Being a landlord comes with many responsibilities. One of the most important responsibility is research. Do you know what the laws in your area require of you for the specific home you are renting out? Do you know all the details of being fire code approved? Failing to keep up with repairs and failing to educate yourself with the laws can come at a large cost. Some offences can be in the tens of thousands of dollars. That is a large amount of money for something that can be avoided if you do your research. If you are one of those who thinks, “Who will ever know?” think again. Any kind of accident or damage can lead to an inspection if professionals are involved. To learn more about avoiding landlord offences click here.
