Rental Property Maintenance Tips for Landlords

Maintaining your rental property requires carefully balancing the cost of preventative maintenance with the income your property generates. A property management company can help you devise a plan that maximizes the earning potential of your properties while ensuring that your tenants’ maintenance needs are met. These tips will also help you create a maintenance strategy for your rentals.

Invest in Extermination

Don’t wait for a pest infestation to happen in your properties to call out an exterminator. Fighting an ongoing pest problem is much more difficult than preventing them in the first place, and your tenants will be much more satisfied with a pest-free property. Ideally, you should schedule monthly extermination for your rental properties to prevent pests from taking over. Although monthly extermination is an investment, it can save you a significant amount of money in the long run. Your property manager can oversee the extermination process on your behalf.

Focus on Air Filters

Replacing HVAC systems is extremely costly, so making the units in your rentals last as long as possible makes sense. One of the easiest ways to extend the life of your HVAC systems is to make sure that the filters are changed regularly. You may opt to require your tenants to change the filters at specific times, or you may have your property manager enter the units to change filters periodically.

Act Quickly When Leaks Occur

A small leak can lead to major water damage quickly, so when a tenant reports a problem, make repairs promptly. Your property manager may advise you to put a clause in your lease that requires tenants to report leaks when they occur. Your property management company may also check for leaks when they have to enter the property for other reasons.
