Maintenance Minimize

Maintenance costs are not covered by the management fees.  You are not required to use our maintenance services.  When a tenant calls us about a maintenance issue we create a Service Ticket.  Then we can give that service ticket to our maintenance department, send it to the property owner, or send it to the property owner's designated service contractor. 

Our maintenance service trip charge is $55 within Marion County and $65 to immediately surrounding counties. 

Costs to Evict Minimize

Evictions involve the following costs:

  • Attorney Fees: $150  (This is for an uncontested eviction - about 90% are uncontested)
  • Court costs:  $85  (current rate, subject to change and varies slightly by jurisdiction)
  • Court writ:  $13  (this is an order to the court constable to serve notice on the tenant)
  • Processing fee to KP:  $25
  • Court appearance by KP staff member:  $75  (most cases do not require appearance by KP staff)

Total cost for the majority of evictions is $150+$85+$13+$25 = $273.  In most eviction cases we are granted possession by the court within 3 weeks of filing suit.
