Tenant screening is a specialty at Robert Massey Company. Using decades of experience to tweak this procedure, we independently score each applicant in the following three areas to make a determination whether or not they qualify: 1) assuring sufficient income and its stability, 2) reviewing credit history and, 3) carefully reviewing their housing history. These three areas are reviewed in a legal and unbiased manner consistent with Federal, State and Local Fair Housing Laws in order to arrive at an intelligent and reliable decision.
We pride ourselves in renting to applicants who usually get their full deposits back. It is testament to our high-level screening when a resident receives his or her security deposit back in full. Any damage beyond normal wear and tear is retained from the security deposit. In the rare cases in which a security deposit is not sufficient to cover damage costs, we pursue them for any balance due on behalf of our owner/clients.
As part of our normal duties we prepare a customized time-tested lease agreement for each approved renter. This document is typically signed at our in-office lease closing in which many policies and procedures are covered to assure a smooth transition for our residents into their new rental home or place of business.
Highlands Area Information
The Highlands was the last area near downtown Louisville to be urbanized, since its steep 60 foot incline above the flood plain made travel difficult, and the area showed no signs of urban development until just before the Civil War. Several notable families did own plantations in what is now called the Highlands, spurred by the Louisville and Bardstown Turnpike (today's Bardstown Road). The turnpike was first planned as early as 1784, but authorization to begin construction was delayed until 1819, and thwarted then by the Panic of 1819. Funds were finally allocated in 1829, with construction beginning in 1832. Source From Wikipedia
