Hoover Property Management & Maintenance
At Decas Group, we take a unique approach to maintaining your property.
We encourage owners to save a $300 maintenance reserve in their account as a backup plan for any repair issues that may occur. If, however, we find that the damages are caused by tenants, we hold them liable for the repair costs.
If the repair costs are below $300, we fix the issue for the renter and then bill the owner. In case it exceeds the price limit, we will contact you before resolving the issue to figure out your best course of action.
Our property management and maintenance services aim at providing the highest levels of convenience and satisfaction for owners as well as tenants. Here’s how we do it:
- Promptly respond to maintenance requests and resolve them with the help of qualified contractors.
- Ensure absolute lease enforcement.
- Collect rent on time.

I have used DECAS to manage our properties for 6 years. They are professional, responsive and are very good at turning over properties once they go vacant. During COVID, which I believe was the most difficult time to manage properties in our lifetime, DECAS was able to keep our investments maintained and cash flowing in spite of incredible challenges outside of their control. A job well done. Great work DECAS!
