Our Philosophy: The better a property looks the better tenant you will attract.

Property Inspections

Need to safeguard your investment? Verify through inspection. Property inspections shield a property against unanticipated outcomes and common ownership problems.


Each time we receive a repair request, we take this as a chance to walk through the entire property to confirm that nothing has been destroyed and that the terms of the lease are being followed. Your rental property management agreement includes J&K Properties and Management inspection services to make sure the conditions of the lease are being followed and there are no property damages.

Move-in / Move-out

Need help moving in new tenants? Our property managers will prepare the lease, collect the first full month’s rent and a security deposit equal to one month’s rent. Our comprehensive

rental property move-in services come with every residential property management package.


J&K Properties and Management requires security deposit and first month’s rent prior to taking processing of the property.

Leave the details to us. J&K Properties and Management takes care of all of the move-in specifics to make sure your tenants are settled in and your investments are protected. J&K Properties and Management property managers will lead the tenants on the initial walkthrough of the property to explain any features and how to use them. From demoing the dishwasher to answering questions about pool upkeep, our property managers will ensure the tenants are comfortable in their new home. The tenant will be equipped with any keys, remotes, or alarm codes they will need, and J&K Properties and Management will design a customized property manual for clear easy access to information that outlines proper maintenance. The property manager will take the tenant through all of the necessary paperwork to answer any questions and make expectations clear, while establishing a trusting relationship from the very beginning.

Tenant Move-Out Management:

When transitioning between tenants, our property managers provide a smooth move-out. They will meet with the tenants for a final walkthrough, where they can document the condition and prepare for the Make Ready process. Our staff will collect the keys and check for accurate contact information and forwarding addresses to proceed with the security deposit return process.

Rent Collection

No rent, no profit. Fortunately, J&K Properties and Management has streamlined the rent collection process for tenants and owners. We offer your tenants Three easy ways to pay rent, allowing owners to collect rent faster and more efficiently than if rent payment options were limited.


Once we receive the rent, we send you the deposits through a secure online rent payment system created with our partner, PNC Bank. Both you and your tenant benefit from such a quick and simple process.

When collection goes sour, we handle that, too. Standard services include FREE evictions when we place the tenant. If rent is not received by the due date stated on the renter’s lease agreement, we mail the required Notice of Intent to File a Complaint for Summary Ejectment.  The tenant is then given 10 days from the date of the notice to comply before our J&K Properties and Management team files a Failure to Pay Rent Notice with the District Court and appear on your behalf at Court.  After judgment is awarded, if the tenant still hasn’t brought the account current, we will file a Warrant of Restitution which will evict the tenant and give us the property back.  The quick responses of the J&K team cut down on missed rent payments and removal of non-performing tenants.  All of these services come at a discount fee when you hire us to manage your rental property.

Benefit of Using J&K Properties

Discover Southern Maryland

Southern Maryland is a geographical, cultural and historic region in Maryland composed of the state’s southernmost counties on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. According to the state of Maryland, the region includes all of Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s counties and the southern portions of Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties.

Southern Maryland is considered by historians to be the birthplace of religious freedom in North America.

Southern Maryland was traditionally a rural, agricultural, oyster fishing and crabbing region; linked by passenger and freight steamboat routes. These steamboat routes operated on the Chesapeake Bay and major rivers until the 1930s before the building of highways and the Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge on U.S. Highway 301. (The latter highway was named after Robert Crain, an attorney who owned the state’s largest farm, Mount Victoria, and who campaigned for the road’s construction). Weekend excursion boats also carried Washingtonians to small amusement parks and amusement pavilions at numerous Potomac shore locations. From 1949 (1943 in some places) to 1968, the region was known for its poverty and its slot machine gambling.

During recent times, the region experienced suburban development as the Washington suburbs expanded southward. This expansion took place primarily in Prince George’s County, and around Waldorf (a regional shopping hub) and St. Charles (a planned community in Charles County), Lexington Park (St. Mary’s County) and Prince Frederick (Calvert County). However, as noted, land-use maps show that the area is still primarily low-density.

Many southern Marylanders work at Andrews Air Force Base, the U.S. Census Bureau or at Patuxent River Naval Air Station and its related industries. Other smaller industries include a nuclear power plant and a liquified natural gas terminal (both in Lusby), a Naval ordnance test ground (at Indian Head), electric power plants (at Aquasco and Morgantown) and an oil terminal (at Piney Point). The beautiful towns of Solomons Island and Chesapeake Beach are favorite weekend tourist resorts. Maryland International Raceway and Budds Creek Raceway near Chaptico attract many auto and motocross racing enthusiasts.

While the steamboats are long gone, more than three-quarters of the land area is still rural, a mixture of forest and farmland. Oysters are still widely available although they were once fished from the bay and it’s tidal tributaries in greater numbers, and are served either fried, raw, or stuffed. “Rockfish”, the Maryland word for striped bass, is considered the most prized fish dish in Southern Maryland. Perhaps the most notable food dish originating from Southern Maryland is stuffed ham, which includes cabbage, kale, onions, spices and seasonings that are chopped and mixed, then stuffed into deep slits slashed in a whole, corned ham.
