Are you considering renting out your first property? If so, you are probably starting to…
Fall has arrived with crisp air and things that go bump in the night. Ferguson Property Management is here to help you avoid the truly spooky stuff, like renter and property issues. Nothing frightens us, from preparing for wear from stormy weather to the unexpected events the seasons can bring, we are ready.
Most landlords realize having a heat source available to their tenants is just good property management, but did you know if it takes longer than 30 days to get a repair service out to fix it they renter can take it out of the rent? Maintenance on the heater appliances at your property is key to avoiding this scary prospect and finding any issues before they arise during the busy period, where scheduling an affordable service might take longer.
Winter storms can also put a scary amount of leaves in home gutters causing rain water to collect on the roof and spring leaks. Having a roof service or rain gutter cleaning service is highly advisable to avoid these issues that can lead to frightening roof bills. Clogged gutters can allow the water into stucco and cause water damage on interior walls. Water pouring into your landscaping incorrectly can also pool at areas that can cause damage to the greenery and worst case to the home’s foundation.
