New online rental application!

Mountain Home Management LLC
Property Managers

Hey, check out our new online rental application. Why not use technology to assist both applicant and landlord? That's what we asked ourselves and the answer was, "Yes"! Here's how it works:

1. You find out about a property you like that is for rent that is managed by Mt. Home Managment (which is good because we care about our tenants and want them to love where they live). You take a look at it, continue to step 2.

2. Follow the link on Craigslist or the one a nice person at Mt. Home Management shares with you.

 3. You fill out the online application.

4. Your application automatically gets sent to us: Mt. Home  Mgt. plus you get a copy if you want. In the future you can use this application information. It's a convenient.

Clay, Terracotta Pipes. Map all Utilities!

Clay pipes have been used for 1,000's of years! Pipes were not only made of terracotta, lead, stone, and clay, but also of wood.
Many people still use them today.
The clay pipes that were used on our property were not that old, but they were broken and needed to be dug out and replaced. It's easy to break a pipe that you don't know is there, especially when using heavy equipment.
A few years ago, when a hole and drainage field were being dug for a new septic system, unknown to the operator of the equipment, there were clay drainage pipes underground. These pipes got broken, but that fact wasn't reveled until a very heavy rain occurred.
It's so important to map out and record every pipe on a property, along with other utilities such as electric and gas.
It may seem like busy work, but it's valuable work and worth doing! Someone, someday, will thank you!
Here's a video of the broken clay pipe being removed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bX3iJyFlPk&feature=g-upl

Landlord & Tenants Beware; Pre-Judgement Interest, Post Judgment Interest, Court Costs and Other Fees Can Add Up to A Lot of Money $$$!

John says to tenants,
"You're better off paying what you owe".
He says to landlords, "It's usually worth filing a claim in court to get what is owed you."
Little is known by many about the pre-judgement interest and post judgement interest. This is money in the form of interest that is added to a claim, it adds up during the time it takes to process the claim. Post-judgement interest is what adds up after the claim has been awarded but hasn't been paid off. It's important that rental applications and contracts spell these fees out clearly. In the unfortunate event that a landlord has to take a tenant to court, these fees can make a big difference.
This is what the form looks like that a person uses that is owed money in Linn County in the State of Oregon.
A person can go on line to
to get copies of forms for court for Linn County, Oregon.
Most tenants want to be good tenants and most landlords want to be good landlords. Sometimes financial matters can't be resolved and the court has to help with resolution.
When this happens, it's always best for both parties to be prepared ahead of time with a detailed, signed rental application and rental agreement.
