If you are renting a house, townhouse or condominium, there are certain activities tenants should perform in the spring.
Now that the weather is warmer, get outside and take an assessment of yard conditions. Tenants should cut back dead branches on bushes, remove twigs, broken limbs and leaves, and deadhead spring flowers. Clean the gutters if they need it. (Your lease will define your responsibilities.)
Mowing should take place about once a week, so the lawn does not become overgrown following spring rains. If the summer months are dry, mow as necessary. Do not mow on the lowest-to-the-ground setting as this can kill the grass and allow weeds to take root. If the lawn is in poor condition, let us know. We may need to have the lawn treated, aerated and seeded.
Bring in the sunlight by washing the windows and sweep sidewalks and porches. Turn on the main valve to your outside water supply and re-hook up hoses to wash away any mud or debris. Take pride in your home and enjoy how nice it looks!
Walk the grounds as well and perform a visual inspection. Are gutters hanging or pulled away from the roof due to ice and snow? Are roof shingles missing? Did the fence get broken or the siding damaged? Check the exterior of your home as well as the entire grounds for problems. If there is an issue, please contact your property manager as soon as you identify it. We will want to take care of it as quickly as possible.
We enjoy our tenants and want them to enjoy living in the homes we represent. If you are interested in renting from Propman, see our Available Rentals. Or, if you have a home you’d like to rent out, please give us a call.
