30 Day Deposit Refund Utah law allows any Landlord 30 days from the time the property is vacated to refund any amounts of the deposit that are remaining.  All amounts will be send via check to the forwarding address provided by the tenant.   A final accounting statement along with any receipts for work performed will be included.

Late Fee  All rents are due on the first of each month and considered late after the fifth.  Late fees are equal to 10% of the monthly rent.  If only a portion of the rent is paid by the fifth the entire late fee will still be assessed.

Non Sufficient Funds Fee  Any and all bounced checks and Electronic Funds Transfers will be charged a $40 NSF fee.  As well rent will be considered as paid late for the month and subject to the 10% late fee as stated above.

Lease Approvals-  Once an application has been approved we will hold that approval for no longer than 48 business hours without a signed lease contract.    Once the lease contract has been signed  tenants will then have 24 business hours to log into the website and make the deposit and lease initiation fee payment.   We will not hold a vacant unit with a signed contract and a full deposit any longer than 2 weeks from the time of lease signing to the lease commencement date.  

Roommate Transfers  BRIM Properties does allow for roommate transfers with a lease in place.   Roommate transfer criteria is as follows:

  1. The tenant(s) leaving or the tenants remaining in the property will be responsible to find the replacement roommate.  BRIM Properties will not advertise, show, or in other anyway try to find a replacement roommate.
  2. BRIM Properties will not deal with deposits or pro-rations of rent from out-going and incoming tenants.  It is the responsibility of the parties coming in and going out to deal with between them.  BRIM Properties will only deal with deposits once all contractual obligations have been fulfilled and all residents have vacated the property.   When all tenants have vacated the property and the account is settled, only one (1) deposit refund check will be issued to one resident of whom the roommates all elect to receive it.  It will be the responsibility of that tenant to disperse funds to other residents for deposit refunds.
  3. All potential tenants must fill out an application on the website and be approved by BRIM Properties.   BRIM Properties has full authority to deny an application for a new roommate based on the usual criteria as outlined under the section General Policies as listed on our website.   All parties will be notified by email when the new applicant has been approved.  Both the out-going and in-coming tenants will need to make an appointment to come into the BRIM Properties office to sign the lease transfer document. 
  4. Keys, mail, and garage door openers will not be provided for or exchanged by BRIM Properties.  It will be the responsibility of the out-going and incoming roommates to exchange said items.
  5. There will be a one-time Roommate Transfer Fee of $300 paid to BRIM Properties at the time the lease and transfer documents are signed.   Transfer fee must be paid with certified funds. No new tenants will be allowed to occupy the property until they have received an approval on their application, signed the Roommate Transfer Document, and the Roommate Transfer Fee has been paid.
