We Stay Informed On Virginia Property Laws, So You Don't Have To

Did you know that, by Virginia Law, the security deposit is not allowed to exceed the amount of two months rent? Or, that a landlord must return the security deposit within 45 days of the tenant moving out? How about the fact that in Virginia, unlike Maryland, you’re required to have a broker’s license?

These are all laws that could significantly affect you if you don’t follow them to the tee. We stay up-to-date on all local laws and regulations in Fairfax County:

  • When and how to terminate tenancy changes based on the reason behind the eviction
  • You can’t charge your tenants any more than a $50 fee for a bounced check
  • You must give 24-hours notice to your tenants before entering their unit, unless they’ve requested maintenance

Many other laws regulate landlord-tenant relationships, and it can be hard to keep track of them. But one small mistake can lead to legal battles and a significant loss of money. There are also certain things a landlord must disclose to their tenants, such as:

  • An itemized list of damages they’re being charged for
  • Details on smoke detectors in the unit
  • Recent flooding in the unit
  • Condemnation orders

There are even more laws you have to follow as a landlord. But if you, like many other people leasing their properties, have a day job, staying informed on the ever-changing property laws can become time-consuming.

This is where Nomadic Real Estate comes in. It’s our job to stay informed. Don’t spend any more time and money on your property and turn it into an investment. Work with a professional property management company today.

What Our Fairfax Clients Have To Say​

Ray was very helpful, answered all my questions related to property rental. He is absolutely a pleasure to work with. I reached out to them 3 years ago to get my home rented quickly as we were moving temporarily to another state. Exceptional professional service, I was advised on the right steps to have my property rented. I have already recommended them to three of my friends. Very happy I found Nomadic!

Brittany Armstrong

About 2 years ago we had to move abroad and were desperately looking for a trustworthy property management company. Nomadic was recommended to us by a friend and we couldn’t be happier now. It’s been 2 years since Nomadic was hired. They are taking excellent care of our property, and tenants as well. I love working with them and would recommend Nomadic to anyone seeking people-first property management services!

Understanding the Ledger

Your portal includes a ledger with all transactions. The ledger is populated with data in real-time as transactions flow through our accounting software. Much of this information is also available in the Reports area, as well as the Statements in your Documents library, but the ledger is the most comprehensive resource for diving into the details. 

Please scroll through the sections below to get a better understanding of how to interpret the ledger. 

By default, transactions are sorted chronologically:

Owner Ledger Dates
  • The date reflected in the lefthand column is the actual transaction date, not the “bill date”. This is the date the transaction was actually processed. 

If you have multiple properties with Nomadic, you'll see the address for each transaction in the "Location" column:

Ledger Property Column
  • You can filter the ledger to look at just one property, all properties, or specific sets of properties. 
  • If you only have one property with us, you’ll just see the ledger for that property. 

The Description column displays the transaction type:

Owner Ledger Description Column
  • BILL: this is an expense transaction, such as for repair costs or management fees.
  • CHARGE: this is a transaction  billed to the tenant, most typically a rent payment. 
  • NACHA EXPORT: this is a credit we processed to your distribution account. This type of transaction is how you get paid! 

The Amount column shows the dollar value of each transaction:

Owner Ledger Amount Column
  • Positive Amounts: if an amount is positive, it reflects a transaction that is payable to you. Typically, this will be a rent payment that we collected from your tenants. On occasion, a positive number could also signify a journal entry or credit adjustment. 
  • Negative Amounts:  if an amount is negative, this is a transaction that is either payable to Nomadic or is an amount that has already been paid to you. Typically this will be for repair costs or management/leasing fees. Owner draws (net distributions into your checking/savings account) also reflect as negative amounts, since they have already been paid to you. 

The Account Balance column shows a sum of positive/negative transactions at a given point in time:

Owner Ledger Account Balance Column
  • Account Balance should always equal zero after a net distribution has been processed. When the balance is zero, this means that all expenses have been paid and you’ve received the remainder as net operating income, leaving a balance of zero (meaning: no one is due any money, as all funds have been distributed appropriately). 

Navigating the Propertyware Owner Portal

Your portal includes some extremely useful features that help you understand your property’s financial performance at a new level, with real-time transparency into every transaction.

How do net distributions work?

Net distributions keep your accounting clean and simple. Each month we’ll collect rent from the tenants, deduct any repair expenses for the previous month and any management/leasing fees for the current month, and credit the remaining net operating income to your account. 

Net Distribution

You’ll receive a statement via email each time a net distribution is processed, and can view all transaction details in your Propertyware owner portal.
