Our Guarantees*

Leasing Guarantee

Leasing Guarantee

In the current market, owners need financial reassurances that the tenant that is placed will remain for the extent of the lease. With our Leasing Guarantee you do not have to worry about your tenant moving out in the middle of their lease. Our guarantee states that if a tenant we place vacates before the end of the initial term, you will not pay a Leasing Commission to find a new tenant (with the exclusion of tenants with military orders).

Property Condition Guarantee

Property Condition Guarantee

We regularly keep you updated on the condition of your home with our photographic property assessments. However, sometimes a little extra security brings peace of mind. With our Property Condition Guarantee, you will not have to worry about the condition of your home. We guarantee that if the tenant causes damage that exceeds their security deposit, we will pay the difference up to $1,000.

Eviction Protection Guarantee

Eviction Protection Guarantee

In the case of nonpayment of rent, we cover eviction costs up to $2,500 for a tenant we placed! Even the best tenants can have unforeseen financial problems. We have you covered with our Eviction Protection Guarantee.

Sarasota Management & Leasing Mike
As a long-term landlord and now as a tenant I can honestly appreciate SML from both sides. I owned 5 houses for about 10 years and hired a property manager while we were gone for almost a year. This property manager was a nightmare for me, and the properties suffered because of that company. I see first-hand where SML has procedures & policies established to protect the investment. From the tenant side of things, they have also been great. Problems with the property are quickly resolved. They have the contacts, contracts & therefore the influence to get a contractor on the problem far faster than any homeowner could.
