Are you planning on buying a new rental property in the Houston area?
Like many landlords, you’re excited about getting that property ready for rent but the reality is that there are a variety of things that you must replace in your property before renting it including the following:
Although some landlords often replace the toilets in a rental property last, you should replace these first because a leaky toilet can cause thousands of dollars in water damages and higher than normal water bills for your tenant or you, if you’re paying the water bill for the property yourself.
Changing light bulbs is also a “must do” because this will eliminate your tenants calling you to come out to change the light bulbs and also ensure that they will not injure themselves when attempting to change the light bulbs in the rental property on their own.
Even though the locks in your new Houston TX rental property may look new, you should still replace them anyway because there’s no knowing who may have had access to that property in the past and you want to move forward with confidence in knowing that all keys are accounted for.
Fire Extinguishers and Smoke Alarms
Last of all, don’t forget to change the fire extinguishers and smoke alarms for the rental property especially since there’s no knowing how old those safety devices really are and you want to move forward as an owner with confidence in knowing that your tenants will be protected from fire should one break out at your property.
