Setting up your Investment Property for renting is a pivotal part of minimising the stress through your investment lifetime. Lawns and garden maintenance is something you often need to consider with freestanding houses, and some townhouses – as well as tree trimming which may be required from time to time. Our modern day lives have grown fast paced, and often the lives of our Tenants are similarly busy. As a result, many people simply do not have as much free time to do these kinds of everyday tasks – or sometimes avoid them all together.
It is important to state the differences with lawns and gardens, as opposed to tree trimming. Generally speaking, if it is within reach for the Tenants to trim without the assistance of a ladder, then it is something your Tenant can and should be doing. If it is beyond this reach, it would then fall to you as the owner to have it attended to when required. Thankfully tree trimming is usually a job that only needs doing occasionally!
Having an Investment Property with large lawn or garden areas, or sometimes both – can lead to these areas being neglected; sometimes even with otherwise good Tenants. How do we minimise the risk of problems occurring, and in turn remove the distraction and potential expense from your life?
There are a number of options you can consider, depending on the circumstances:
