Renting a Summer Home?
If you are interested in renting a home for the summer, here is what you can expect from start to finish:
1. Search Rentals
Stop in our office or visit our website to search for available homes for rent. We always recommend that all our tenants view the homes in person before renting if they are able to.
2. Agent Assistance & Showing
An Agent can assist you in finding the perfect rental or answer all your questions regarding one you found on our website and will accompany you to view any properties you like.
3. Filling Out & Signing the Required Documents
Once you have found the perfect rental, your Agent will assist you in entering your information into our system. Your lease document will be emailed to you to sign, and a copy is sent to the landlord to sign as well. Everyone, including Schlosser Real Estate, will receive the final legal document by email once signed by landlord and tenant.
4. Payment Process
An Agent will explain the payment process. The lease will also state when all payments are due. Depending on when the lease is signed, payments made by the tenant may or may not yet be reflected in the lease document, that is ok. As long as you make your payments on time, based on the lease, you are good to go.
5. The Day Of Check-in
Check-in is at 3pm on the day you move in. You can pick up the keys at our office between 3 – 5pm. If you are arriving later than 5pm, please call our office to make arrangements.
6. What To Bring (Renter’s Checklist)
Make sure to view the inventory list attached to your lease to see what bedding you may need to bring with you. You can also view our Renter’s checklist.
7. Beach Badges
Some rentals include beach badges, but for those which do not, beach badges can be purchased daily, weekly or for the season. Children under 12 years of age are free and Senior discounts are available. Your welcome package will include information on where you can purchase beach badges.
Tenants are asked to put out garbage/recycling on each day of pick up during your stay, as a courtesy to the next tenant. Your welcome package will have this information. Please note: There may be times where the previous tenant has accumulated garbage since the previous pickup, including garbage from cleaning the home upon check-out. Please do not be alarmed if you notice there is garbage from the previous tenant which needs to be put out by you. You will find that you may need to leave garbage for the next tenant to put out for you as well. This will depend on which town you are in and which days they pickup garbage. If you find that there is an unreasonable amount of garbage left by the previous tenant, please contact our office.
9. Checking Home Thoroughly Before You Leave.
Upon leaving, Tenants are asked to check the home thoroughly for belongings as to not leave anything behind. If you do leave something behind, please call our office immediately and report it to an agent so that we may try to locate your belongings. We also have a lost and found at the office as many Tenants or Owners will bring left behind items to our office.
10. Security Deposit
Security is sent to Tenant 5 days after check-out so long as the Owner has not contacted Schlosser Real Estate about any damages. If the Owner does contact us and request security be held, the Tenant will be notified of this.
11. Re-Up For Next Year.
After the vacation, the Tenant is given the option to rent the same corresponding weeks for the following year, so long as it is approved by the Owner. Your welcome package will have a form specifically for this purpose. Please fill this out and give to an agent when dropping off your keys.
