Local Articles in Elyria
The current housing climate requires today's home buyers to know as much as possible about appraisers, mortgage brokers and real estate agents.
Angie's List talks to experts about questions homebuyers should ask of a condo or homeowners association before committing to buy into that neighborhood.
Proponents of condo and homeowners associations say covenant rules protect home values and curb appeal, but some say those organizations hold too much power.
Are the heat pumps Package or Split System?
Are there actually 33 PTAC units?
Are you an EPA certified person( refrigerant )?
Here is my suggestion, break it down into manageable portions(ie one heat pump and a few PTAC units every other month) to keep from being overloaded.
Check/inspect electrical wiring and connections
Check amperage draw of compressors/motors
Check capacitance of start and run capacitors
Check contractors/relays for wear/pitting
Check refrigerant levels and record superheated/subcooling
Check external static pressures across air handler(s)
Check deltaT (return and supply air temps)
Lubricate motors( if applicable)
Inspect Belts/Pulleys( if applicable)
Clean outdoor coils
Clean indoor coils
Start there and HAVE FUN!!!

Letters of violation were never sent. After 18 months, RMPM quit returning calls to owners. They stopped returning all emails. In short,

It took almost 6 months to straighten out the mess created by RMPM.
I would never, ever, have
They are more interested in just getting the property rented than finding good qualified tenants – our first tenant defaulted after 1 month and we have to evict them. Staff was never forthcoming with information other than sending out the obligatory letter stating that the tenant failed to pay their rent in the allotted time and they recommended eviction. Not having ever gone through an eviction we have to call and follow-up on every detail. Then after the tenant failed to meet the requirements of the court they again didn’t do anything unless we pushed to get it done. This lack of urgency was most frustrating since it seemed they are more interested in just collecting their monthly service fees than assisting in Managing the property and property process.
We wanted someone to manage the rental process as if they owned the property themselves -- this is obviously not the case -- also they have a conflict of interest as they manage the property and find the tenants -- it seemed that since they found the tenant that they really didn't want to push for eviction.
Even with the second tenant they found the process was exactly the same – they were more interested in collecting their fees than helping with the management process – the new tenant was late with his first months rent and we are holding our breath to see what happens in the months ahead.
Unfortunately, the repairs discussed were not all completed, the bill just stated "repairs". I was then charged again for the same repairs that I thought had been included in the initial scope of work. OK, I'll accept it was my responsibility to get a more clearly defined list and not rely on the items discussed during the intial walk through. I also later found out the work done was not very good quality. One example would be laminate transition strips were screwed into the concrete pad. These should be glued, not screwed. Every one of them broke and RPM of Indy wanted to charge me to have them replaced. Another example was the pressure relief valve failed on the hot water heater, causing a water leak that damaged the floor in the living room and hall. They quoted me to replace all of the flooring in the entire house, not just the rooms that were damaged. They sent me pictures and said the water heater leaked, I had to tell them it was a Pressure Relief Value failure and it needed corrected.
The tenant was a challenge to schedule and arrange things, which of course caused some delays in getting repairs done. However, there were repairs needed for over 6 months that were approved and NEVER completed. I expect a Property Management Company to find a way to gain access to the property within 6 months. The tenant also complained about RPM. He found their repair people unprofessional and work was not done. That was his side of the story, which I understand may be slanted. I approved repairs to be done and they were still not completed within 6 months.
Although they billed me for routine property inspections, when this tenant moved out there had already been 2 Health Department Violations for trash and debris and I received another after his departure. It required a dumpster to remove everything, which obviously had been accumulating for months. What were they inspecting? The list of repairs "required" was ridiculous! Paint the shower rod. Replace smoke detectors (for missing batteries). Replace the transition strips (which they installed improperly, I complained and they agreed to fix, but never did in over 6 months.) Mailbox missing the door was considered "normal wear and tear" and owner responsibility to correct.
Their online portal is convenient and easy to use. I had to follow up to have the initial management agreement added to the portal as a document, but that was done promptly after my request. The bills they sent me are not cross referenced to the invoices of the charges that they automatically removed from the rent collected. Each month it required a detailed analysis of what was done and what I was billed. It seems as if money is tight, they clean the gutters and bill me for it.
After the tenant moved out with no notice, I ultimately decided to hire my own contractors to complete all of the clean up and repairs required. I just received a bill on 1/6/2015 for 2 trips to install the flooring with a note that the homeowner was a no show 2 times and they charged me for restocking. First, I was never contacted about an appointment to install the flooring. Second, I had approved this repair more than 6 months ago and it was never done, so I hired it to be done. Third, I informed RPM of Indy that I was making all of the necessary repairs. $136.25 for restocking laminate back to Lowes!
I may use a management company again, but I will be much more careful about the management agreement, estimates of work and I will insist on more accurate estimates of work to be performed for quality and cost. Several of their estimates were consistently WAY off in the amount of money required to make the repair. Its no problem for them, they just take the money from the rent and as the homeowner, I have no real recourse.
I have complained to the Property Manager on numerous occasions. Although she is pleasant, most of what I get from her is an apology that I am not happy. Although they are aware that I care for an elderly parent, work from home and cannot take phone calls but prefer email as a means of contact, they consistently call me during the day. I have not seen any significant improvement in the quality of their work, the timeliness of repairs or the professionalism of the entire operation. Something would need to change for me to work with them in the future.
