What to Expect as a Tenant

Renting a home through 
Springs Homes for Rent is Hassle-Free.

MOVE INS & OUTS

When a tenant moves into a property, a detailed move-in report is prepared and provided to the tenant, so that the tenant knows exactly the condition to leave the property in at move-out.

Springs Homes for Rent uses an online portal system so that you can communicate with us 24/7. Simply leave a message on the convenient online portal and we will respond back to you right away. 

MAINTENANCE

Is your bathroom sink leaking? Simply fill out a maintenance request online and we will dispatch a vendor to fix it right away. Keeping on top of maintenance issues is one of our top priorities.

Applying for a Rental Property

Here are some great tips to keep in mind when applying for a rental property.
Application fees are non-refundable.
Please check the available date and make sure that it coincides with your needs.
We do not hold vacant properties for more than 1-2 weeks after an application is approved.
We do not have a “first-come, first served” policy. Please check with us to see if there is already an application on the property. If you have submitted an application, others may be competing with you until you have been either approved or denied.
If your application has been approved, and you have not yet seen the property, you must be willing to lease it “sight-unseen”. We cannot hold the property off the market to wait for you to view it.
Given Colorado’s climate, there are many rental units that do not have central AC. Please check with the information provided in the listing and double check with us prior to applying for the property if central AC is required for your living situation.
We will notify you when your application is either approved or denied via email.

Move Ins & Move Outs

MOVE-IN CONDITION

When you move into a property managed by Springs Homes for Rent, it will have been fully cleaned, carpets professionally cleaned and re-keyed from the previous tenants. You will not be charged for this initial condition, but you will be required to return the property to us in this same condition at move-out. If you do not wish to fully clean the property or have the carpets professionally cleaned, we can arrange this for you and it will be deducted from your Security Deposit.

MOVE-OUT CONDITION

Remember how nice and clean your property was when you moved in? That is the condition that it needs to be in when you move-out. The move-in inspection report will provide us the baseline for the condition of the property. Was that gouge in the wall there when you moved in? It should be documented on the move-in inspection report, so there will be no questions when you move out.

Maintenance & Repairs

TENANT MAINTENANCE

Things do wear out and break over time and we realize that fact. If, during your tenancy, something breaks that falls under normal wear and tear, please let us know immediately so that we can get it fixed right away. In most cases, you will not be charged for this repair. 

If, on the other hand something breaks that falls outside of normal wear and tear (i.e. a baseball breaking a window), please let us know right away and we can get you in touch with one of our vendors for the repair. In most cases, you will be charged for this type of repair. 

Your lease and accompanying documentation talk about what falls under normal wear and tear and what does not. 

WHO IS CHARGED FOR REPAIRS?

Here is a quick guide to show you some examples of what maintenance charges fall under the tenant’s responsibility.
