Frequently Asked Questions for Tenants

Will you pick up my rent each month?

No. Payments must be electronically submitted through your online tenant portal or mailed to PO BOX 4051, Lantana, FL 33462. Please ensure payments are made out to Palm Beach Managers, LLC.

What are the important criteria used to qualify for renting a home?

Since we manage homes for hundreds of different homeowners, each homeowner may have a somewhat different standard for tenant selection. Generally, owners consider the following factors:

  • Satisfactory credit history
  • Monthly income about three times the monthly rental amount
  • No outstanding judgments
  • No past rental evictions
  • Established history of credit since a past bankruptcy
  • Employment verification
  • Criminal record check
  • Present and former landlord references

All properties are offered subject to the Federal Fair Housing Act which makes it illegal to advertise any preference, limitation, or discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, country of national origin, handicap, or familial status.

When is my rent due?

All rental payments are due on the 1st of each month. Your rent must be received by 6:00pm EST on the 5th of each month.

Do I have to have good credit to rent with Palm Beach Managers?

No, our application process is not credit driven. However, you will have to meet the criteria listed above.

What forms of payment do you accept for my rent?

Acceptable forms of payment for monthly rent are ACH check, Credit Card, Money Order and Cash. Palm Beach Managers reserves the right to require certified funds if you exceed one NSF in any 15-month period.
