Notes: It is up to landlord, if they want to keep utilities in their names that is fine, they can also have utilities in the tenant’s name. Tenant may need to show proof of residency if there is an outstanding balance owed. The security deposit is determined on roughly how much the property’s usage will be. Security deposit can be added to first month’s bill and if switched into tenant’s name, within a year the security deposit will be transferred back by check.  

Questions that are asked when transferring a company’s utilities: Need address of the company, property name/company name, tax identification number (if you are transferring an individual’s utilities and not a company, you will need their social security number), credit check done on company name, what is the primary source of heat? Is the water heater gas or electric? They will allow you to enter a different mailing address for the bill to be sent to. Multiple bills may be sent out at no extra cost. If utilities are in the tenant’s name, the tenant must request this otherwise, we will nor will the landlord be able to have access to bill. Change of service cannot be faxed, person must call in themselves. We can call on a persons’ behalf only if we have verification information so it is good to get the client’s social security number. Ohio Edison sends bills every month and they attempt to take the meter reading every month.

I just rented a home from Realty Trust, which I love.... Glenn is AWESOME! He was very professional, fast and prompt. He went above and beyond by repairing something that wasn't on the current work order. Not many folks offer that type of customer service these days and I appreciate it. 


Carolyn Slade

What sold me on Realty Trust was their marketing system for securing new tenants. What has kept me loyal as a client has been their attention to my properties, treating them as if they were their own, and their exceptional service.
