The holiday season is approaching fast, and everyone’s schedules are busier than ever. Property managers play an essential role in ensuring the safety and security of their tenants during this festive time. Here are some top holiday tips for property managers to make this time of the year great for you and your tenants.
As a property manager, your primary responsibility is to ensure the safety and good condition of all properties under your care. This involves regular checks on heating, electricity, and the overall structural integrity of the building. It’s also important to pay attention to the outdoors, especially during winter when sprinklers or irrigation systems can freeze and cause pipes to burst. To prevent electrical short-circuits due to Christmas lighting, installing GFCI outlets that automatically break the circuit in case of power surges is recommended. Taking these measures lets you keep your tenants satisfied and your properties well-maintained.
Get Chores Done First
It’s best to address any maintenance issues before the holiday season is in full swing. This way, you and your tenants can enjoy the festive time without the added stress of dealing with maintenance issues such as leaking pipes or faulty heating.
Being prepared for unexpected malfunctions in your rental property is always important. Even though accidental fires happen more frequently during the Christmas season, several precautions can be taken to prevent them. However, it’s still possible that other emergencies could arise, and your tenants may require your assistance. To ensure that they can reach you in an emergency, provide them with an emergency contact number that they can use when you’re not available.
As a property manager, you play a significant role in setting the mood for the neighborhood and maintaining positive relationships with your tenants. A simple and thoughtful way to achieve this is by sending your tenants personalized Christmas or holiday cards. By doing so, you show appreciation for them choosing your commercial property.
