Baltimore City Landlords
A “limited lead-free” inspection certificate is a certificate in which only the interior surfaces of an Affected Property are lead-free, but the exterior painted
surfaces of the Affected Property are not lead-free. In order to pass an inspection for a limited lead-free certificate, all exterior paint of the Affected Property must be intact. A limited
lead-free inspection certificate has a two-year expiration date. Every two years, owners must recertify that the Affected Property is free of chipping, peeling, or flaking paint. If the limited
lead-free inspection certificate expires and is not timely recertified by the owner, the owner must obtain a new limited lead-free inspection certificate for the Affected Property and pay MDE another
$10 lead processing fee per property/unit.

Understanding Your Upcoming Water Bill:

New 2018 Smoke Detector Law
A new law requiring a smoke detector on each level of a home is now in effect in Maryland.
The law requires that by January 1, 2018, a minimum of one smoke alarm is installed on every level of a home. Battery operated smoke alarms remain acceptable, but the law requires that the alarms be tamper proof and powered by long-life batteries, and possess hush button features to discourage unsafe removal.
New Water Billing System
In October of this year, the Department of Public Works (DPW) will start BaltiMeter Billing, a new water and sewer billing system that will enhance DPW's infrastructure and help to ensure customers receive efficient and reliable billing services. The below information affects only City customers at this time.

At Concord, we strive to obtain the trust and confidence of our clients. Our client's satisfaction with the personalized attention and full range of services that we provide is our company's goal.
If you are one of our existing clients, we would be honored if you took the time to provide a testimonial to share on this web-site for others to review. Please email us to submit your testimonial. A referral from a client is the ultimate compliment for any business, and at Concord, we also work very hard to establish a close, professional relationship with the tenants of the properties we manage. If you are one of our existing tenants or you have been one of our tenants in the past, we would appreciate your time to provide other prospective rental applicants with a testimonial about our company's service and management style.
A new client with Concord that we just leased their property shared: "That is fantastic, we really appreciate the effort that was put into finding a tenant."
"Thanks again for everything. You've been awesome and I truly mean that. This whole house rental thing was not a apart of my plan, but you made it palatable. Wish I was there to convey this in person. You run a tight ship and y'all are an excellent property management group."
"Thank you very much. I'm glad to see the extra renovations were worth doing. You do a great job if we've never told you that before. Thanks again."
"Thanks Tonya for all the help!! You've been great to help me finding the tenant in such short time frame. I will definitely refer my friends to you and concord property. Thanks."
"Gosh where do I begin- Concord Property Management saved us a lot of money and "stress" by doing what they do so well. From the first day, Tonya and her staff had been more than helpful to educate us with our many questions about our new experience in using a management company. It's the best thing we ever did, was hire Concord. Our monthly statements and deposits were always on time and without errors. I feel she is fair with both parties involved, and did a great job screening our tenant. You truly did make our lives less STRESSFUL! We would be more than happy to let Concord handle all our affairs again, should the need arise again. Thank you again."

"To Whom It May Concern: Concord Property Management has been handling my home as a rental property for 4 years. During that time, I have had not one complaint or misgiving regarding their business decisions. The company is above board on all aspects. They take great pride in their work, respond promptly to any situation that needs attention, and treat both the renter and owner with highest regard and respect. I would recommend them most highly- I am very, very pleased with this company. I can't imagine having to do this on my own!"

"Concord Properties has been managing my two units for over two years. They have always conducted themselves with the highest level of professionalism and integrity. There have been a few challenging situations that have come up during this past year in which Concord has gone above and beyond expectations to resolve. I highly recommend their services."
- Charlie Belt
"As a first time landlord I had a lot of anxiety over getting my property ready to be converted into a rental.The abundance of paperwork for registering the Rental Property, meeting MDE Lead Certification Regulations, and finding, screening good tenants to occupy the property was daunting for someone that works a full time job. I stumbled upon Concord Property Management in search for someone to help with the Lead Certification and what I actually found was a full service property manager that would coordinate all of the necessary paperwork, help get the property in shape for a lead inspection, perform the Lead Inspection and get the property good tenants. Over the last 2 years I have not had to do any maintenance or work associated with the property. The Concord team has handled everything from fixing windows, painting, fixing doors and coordination with tenants. Every month I receive the rent check, which is deposited directly into my account (talk about convenience) and a monthly Revenue/Expense statement. At the end of the year Concord also issues out 1099s for tax purposes, making my life a whole lot easier. Thank you to Tonya and the Concord team!"

Mr. Lurz does all the maintenance on my properties at a fair price. He does an outstanding job on any work that needs to be done. I will continue to use their services and I would encourage anyone who has rental properties and doesn't want the hassle to use their services."

"Concord Property Management has been handling our rental townhouse in Baltimore County for over 5 years. They handle all aspects of the rental including, at our request, any routine maintenance of the property We always receive the rent on time, along with a detailed spread sheet showing any expenditures for the month. If there are any major repairs that are needed we receive a call or e-mail with the explanation. Tonya and her husband Joel are first class and extremely professional. Our only regret is that we don’t have other rental properties for them to manage. We very highly recommend Tonya and Joel to handle any property management."
