Our Guarantees

Pet Damage Guaranty

“If Owner executes a Pet Addendum to a lease with a tenant allowing a pet at the Property and Manager receives the Pet Fee referenced in the Pet Addendum, then Manager hereby agrees to pay Owner for damage to the Property caused by the pet in excess of amounts withheld from the tenant’s Security Deposit. This guaranty shall not exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) and shall apply only if Manager procured the tenant, approved the pet and received the Pet Fee. This guaranty shall not apply to emotional support or service animals at the Property.”

This means that if a tenant’s pet causes damage to your rental property, we will cover up to $1,000 of repair costs after applying the tenant’s security deposit. For example, if the tenant had a $1,000 security deposit, and the tenant’s pet caused $1,800 worth of damages, we would use the tenant’s security deposit, PLUS pay the remaining $800 of repair bills, to ensure that the repair gets taken care of.

90 Day Money Back Guaranty

“If Owner is not pleased with the services of Manager for any reason and terminates this Agreement within the first 90 days after the Effective Date, then Manager shall refund to Owner the management fee paid to Manager pursuant to section 5(a) above for such period up to 90 days.”

We don’t expect you’ll need this guarantee, but in the event that you’re not pleased with our services for ANY REASON in the first 90 days of our agreement, we’ll give you a full refund of the management fees you paid to us. Your satisfaction is important to us!

Six Month Tenant Replacement Guaranty

“If a tenant procured by Manager defaults under the lease and is removed during the first six months of the lease term, then Manager shall waive or reduce the leasing fee payable pursuant to section 5(b) above for procuring a replacement tenant to the extent of Owner’s financial loss caused by such default.”

Our goal is to keep your rental property tenant-occupied, and that’s why we work hard to procure responsible, paying tenants who are unlikely to default on their lease agreement. However, in the event that a tenant vacates or is removed from your rental property within the first six months of their lease, we’ll find a replacement tenant for free.

Financial Reporting

Top-notch record keeping and an exceptional accounting process are at the core of our business philosophy and are essential to maintaining the quality of management that meet the expectations of our clients. We are experts in financial reporting for property management. A rental property should be treated like a business and the ability to gather information and make rational decisions concerning your business’ financial status depends on accurate, detailed records and concise reports and statements. You can rest easy knowing that our books balance and that every cent is accounted for.

As part of our financial reporting for property management services, we hold tenant security deposits in escrow and make sure all applicable state and federal laws regarding the holding of deposits are strictly followed, limiting the liability of our clients at no additional cost. We encourage tenants to pay rent electronically so their payments clear our accounts fast and we can pay our clients as quickly as possible. After all, it’s their money; we just collect it for them.

A Certified Public Accountant (CPA) resides on our staff and is directly responsible for the accounting and financial reporting processes for all of the properties we manage. Comprehensive annual financial statements, as well as all relevant tax materials, are provided for each property each year before tax-time. Financial reporting for property management has never been better or easier.

Every month, an income statement is prepared and sent electronically corresponding with the monthly owner distribution which is direct deposited into the owner’s account. Additionally, owners can review a wide variety of other financial reports, from rent rolls to budget-to-actual comparative statements, at their leisure through our secure web-portal owner management system. Be sure to contact us if you’d like more information about our financial reporting for property management clients.

Online Access Portal

In an effort to better serve our clients and tenants alike, Central Florida Property Management provides secure online access with a unique online identifier and password for both owners and renters. Online access for property management clients is just one of the great benefits of working with Central Florida Property Management.

Using their custom login, clients can create and access a wide array of financial statements and reports, review paperwork (such as leases, lease addendums and management agreements), view copies of work receipts, quotes, and invoices and even post manager requests, all without picking up the phone or writing an email. Our goal is to make the management of their property as clear and convenient as possible for each and every one of our clients.

With online access for property management, tenants are able to apply to rent a property (and pay the application fee), review account balances, securely pay rent and other charges, enter and track maintenance requests, and access leases and other documents. Rents can be paid with either a checking account or a credit card, for added convenience.

We believe that our clients and tenants deserve absolute transparency and 24-hour access to information regarding their property. With online access for property management, our goal is to provide just that. Whether from a laptop, tablet, or smart phone, PC, Mac, or Android we encourage all of our tenants and clients to explore the many features of our website and experience first-hand just how easy it is to use. If you have any questions regarding the extent of these services please contact us.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Central Florida Property Management is locally owned and operated by a true Central Florida native. Steve grew up in Central Florida and, after earning his Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Georgia Tech, returned to Orlando and started his Orlando property management business. He has deep roots in the area, cares about its progress and has a vested interest in the community. Who else could properly care for your investment? Steve brings a high level of passion, commitment and professionalism to the company. He takes great care to hire quality people that provide superior service. Even with the rapid growth of Central Florida Property Management, Steve strives to maintain a personal touch in all transactions. He maximizes the efficiencies brought by today’s technology while maintaining personal contact with all clients, tenants, maintenance staff and others that keep the company running smoothly and resourcefully.
Central Florida Property Management specializes in the management of single family homes for tenancies generally equaling or exceeding one year. Due to our tourist economy, Florida law requires tenancies of 7 months or less to be classified as ‘transient’ or hotel stays in layman’s terms, and additional state taxes and fees apply. We currently do not manage short term rental homes but would be happy to refer you to some great companies who do!
Absolutely not. But, should you decide to sell, we would love to talk to you about how we can help you in that matter as well.
In the State of Florida, there is no licensing requirement to manage property. Steve IS a licensed real estate agent and Certified Public Accountant (CPA), but he would rather perform Orlando property management than help you with your taxes.
We leave any direct communication between owners and tenants completely up to the owner. Most owners prefer to ‘stay in the shadows’ and let us handle all tenant interaction. However, some owners prefer a more hands-on approach and we are happy to accommodate them in doing so. Our leases are designed to reflect this philosophy as well - tenants are not given access to owners without express permission from the owner of the occupied property.
Not only can we, but we prefer to pay owners via direct deposit. We also encourage tenants to set up automatic electronic payments to pay their rent and have a secure banking website available to accept and transfer funds. Owner distributions, as well as prior month financial statements, are typically made between the 10th and 15th of the month.  Using our online access for property management, you have access to this information anytime!
We do not require our owners to allow us to hold reserve cash for future repairs, but recommend that they do so either on their own or through our accounting services. We require owner approval for all expenses greater than $750.
Tenants, as well as owners, have the ability to submit maintenance requests directly into our online management system or, more traditionally, through a phone call or email which is then entered into our online management system allowing owners the ability to track the status of maintenance. We aim to address maintenance requests in a timely manner so as to cause minimal damage to the house and minimal frustration for tenants. Our leases dictate that repairs for wear-and-tear items are covered by the owner while tenant-caused repairs are the obligation of the tenant, which we believe is the fairest system possible. We try to respond to all communications, maintenance requests included, within 2 hours.
We use ONLY licensed and insured businesses and professionals and have a list of companies that have a proven relationship with us and that we have had excellent experience with. We strive to maintain the rapport we have built with them, which leads to preferential treatment for the properties we manage, and often significant cost savings over typical pricing. We are always looking to add to our list of contractors! If you have a particular company you would like us to use on your property or just a company you would like to recommend, just let us know.
Our management agreement was crafted by a Winter Park-based real estate attorney with over 35 years of experience. It was designed to comply effortlessly with Florida law and to explicitly state the terms of the agreement between the owner and Central Florida Property Management. A draft copy of our management agreement is available upon request.
Our standard lease agreement was crafted by a Winter Park-based real estate attorney with over 35 years of experience. It complies with all Florida real estate laws and has been explicitly designed to insure that all parties understand their obligations under the contract. We believe that cooperation between landlords and tenants is preferable to a hostile environment and our lease agreement reflects this philosophy. It has been fashioned to ensure that owners, their property, and tenants are all protected from unscrupulous acts by other parties. A draft copy of our lease is available upon request. We are a management company, not a leasing company, and we permit our owners to use their own leases if they so choose. Our lease is simply available for their use should they choose to use it.

I have completed a year of leasing my home with CFPM. Steve and his team have been very supportive and informative throughout the year. Peggy has managed all property affairs with distinction. Debra maintains the accounts carefully which are always accessible through the website and are a great help when preparing tax returns. I appreciate Steve’s valuable advice and managerial skills. I would gladly recommend CFPM to anyone looking for a property manager.

I'm extremely grateful I landed with Steve and his team for property management. I have two investment properties in central Florida managed by them and I don't have to worry about anything. Ryan (my main point of contact) and Steve are on top of every single little thing. When I need to get involved, they already have a few options for me. Payments are right on time and their system is easy to use and provides me with all the information I need.

We have nothing but great things to say about Steve and the Central Florida Property Management staff. I briefly worked with Steve back when I was helping my mom with her property. Steve helped her transition from self managing the property to a fully capable professional Management company. With complete ease, Steve got my moms property back to a fully functional state. Thank you!

After 6 long months of trying to sell my condo in Orlando without success, I began to consider renting it instead. I have never been a landlord before, and I live 1000 miles away from Orlando, so I decided to look into a local company to help me manage renting my property. I was very lucky to find Central Florida Property Management.Mr. Fred Jackson visited my condo and gave me excellent recommendations, and took the responsibility to hire various companies for painting and repairs. Everything was very reasonably priced. I feel that Fred went above and beyond, all while finding quality tenants in less than 45 days. Unbelievably easy, and he was able to walk me through every step of the process. He continues to manage my rental property to this day. I highly recommend Central Florida Property Management. No worries, no problems, and made the entire process so much easier than I thought it could be. 5/5 stars!Karen Rose

We found the central property management company online by coincidence. It has been almost a year since we handed over our apartment in Florida to them. Since we live in Hong Kong, we must have a reliable management company to manage the property. Steve and Fred can provide professional services and correct information, which makes us and the tenant very satisfied. Thanks for their help!

I would like to thank Steve and Ryan for the excellent service they provided to us as property owners so far. Always Professional and prompt communication. Steve took good care of the property from day one. He oversaw the renovation for us and got it rent ready really quick and it didn't take too long before we had a good tenant in place! Great job Steve, Ryan and the rest of the team. I highly recommend CFL for property management!

Worst rental experience I've ever had. Devin was a nightmare to work with. After having many issues with an old refrigerator it was finally replaced with another used one that was infested with roaches in the insides. They refused to replace it and instead offered to send an exterminator. I explained the severity of the infestation and that all the tiny dead roaches were inside the icemaker and in all the little holes in the back of the unit. I explained it wasn't usable and I didn't want to keep my groceries in there. I decided to move since they refused to replace it and it was an ongoing issue. I was constantly inconvenienced with having the pest guy and repair guy having to come out and me having to take off work to let them in. Devin was incompetent to resolve anything. He was impatient with me and rude on the phone. I am a good tenant who always pays rent on time and I expected better treatment then what I received. Renter beware!

Can't say enough good about Steve, Derick, and Bleu. Central Florida Property Management is the best.

They also gave great advice about making a good offer, that was accepted.

Steve and Fred have been phenomenal. I’ve had issues with tenants in the past and it was such a big relief to have Fred take care of the logistics of it. If there was any underlying issue or concern, it was attentively addressed and resolved in a timely manner. Steve is affable and his expedited responses to my concerns and ques
