  • Owner/Management



    Owner/Management Obligations

    During our relationship, Lunar Property Management will act as your liaison between the daily operation of your property and its lessees.

    Manager Obligations during our relationship will include:

    • Screen prospective renters to procure tenants.
    • Inspect your property when vacant/occupied and manage your tenants during occupancy.
    • Market the property.
    • List your property using the Multiple Listing System, classified advertising, electronic advertising, signing, and affiliated business partner relationships.
    • Work diligently to keep your property leased by qualified and responsible tenants.
    • Sign lease agreements, extensions and other addendum relating to the leasing of your property.
    • Orchestrate utility services on your behalf.
    • Collect rent, deposits, and fees for your property.
    • Disperse funds held on your behalf to reimburse vendors for completed work.
    • Provide owner with a monthly operating statement, net rent proceeds, and copies of any applicable invoices or documents.
    • Initiate legal forcible detainers, collection activities, and tenant notices for non-payment of rent or lease violations.
    • Provide owner with a year-end financial recap, including a 1099 form for your Federal income taxes.
    • At your request, serve as statutory/registered agent for out of state owners.

    Owner Obligations during our relationship will include:

    • Meet all obligations to maintain services for the tenants’ full legal use of the property per Maine Laws.
    • Maintain a maintenance reserve fund of $200 to address property needs as necessary. When/If depleted, this reserve will be automatically replenished from monthly rents.
    • Answer all management emails and phone calls in a timely manner.

    In addition, Lunar Property Management wants our clients to be aware that:

    • Due to matters not in our full control, we do not guarantee the leasing of your property or its tenancy, rent collection, proper tenant usage or behavior, and others matter outside of our control. We will of course do everything in our power to ensure that none of the aforementioned matters become an issue.
    • We do not pay mortgage payments, HOA dues, property taxes, insurance payments, or utilities on the owner’s behalf. These payments are the responsibility of the owner.
    • We will not advance funds for the operation of your property. The owner is responsible for the cost of all repairs, maintenance, and unforeseen emergencies.
    • We will employ other professional businesses, contractors and vendors on your behalf to repair, maintain, or replace necessary components to insure your property stays in good condition and remains rented.
    • We will inform owners in advance of any single repair in excess of $200. Repairs in excess of $200 will require additional owner emergency reserves and prior permission.
    • Owners must comply with Maine State Law, which requires owners to maintain property to code enforcement standards.
    • Typical property maintenance and repairs will be managed by Lunar Property Management at $50 per service call to pay the vendor performing the labor. However, medium to large scale jobs (to be determined), that would typically call for the use of a contractor, such as: the property needs a lot of work inside or out, a full or partial kitchen, bath, or property wide remodel, a large scale and/or multi-room repair issue, may incur additional contractor fees. During such times, the owner may contract the work to be performed on his own, may hire Lunar Property Management to contract the job, or hire a third-party contactor/company. All scenarios are completely owner determined – which ever you feel comfortable with.
