Prepare Your Tenants for Natural Disasters

As a rental property owner or manager it is likely that your property is in some danger of falling prey to a natural disaster. Even if you think that it is unlikely your rental property would be destroyed by a natural disaster it is important to be prepared so that if a disaster does strike you do not lose everything. In addition, as a landlord or property manager it is important that your tenants understand their roles in protecting their private property and staying safe.

As a landlord or property manager you can develop a flier that reminds your tenants to prepare, protect and plan for a natural disaster. As part of this flier you can include information from government websites that lists different recommendation for how they should prepare based on the natural disaster that is most likely to occur in their area. In addition, the flier can also include information about what to do if there is a gas or water leak or if there is electrical damage due to a natural disaster. Information about shutting of circuit breakers or water pipes in a rental apartment during or after a storm could help save tenant’s lives as well as your property. In addition, the flier can remind tenants the importance of owning renters insurance and that as a landlord you are not responsible damage to the tenant’s items.
