While each lease will vary, we typically offer a one year leasing contract with automatic monthly renewals after the initial term expires. Renewal on a yearly period or month-to-month. Rental payments are to be received ON or BEFORE the due date. If you are mailing your payment, do so as early as possible to be sure it is delivered to our office in a timely fashion. Southern Management Rentals takes timely rent payment very seriously; late fees are automatically posted the day after the due date. There is no grace period for late payments, no exceptions. Rents are typically due from the 25th-28th of each month, please read your lease very carefully to know when your due date is. Be sure your name and rental address is clearly listed on your check/money order. If we do not know where to apply monies received, you may not receive credit for your payment.
During non-business hours, we have a drop slot located in our office door. Please place your check or money order into an envelope marked “SMR” to ensure your payment is received.
Southern Management Rentals requires all tenants to obtain renters insurance prior to taking possession. Renters insurance should cover both liability and personal property. Renters insurance is important for tenants because property owners only insure the physical building for liability and fire. If you are looking for a recommendation on where and how to obtain renters insurance, please email us: [email protected].

Congress passed the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992, also known as Title X, to protect families from exposure to lead from paint, dust, and soil. Section 1018 of this law directed HUD and EPA to require the disclosure of known information on lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards before the sale or lease of most housing built before 1978. This is important for our renters to know the hazards of lead paint, click below to view the EPA’s PDF pamphlets regarding lead paint.

Pennsylvania Law requires real estate brokers and salespersons (licensees) to advise consumers who are seeking to sell or purchase residential or commercial real estate or tenants who are seeking to lease residential or commercial real estate where the licensee is working on behalf of the tenant of the business relationships permitted by the Real Estate Licensing and Registration Act. This notice must be provided to the consumer at the first contact where a substantive discussion about real estate occurs unless an oral disclosure has been previously provided. If the oral disclosure was provided, this notice must be provided at the first meeting or the first time a property is shown to the consumer by the broker or salesperson.
