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.

What if my credit isn’t perfect?
That’s Ok, most people’s credit isn’t perfect! Our owners trust that we’ll help them find the best qualified tenants for their property, not just the tenant with best credit score. Can you prove that you have steady income, no scary background issues, and a responsible residential history? If so, we want you!

We can likely approve your application the same day you apply (providing you have submitted all requested information), so if you have the money ready – come and get your keys today!
What are your qualifications?
When we are running your background check, we want to see your results from the last 2 years. At HomeQwik, we really want to focus in on what you have been doing lately. So don’t worry too much about your score, but prove to use that you earn 3X the monthly rent price, that you last residency ended on good terms, and with on-time payments. if you can prove this, we can have you approved today!
Can I do repairs or fix up the property?
We expect and encourage our tenants to take both pride and ownership in the properties they occupy, so we hope that you will manage the minor repairs or issues at the property. Anything that would be a permanent change would require the owners approval. Basically, you can paint the walls (with approval), but you can’t knock them down. We expect to get a property back in the same condition in which you received it, minus normal “wear and tear”.
When I’m ready to buy, can HomeQwik help me?
Absolutely! We may be able to help you acquire the property you are currently living in, or we can always aid you in finding a new property to purchase. Our Realtors are experienced, and would love nothing more than to help you find the right home, and investment. We know lenders that can help you qualify for a loan, and we have access to any available home for sale in AZ.
