If a tenant that EJF screened and placed under an executed lease agreement defaults on the initial term for their lease agreement, EJF will re-lease the property and waive the Leasing Fee, as long as the default was without Owner approval.
EJF is paid only when you are paid. If a tenant we place in your rental does not pay their rent as agreed in the lease, you don’t pay a management fee until they pay.
EJF Guarantees that any tenant secured by EJF will have insurance which protects the property. Included with ALL lease agreements under EJF is the Resident Benefits Package.
EJF charges a monthly Animal Administrative Fee to the tenant per each approved animal. EJF guarantees to cover the cost of any repair, above fair wear and tear, resulting from the approved animal(s) that is not covered by the tenant’s security deposit.
If you are not satisfied with our services, you may provide a 90-day notice and cancel your contract with no penalty.
Our goal is to provide the best experience for your rental property. We promise to offer you the best customer service available and will always ‘make it right’.

Zero-Tolerance Late Rental Payment Policy
EJF upholds a zero-tolerance policy on late rental payments and always stays in full compliance with the latest DC Landlord-Tenant laws.
- All rents in EJF-managed properties are due on the 1st of each month.
- On the 5th of each month, unpaid rents are considered late. A note is sent to the Tenant and late fees are applied to the Tenant account.
In the District of Columbia, evictions are not simple legal matters. Even with great management, the path to eviction in DC can take months, sometimes much longer, and cause the landlord significant stress and financial loss. For this reason, we always encourage our landlords to begin eviction proceedings at the first legal opportunity. Delay is not beneficial.
- Upon Landlord notification and approval, eviction proceedings begin on the earliest date of non-payment.
- For non-paying Tenants with a positive payment history, an eviction notice is typically filed on the 15th of month.
- For non-paying Tenants with a negative payment history, an eviction notice is typically filed on the 5th of the month.
