Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Stokley Properties a Bay Area property management company is announcing an Eviction Protection Program that is being offered to all of their clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Concord, San Ramon, Brentwood, Martinez and Oakland. They are releasing this program now because of the rise in evictions and the company’s desire to offer a service to their loyal clients.
“This is important because the number of evictions is up due to the current poor economic times we are experiencing. The concerns landlords have these days is how much will evictions cost and how long will they take. Our program takes the worry out of that,” said Joseph Stokley Jr. of Stokley Properties.
People know evictions can happen to any landlord no matter how well the tenant is screened. Circumstances change in people’s lives and sometimes they are not able to pay the rent. This is especially true when people lose their jobs, get a divorce or suffer a serious injury. When they aren’t able to pay the rent they can also find it difficult to find the money to move. When this happens the property owner has to go through a costly procedure of evicting the tenant.
Each month there are thousands of evictions filed in the area and with the real unemployment rate at 16.4 percent there are a lot of people on the edge of being evicted. According to the Contra Costa Times, there has been a 46 percent increase in evictions cases handled by the Bay Area Legal Aid of Oakland in 2009 and 2010.
The Bay Area’s Stokley Properties, serving Concord, San Ramon, Brentwood, Martinez and Oakland, is offering the eviction protection program to clients for the small fee of $10 per month for each unit. This program will cover the cost of all non-jury trial evictions.
“We pay for everything from beginning to end. The landlord will be covered,” Joseph Stokley added.
Stokley Properties believes that this will be a well-received service by their clients during these turbulent economic times being a landlord.
