If you are the owner of a rental property, you know the tremendous advantages of having good tenants. However, finding and keeping good tenants is not always easy. One of the best ways you can do it, though, is by keeping your property safe and secure. Safety involves preventing hazards to your health or life – security is similar, but it can also include preventing property damage, and is more specific to the threat of crime.
Armed with that knowledge, you might take a walk around your property to assess the potential threats to your tenant’s safety and security. Keep an eye out for electrical hazards, slip or trip hazards, exterior lighting, blocked entrances and exits, and broken or weak locks on doors and windows.
Hopefully, proactively caring for safety and security can not only give you peace of mind, but will make your tenants feel like you care about their well-being.
