Landlord Tips

If you have decided to rent your property, we congratulate you on becoming a landlord!  Now to get down to business, literally, because your rental property should now be treated as your business, after all, it will create income and have expenses. As a business owner, conduct it as such by complying with all federal, state, and local laws, and be sure to follow all real estate and rental regulations. 

Here are a few important items:

Protect yourself against accidents or liability claims and purchase landlord insurance to cover water damages, theft, fire, etc. 

Inspect your property to ensure your building is up-to-code: i.e., smoke & carbon monoxide detectors, furnace, paint, gas lines, etc.

Gather a list of companies that can be available to you 24-hours a day for those unexpected emergencies i.e., plumber, electrician, appliance repair, etc.
