When you purchase an investment property that you want to use as a rental, you understand that it will be someone else’s home, even if it’s just for a short time. During that time, you want the property to be the best it can be, but sometimes, it’s easy to overlook the more important factors in renting that are legally required by the state and national government. Making sure your rental property is compliant with these laws is crucial. When you work with an excellent property management group, you can rest easy knowing that they know the laws inside and out that dictate what makes a property livable or not. Consider these other areas where a property owner can easily trip up if they try and manage the property themselves.
Safe Gas Supply
Many different appliances can run on gas, from a stovetop to a dryer or water heater. Gas leaks can lead to a variety of problems, including risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. It’s critical to have gas lines checked for leaks on a regular basis. This is something that a property management company can regularly schedule, and they have the maintenance network to also get you the best prices.
Intact Standard Appliances
Different states have different requirements on what appliances must be provided in a rental property. Some states require access to laundry facilities, others consider them extraneous. However, there are standards for what appliances must be working in a rental property, such as a refrigerator and stovetop. Don’t worry about figuring this out for yourself; let your property management company keep your interests in mind as they make sure that your rental property meets all the required laws in your area.
