Frequently Asked Questions
What is your management fee?
How do you handle maintenance Issues?
Each unit has a $300 reserve for work orders. If the estimate for said work comes back below the $300 limit, we take care of it without bothering the owner. If the free estimate comes back over the $300 threshold, we send it to the owner for approval or denial.
Do you deal with Sec8 or houses on Government assistance?
We are very familiar with the 3 major housing authorities in B’ham (HABD, JCHA, BESHA) and have a working relationship with the caseworkers and inspection departments for each (McCright and OHDi). We will handle the initial move-in inspections as well as annual and special inspections to ensure payments resume.
What areas do you service?
We manage homes in every corner of Greater Birmingham.
How do you handle rehabs of vacant properties?
Whether it be an unoccupied unit or your tenant has just moved out, we send our estimator out to create a courtesy scope of work for the owner. Our rehabs/estimates are created taking into consideration the location of your unit and return on investment.
How do you go about marketing your properties?
We market our units through the major sites as well as our own. Avenues such as Facebook, GoSec8 and MLS are utilitzed often in addition for more traffic.
What happens when a tenant moves out?
Upon move out, our estimator will assess the property and upon creating the scope of work, differentiate between tenant damages and normal wear and tear. Any damages are added to the tenant ledger and pursued until satisfied or sent to collections if not rectified timely.
How do you go about onboarding or management transfer from another PM?
When an owner decides to hire Decas Group to manage their properties, the main items required include the Property Management Agreement, W-9 (W-8 for international clients), current mortgage statement, or property deed, copy of their insurance policy, and a copy of their personal identification (Drivers License, state/federal ID etc).
If an owner’s property is coming from another PM, a simple introduction between their portfolio manager and previous management will suffice to facilitate a seamless transition. We will obtain all needed docs to ensure there is no interruption in payment or confusion with their existing tenants.
Do you handle accounting?
Yes, at the end of each month when funds are dispersed direct deposit into your account, you will get an Enhanced Owner Statement, Cash Flow Property Comparison Report, Delinquency Report (if applicable), Financial Review and Consolidated Cash Flow Report. We also send end of the year tax reports along with the month reports as we prefer our owners to have too much information as opposed to not enough.
