Burglary prevention might not have been high on your priority list when investing in rental properties, but it’s essential to do your due diligence and put safeguards in place. Responsibility for tenant safety falls to the landlord to some degree, so make sure your rental property is as safe as possible for your renters.
Burglary risk at your rental property is the same as in your primary home. And so, you must employ the same measure as you’d have applied in your own home. Installing a security system, changing locks frequently, having good terms with your neighbors, making the property entrances visible from other homes in the locality, are some of the good measures you can employ.
And as an added benefit, you may command a higher rental price. As buyers, these days, negotiate a lot more for the rent.
