Is your rental property safe and secure?
It is very important that your rental property is safe and secure. So, what’s safe and secure? Is your property able to be locked securely at all access points ie; windows and doors. Additionally, is the property safe? Although Landlords in New Zealand do not legally have to install or service smoke alarms, it is highly recommended you to get your property manager to arrange. Alternatively fire blankets and extinguisher.
If your section is fenced it adds a security feature to the property. This can be an advantage to most tenants, especially those with children and pets.
Additional security items to a property of course include security alarms.
