RENT DUE: All rents are due on the first day of the month. Some of our leases have a grace period. Any rent not received by 5:00 PM on the last day of the grace period is considered late and will incur a late fee. Rents can be paid on line, mailed to us, or dropped off at our office. There is a secure mail slot on our front door where rents can be dropped off 24/7.
LATE RENT: Any rent not received by 5:00 PM on the last day of the grace period (if any) is late and a late fee of 5% will be charged. Personal checks are not accepted after the 5th of the month. If your rent is late it must be paid with a cashier’s check or money order (payable to Gordon Property Management) and must include the late fee.
BOUNCED CHECKS: If your check is returned by the bank for non-sufficient funds, or for any reason, you will be charged a retuned check fee of $40.00 PLUS the late fee of 5%. Replacement checks must be paid with a cashier’s check or money order and must include the NSF fee and the late fee. Personal checks will not be accepted by any tenant who has had two checks returned by the bank.
AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS: If you choose, you can arrange for an automatic payment with your bank. You can also make online rent payments via our Online Tenant Portal.
MOVING OUT: You must give 30 days written notice of your intent to move out. Once we receive your notice we will send you a move out packet with information regarding the pre-move out inspection and cleaning instructions.
MAINTENANCE REQUESTS: All requests for maintenance and repairs must be made through the TENANT PORTAL. You must give us permission to use our keys for entry or you must be home to let the repair person in.

INTERNET LISTINGS: Our available homes for rent are posted on dozens of for-rent websites, complete with high quality photos, maps and property details for the convenience of those searching for a new home. Our ad-copy is carefully crafted to provide critical information to prospects who only spend a few seconds reading ads.
PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY: Prospective tenants are visual, often looking at the photos before reading the ad. It’s critical to have high quality photos to attract high quality tenants. Compare our photography to other companies. You’ll instantly see the difference and understand why we convert a huge percentage of page-views to showings.
VIDEO TOURS: When possible, we film and publish video tours of our rental properties. Photos are great, but it’s difficult to “feel” the flow of the house with still photos. Video tours give prospective tenants the ability to virtually walk-through your property and experience the floor plan and flow of the home. Our high-definition videography
INSTANT ONLINE SCHEDULING: When a prospective tenant wants to schedule a showing it’s important to make the process as easy as possible. Instead of playing phone tag with a leasing agent, APMS prospects can instantly schedule a showing online. Enabling prospects to instantly schedule a showing allows us to convert a higher percentage of inquiries to showings.
CORRECT PRICING: Even the best and nicest homes will not lease quickly if overpriced. We make sure your rental home is priced according to current market conditions.
THOROUGH PREPARATION: Even the best located and well-priced rental homes will not lease quickly if the rental home is not in top showing condition. Homes for rent in the East Bay absolutely must show well and have an attractive “curb appeal” or they may sit empty for extended periods. Part of our job as property manager is to make sure your rental home is presented in a clean and attractive condition so that it will attract a good tenant.

Each of our properties has its own unique Pet Policy, which is specified in the advertisement. Before you schedule a showing or submit a rental application, review the property’s pet policy to ensure your pets comply.
Applicants with pets or service/companion/assistive animals are required to submit a pet application through a third-party pet screening service. There is a fee for the service (fee is waived for service/companion/assistive animals). The application is available here.
If a pet is allowed, the security deposit amount will increase by $500/pet and Tenant will pay a Pet Administration Fee (“Pet Fee”) of thirty dollars ($30.00) per month for the first pet and twenty dollars ($20.00) per month for any additional pets.
Even if a property allows dogs, the following dog breeds are never allowed: Akita, Alaskan Malamute, Boxer, Bull Mastiff, Canary Dog, Chow Chow, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd, Husky, Pit Bull, Rottweiler, and Wolf Hybrid. Applicants with these dog breeds as pets should not apply.
