Your rental management company has found you a new tenant and it’s time for them to move in. However, before the tenants arrive, you will need to ensure that the property is ready for the new occupants. Here are some tips from experts at our property management company to help prepare your apartment rental property in for a new tenant.
1. Do a walk-through
Before your new tenants move in, do a thorough inspection of the property and make a list of everything that needs to be replaced, repaired or cleaned. If you have hired one of the apartment management companies, they will take care of this.
2. Repair any major damage, health issues
Check if there are any broken window locks or holes in the wall. Look for any signs of mold or pests. Find out if the carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are functioning or not. These issues should be dealt on a priority basis.
