Update: One Miami Notice
I have had a chance to review the revised lease application checklist that is now required by the association at One Miami. There have been a few changes made to the leasing requirements that must be met prior to tenant approval. The revisions were made by the One Miami Board of Directors as mentioned in my previous post entitled “One Miami Notice“. In addition to a common area’s deposit equal to one month’s rent, the One Miami association has implemented a building pet deposit of $250.00 which is non-refundable. The common areas deposit is refundable as long as damages are not made by the tenant during the length of the lease. Another significant change made by the One Miami association is that a maximum of one lease will be allowed over any 12 month period. Previously, they had allowed a maximum of two leases per year. It seems that the Board of Directors feels that eliminating short-term rentals could be a good way of alleviating some of the tenant problems. Lastly, the revised application checklist mentions that all maintenance payments must be paid to date prior to any tenant application processing. All other fees and regulations have remained the same.
Although these changes will put a damper on the rental business that I conduct at One Miami, I feel that this is a move in the right direction for condo owners there. While investors in the building may be negatively affected in the short run, I feel that the long term investment picture at One Miami has improved as a result of these changes.
