertaining to detectors in the home, and if applicable, provide tenants with a copy of the HOA rules.

Online Tenant Portal

Your leasing agent will provide a login for your private resident portal. You can pay rent every month with a checking account, debit card, or credit card. You can set up automatic or recurring payments to ensure on time payments and peace of mind. When you pay rent online on time, you are eligible for the RPM Resident Club where you can save hundreds of dollars a month on products you buy every day. Simply sign up with the link after you pay online.

When maintenance or repairs are needed, log into your portal or call our maintenance hotline to submit a ticket. When it’s time to move, we reward residents who made on time rental payments and took great care of the property. We will offer a payment history and letter of recommendation on request. This will help you buy or rent a new home.

Your leasing agent will give you a manual with more information on all these items and more. Please keep this handy for easy reference throughout your tenancy. If you have any questions or need help finding homes for rent in southern Maryland, please contact us at Real Property Management Gold.

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the Nation. See Equal Housing Opportunity Statement for more information.
