GRG thoroughly screens applicants with regard to their ability to pay the rent. GRG will check employment, credit, criminal background, and rental history. Each applicant and occupant 18 years of age and older must complete a Texas Association of Realtors Residential Lease Application.
As a member of the Texas Association of Realtors, GRG will use their leasing forms and addendums. These forms and addendum provide you with the maximum protection if a dispute should arise.
Tenants are required to inspect the property and complete a Residential Lease Inventory and Condition Form upon move in. The property is inspected upon move-out and the two forms are compared. These inspections help ensure the proper deductions, above normal wear and tear, will be deducted from their deposit.
Tenants are required to pay a Security Deposit on or before the execution of the lease. The amount of the Security Deposit will vary depending on the amount of the rent and type of property. At a property where pets are allowed (Note: each owner will determine if pets are allowed or not, and if Pets are allowed what kind of pets) a Pet Addendum is used and an additional deposit, as well as a one-time non-refundable payment, may be required.
Rent is due on the 1st of the month and considered late on the 3rd of the month. Our rent collection procedures are fair but firm. In the event eviction is necessary, GRG will handle all aspects of the eviction process.
GRG handles maintenance and emergency repairs. When your property requires maintenance or repairs, GRG uses independent contractors that have been checked out by our management staff.

The area known as present-day La Vernia was first inhabited by indigenous American Indians of the Coahuiltecan speaking peoples of Texas and subsequently by nomadic bands of Apache and Comanche who migrated to Texas in the 17th century. One of the earliest land grants made was to Erastus "Deaf" Smith, also known as Deaf Smith. Deaf Smith married Guadalupe Ruiz Durán, a Mexican citizen who was descended from one of the original Tejano or Spanish Texas families; and as such, received a land grant from the Mexican government on the Cibolo River, north of present-day La Vernia in 1825. This area remained primarily unsettled by Europeans until 1837, when veterans from the recent wars of Independence from Mexico began to arrive.
