Do you handle Evictions?

The Blue Atlas team acts as facilitators providing attorneys we partner with the necessary information for successful eviction. We will make the introduction, but the legal services agreement and client agreement will be between you and the attorney.

How will repairs work?

Remember how we are always looking to protect your investment? We take repairs very seriously and always keep properties up to the standards that will attract and keep good tenants. However, this is where experience with our personal investment portfolio becomes key. We will not approve extraneous requests and diligently investigate any damage that could be caused by the Tenant. Repairs over $350 require owner approval. The only exception to this is an emergency caused by fire, water, gas, etc., that puts the occupants in danger or the asset at risk of extreme damage.
