Southern Management Rentals offers an emergency hotline outside of normal business hours for the following purposes: no running water, no electric, no heat, fire, gas leak and flooding. If your emergency falls outside of our regular office hours (8am-5pm), please call our office at: 717-880-7017. Please leave a detailed voicemail or text, with your full name, full property address and reason for concern. This voice mailbox is monitored after business hours.

If you are locked out of your rental unit, the tenant is responsible for calling a lock smith and will be responsible for all charges.

While each lease will vary, we typically offer a one year leasing contract with automatic monthly renewals after the initial term expires. Renewal on a yearly period or month-to-month. Rental payments are to be received ON or BEFORE the due date. If you are mailing your payment, do so as early as possible to be sure it is delivered to our office in a timely fashion. Southern Management Rentals takes timely rent payment very seriously; late fees are automatically posted the day after the due date. There is no grace period for late payments, no exceptions. Please read your lease very carefully to know when your due date is. Be sure your name and rental address is clearly listed on your check/money order. If we do not know where to apply monies received, you may not receive credit for your payment.

During non-business hours, we have a drop slot located in our office door. Please place your check or money order into an envelope marked “SMR” to ensure your payment is received.

Southern Management Rentals requires all tenants to obtain renters insurance prior to taking possession. Renters insurance should cover both liability and personal property. Renters insurance is important for tenants because property owners only insure the physical building for liability and fire. If you are looking for a recommendation on where and how to obtain renters insurance, please email us:

It is imperative that written permission is required for you to have any pet/pets living in your rental unit as some units allow pets and some do not. Depending on the owner of the unit, there may be additional deposits or fees if pets are allowed. If you are currently leasing from us please contact us directly if you would like to get a pet, this is very important to communicate to our office to request approval, prior to introducing your pet to your home. If a pet is found in your unit and a formal request or approval was not made, the owner will be notified and you will need to pay a $500 cleaning fee plus remove the pet from the premises. Dog breeds that are not allowed in any rental unit: Pit Bull, Rottweiler, Akita, Doberman, Chow, Mastiff, Presa Canario, Ovcharka, Fila Brasiliero, Cane Corso or Beauceron.

Let’s Hear What Our Tenants Say

Don’t trust our words. Let’s hear directly from our tenants and their experience with us.

Southern Management Rentals has redefined what it means to be a tenant. From prompt responses to maintenance requests to their commitment to creating a positive community atmosphere, my experience has been nothing short of exceptional. Living in an SMR-managed property feels like being part of a caring and professional community.

What sets SMR apart is their proactive approach to maintenance. I've experienced other property management companies, but none compare to the level of care and attention SMR provides. Routine maintenance checks and timely repairs have made me feel truly valued as a tenant. It's clear that they prioritize the well-being and satisfaction of their residents.

Communication is key in any landlord-tenant relationship, and SMR excels in this aspect. From lease agreements to updates on property enhancements, the team ensures that tenants are kept informed. This transparency fosters trust, and I appreciate knowing that I'm renting from a management company that values open communication.
