You can mail checks to PO Box 4153, Scott City, MO 63780 or drop in door slot of our office at 609 2nd Street in Scott City (next to post office).  Please do not leave or send cash.  Each month, after your payment, we will mail or email you a payment receipt, showing current balance.

Late Payments

If your payment is not made in full by the 8th you will accessed a $25.00 late payment charge.  If your payment is still not paid in full by the 16th you will be accessed another $25.00 late payment charge.

If you are not going to have a full payment by the 16th it is very important that you communicate with us before the 16th.  The best way to comunciate is to send a text explaining when we can expect payment or include a note with your partial payment.

Please do not get more than a month behind.  If you are a month behind we have most likely started the eviction process.  Legal fees for an eviction run about $400.00 you will have to pay this amount in addtion to the past due rent amounts.

Weekend work:  We typically do not work on weekends.  However if you have an emergency such as broken or frozen water lines, heat or air conditioning not working contact us and we will work to correct the problem.  To reach us on the weekend  call or text the (573)264-0011 number.  Be sure to leave a message and the message will be checked.  In the event of heat or air not working we most likely will not be able to fix it until part stores are open on Monday, but can bring you space heaters or portable AC.

Inspections

We will conduct a home inspection 3 months after you move in and every 6 months after that.  During the inspection we will take care of any minor repair issues we see or you bring to our attention.  Typically we do inspections the last week of the month.  We will send an inspection notice along with your rent receipt at the beginning of the month and text you a reminder message a few days before the inspection.  It is your option to be present, or not, or schedule a different time for the inspection.

Future Homeowners 101

Try not to make your home summer in the winter and winter in the summer.  Recommended thermosat settings are 68 or below in the winter and 76 or above in the summer.  Also if you are going to be gone for several hours you should turn the thermosat down (in winter, up in summer) 5 degrees.  Following this suggestions will help you save a good chunk of change on your utilities.

Drains do not like grease.  If you have a greasy dish you should wipe it out with a paper towel and throw that and the excess grease in the trash.

If wait to long small repairs turn into big repairs.  Example:  A leaking drain.  Caught quickly cost almost nothing to fix.  Left unfixed will eventually result in having to replace the cabinet and floor under the drain.
