Our Property Management Services
Block & Associates is committed to providing the highest quality of service to each of our customers while meeting the unique needs of both the landlords and tenants. Our property management experts will handle all the day to day tasks associated with your rental property, with a vast array of services that include:
Rental Agreements and Compliance
Our standard lease agreement directs the tenant to remain in compliance with the rules and regulations set forth by your HOA in order to reduce or eliminate fines or penalties. We handle all communications between the tenant and landlord and work directly with your HOA to ensure your property is in line with the neighborhood standards. Upon termination of the lease, our agent will perform a comprehensive walkthrough with the tenant to assess any damages and notify the tenant in writing of any necessary deductions while refunding the remaining balance owing on the security deposit.
Monthly rents are collected and the net amount is forwarded to the landlord in a timely manner via the postal service or electronic transfer. Every effort is made to minimize late payments or special requests from tenants, and in the event that an eviction is warranted, we have negotiated a secure, competitive rate with a trusted local real estate attorney who only represents landlords.
Detailed accounts help you to prepare for tax season and to plan your annual budget. Monthly statements are issued to all owners showing any deductions made for paid invoices along with copies for your records. Certain expenses may be paid by Block & Associates on behalf of the owner, such as warranty renewals or repairs, at no extra cost. Tenants are invoiced monthly for any outstanding charges that may be owing, including late rents, fees, or other items.
All requests for maintenance are handled in a timely manner, and we are available around the clock to mitigate damages and facilitate emergency repairs when needed. Prior to dispatching repair personnel, we will attempt to troubleshoot the issue with the tenant to find a viable solution or draw upon our network of preferred vendors with whom we have negotiated a competitive rate. We make no profit from any vendor charges and handle all communications to ensure positive outcomes.
Our rates are highly competitive and are based on a percentage of the monthly rents, with a minimum fee of $80 per month. Additional costs may include:
- Vacant Management – Vacant property management fees are a flat rate of $80 per month and include a monthly inspection. Utilities are transferred by us into our name, and utilities and any maintenance costs are paid for from your maintenance fund.
- Lease Renewal – Renewals are handled by the rental agent and are a flat rate of $150, which includes an interim inspection.

Located in southwestern Wake County, Apex combines a relaxing small-town atmosphere with convenience to big-city amenities. It is positioned for future growth and the town planners are working to ensure that the small-town character remains while allowing for many new residents to join our community.
In 2007, Apex was named the 14th Best Place to Live in the USA by Money Magazine. In 1994 Apex was named the state’s #1 Small Town in economic vitality by Business North Carolina magazine.
A major streetscape renovation project has restored Apex’s downtown and recaptured its historic flavor. The revitalized downtown is on the National Register of Historic Places as one of the best examples of an intact turn-of-the-century railroad town.
We invite you to join the hundreds of newcomers discovering our delightful small town ideally located in southwestern Wake County. Even though new residents relocate to Apex daily, we have maintained the small town character which is so unique in the rapidly-growing Research Triangle Area.
The Apex downtown reflects the town’s rich historical beginning. Apex was first settled around 1867 and was incorporated in 1873. The name “Apex” was adopted because the community was the highest point on the Chatham Railroad between Richmond, Virginia and Jacksonville, Florida.
The Apex railroad station was first chartered in 1854 “for the purpose of affecting a communication between the North Carolina Railroad Company (at Raleigh) and the coal fields of Chatham County.” Because of the war and problems with Reconstruction, the first locomotive did not pass through Apex until 1869. Since the Apex station was located in the heart of a vast pine forest, it became a shipping point for forest products such as tar, turpentine and lumber.
A community soon developed around the station. Stores and warehouses were built and many of the large forests in the area were converted to farmlands. Before long, Apex became an active trading and shopping center. When the disease known as the Granville Wilt ran many tobacco farmers out of Person and Granville counties at the turn of the century, these farmers found land around Apex to be equally suitable for tobacco production and settled here. The first Wake County tobacco auction market was established in Apex in 1905.
The Apex town motto, “Peak of Good Living” is appropriate for a number of historical reasons. Not only was the town named for being the highest point on the Chatham Railroad, but in places along the main street of Apex, water which falls on one side of the street flows to the Neuse River, and on the other side flows to the Cape Fear River.
