Eviction Shield Protection (ESP) is offered by United Properties of West Michigan. Uninterrupted cash flow for our owners is one of our top priorities. This program was developed in response to concerns expressed by our owners/clients over the rising costs of evictions.
As the leader in full-service residential property management, United Properties makes every effort possible to screen our tenants and go the extra mile to avoid potential problems. However, it is inevitable that there may come a time when some renters will need to be evicted due to their life circumstances or poor decisions. If you are enrolled in the ESP, United Properties will assume the up-front financial burden of the eviction as a company expense, not to be charged to the owner like other property management companies.
The cost-effective program protects owners from the high cost and the time-consuming headaches that come with evicting a tenant.
For a small monthly fee of only $10.00 per month/per unit, our ESP will cover the cost of virtually all evictions. This could save you between $200-400 or more. By enrolling in the ESP, security deposits can be preserved and applied directly to any lost rent, damages, and/or any other fees you are entitled to recover from the tenant as you would expect United Properties pays for your eviction in full.
