Prior to 60 days of the expiration of the lease RNB will notify you of RNB’s intention to either renew or not to renew the lease by submitting a 60 Day Lease Expiration Notice. If RNB chooses to renew the lease you have up to 30 days before the expiration of the lease to notify RNB of their intentions or you will forfeit your right to occupy the property.

Tenant Termination of Tenancy
  1. Lease - You are responsible for the terms of the lease that you have agreed upon.
    Note: If you enter active military service or are called up to the National Guard for more than one month at a time you may end your lease.
  2. Month-to-Month - Under a month-to-month rental agreement you must submit a 30-day Notice of Tenants Intent to Vacate.
  3. Partial Termination - In the event that one or more tenants decides to vacate but one or more tenants intend to stay, then the remaining tenant(s) must meet the required household income to remain in tenancy. RNB reserves the right to request proof of legal and verifiable income.
RNB Termination of Tenancy

  2. Month-to-Month - In order to terminate a month-to-month rental agreement RNB will serve a 30-day Notice of Termination of Tenancy for less than one year of tenancy and a 60-day Notice for one year or more.
Abandonment of Real Property

In the event that the current month\'s rent remains unpaid for 14 days and RNB has not received a response to the 3-day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit , RNB will then serve a 24 hour Notice to Enter Dwelling Unit to verify abandonment. After the verification has taken place and it is confirmed that the property is abandoned due to lack of utilities and/or furniture an Abandonment Notice will be mailed to your last known address.

Abandonment of Personal Property
  1. Personal Property Estimated by Office Manager at a value less than $300 - All personal property will be noted on a Notice of Right to Reclaim Abandoned Personal Property which will be mailed to you. You have exactly 18 days after the notice has been mailed to reclaim their abandoned personal property. If no response is received after the 18 days, then RNB will dispose of the property.
  2. Personal Property Estimated by Office Manager at a value more than $300 - All personal property will be noted on a Notice of Right to Reclaim Abandoned Personal Property and mailed to you. You have exactly 18 days after the notice has been mailed to reclaim your abandoned personal property. If no response is received after the 18 days, then RNB will advertise a public sale in a publication of general circulation, for 2 consecutive weeks. Following the two weeks a sale will be held on the 4th week. RNB will use the proceeds to compensate for the costs of the sale, storage and advertising. All remainder moneys will be submitted to the appropriate County Treasurer.
    Note: Values are estimated by an Office Manager upon the equivalent item that one may find either at a garage sale or swap meet.
RNB Move-Out Inspection

Initial Inspection - The 60-Day Lease Expiration Notice includes a statement notifying you that you may request a pre-final inspection. Upon request of this pre-final inspection, the scheduled time will occur no earlier than four weeks prior to the expiration of the lease and no later than two weeks prior to the expiration of the lease. Within the last two week period, RNB will attempt to schedule a final inspection at a mutually convenient time in order to help prepare you for move-out. After a 48-hour notice to enter, the property's paperwork will be submitted to a property manager who will compare the condition of the property with the Initial Move-In Checklist. The inspection results will be recorded on the Final Move-Out Checklist and a copy will be left with you.

Final Inspection

Within the last week of tenancy or after you have vacated, RNB will attempt to schedule a final inspection at a mutually convenient time. A 48-hour notice to enter the property will be submitted. A property manager will compare the final condition of the property with the Initial Move-In Checklist. Any deficiency will be recorded on the RNB Move-Out Final Inspection.

Processing the Security Deposit

Within 21 days of the date you vacated, RNB will mail to you an accounting statement that includes an itemized list of all deductions, invoices and receipts for labor and materials purchased and any refunds that remain. In the event that the property requires repair and the repairs have yet to be completed, RNB will mail an estimated accounting statement within 21 days of the property being vacated. Within 14 days after receiving the final invoice for repairs, RNB will mail the accounting statement that lists any deductions to the tenant, including any refunds that are due. In the event that the money RNB refunded is less than the deposit minus the actual cost of repairing the item, then any additional refund due will be mailed to the tenant within three days. All refunds will be mailed in the form of a check made out to all tenants that are 18 years old or legally emancipated, or married to a person who is at least 18 years old or legally emancipated, and that are named on the lease. RNB will only make deductions for the following:

  1. Unpaid rent balances.
  2. Cost of repairs for tenant damages or to replace or restore owner's personal property.
  3. Cost of cleaning service that will return the unit to its original level of cleanliness.
