Sacramento Rent Collection

Collecting rent on time doesn’t have to be difficult. We provide our tenants with a number of different ways to pay, meeting their needs and keeping the process secure, consistent, and convenient. This means you get your money faster and with fewer hassles. You can follow the timeline of rent collection to rent deposit in your online portal, and we’ll be quick to let you know if there are any issues. We’re compliant with security deposit laws, and we do everything we can to avoid eviction before we even place a tenant – no one wants to go to court. Our rent and deposit policies are designed to protect your asset and your cash flow.

Consistent Rent Collection Policies Lead to On-Time Payments

Most of our Sacramento tenants are paying rent online. We have invested in the best property management software that’s available, providing an easy and efficient way for your residents to pay on time. They simply log into their tenant portals and make a one-time payment, schedule upcoming payments, or ask for reminders when rent is due. Online payments lead to on-time payments, and this means there’s no disruption in the cycle of collecting rent from tenants and paying rent to owners.

At Sunburst Properties, we recognize that not everyone embraces technology the way we do. There are other methods of payment for tenants who aren’t ready to go online, and we’re here to work with tenants to ensure rent is paid in full and on time when it’s expected. Our rent collection policy is clearly outlined in the lease agreement, and we enforce it consistently.

We’re confident that we can collect rent on time for you every month because it’s one of the things we look for when we’re screening tenants. We want to hear from former landlords that rent was paid when it was due.

Protecting cash flow throughout Sacramento and the surrounding neighborhoods.


Understanding Sacramento Security Deposits

Security deposit law in California is a bit challenging, especially if you’re not sure how much you can collect in a security deposit, where you’re required to hold it, and how much time you have to give it back. We know the law inside and out at Sunburst Properties, and we keep our tenant disputes to a minimum. It starts with a thorough documentation of the property’s condition before move-in and after move-out. There’s little room for error in our process.

Tenants expect their security deposit to be returned in full, and the law requires that we do it within 21 days of move-out. To expedite the process and eliminate confusion, we remind tenants of their responsibilities before they move out so they’re not surprised if we withhold security deposit funds for cleaning and repairs. We also take care of the following:

  • Offering a pre-move out inspection as required by law.

  • Creating inspection reports with photos.

  • Itemizing any deductions and including invoices, work orders, and receipts.

  • Meeting with tenants to work through any questions or potential disputes.

A mistake with the security deposit can land you in court, and you can find yourself being liable to pay the tenant up to three times the amount of the original deposit. At Sunburst Properties, we have the right process and the best tenant relationships to ensure disputes never get that far.

Avoiding Eviction Saves Money

Evicting a tenant in California is more cumbersome than ever. First, you have to make sure there’s a just cause for the eviction. This might be nonpayment of rent or a lease violation or criminal activity. If there’s no cause to evict, you may have to pay the tenant a relocation fee to remove them from the property.

At Sunburst Properties, we’re prepared. Evictions are rare, and that’s because we do our due diligence ahead of time with a strict screening process. We establish and maintain excellent tenant relationships, and we make sure we’re working together to take care of your property so there’s no need to go to court for an eviction. We know that evictions are expensive and time-consuming, and not the way to enjoy a successful investment experience. We avoid them.

I would like to share my wonderful experience with Sunburst Property Management. They managed my rental property for the last 14 years. They selected good tenants. They were quick in preparing the house for the new tenant to move in. Jill and Madeline are wonderful to work with. Always returned my calls. Madeline was fast in getting contractors to come fix the house when needed, with a reasonable cost. We never had to worry about anything. I would highly recommended Sunburst Property.
