LANDLORD HURRICANE PREPARDNESS MESSAGE
Hurricane season is upon us lasting through October 31st. Now is the time to prepare.
We recommend to Owners the following:
- If you have a property on a treed lot, authorize us to have your trees evaluated for dead wood, roof overhang and general health. Often with high winds, under kept or unhealthy trees cause property damage. Do it now. Once the storm approaches the tree services will be busy for months to come.
- If you want to rest assured that your tenant has the ability to “board up” your windows, let us get a handyman to measure, cut and supply tenants with boarding and screws necessary to apply the protection. Do it now. Few tenants are going to buy the lumber necessary to protect the windows. When a storm is approaching it is too late. Supplies run out fast and handymen and repair people will already be engaged with prior clients or boarding up their own property. We won’t be able to get the job done.
- Are you comfortable with the condition of you current roof? If your roof is single and 12 years or older, you should have it inspected for remaining life and potential of leaking under long sustained rains.
PLEASE SEND US YOUR CURRENT INSURANCE DECLARATION PAGE by MAIL, EMAIL OR FAX.
Hurricane Irma caused damage to approximately 70 of the properties we manage. The majority of the damage was caused by trees or faulty roofs.
Please help us to help you safeguard your property.
We have sent a detailed message to all tenants, outlining our expectations of them for keeping your property and their property safe.
