CHECKLIST TO PREPARE YOUR RENTAL FOR FALL
As summer draws to a close, renters can take a few simple steps to prepare their homes for fall and keep emergencies at bay.

Transition to cooler weather months with ease thanks to a few simple preparation tips. This checklist takes preventative measures against water damage, mold, utility inefficiency and more.

Interior
• In preparation for chilly nights around the fireplace, be sure to test your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Be sure that there is a smoke alarm in any room with a fireplace and a carbon monoxide detector in the room near your furnace.
• If your basement feels damp, invest in a dehumidifier. Ridding the air of unwanted humidity can prevent mold and other moisture problems that can become costly if unchecked.

Exterior
• If you are responsible for landscaping on the rental property, it’s a good idea to aerate and fertilize the lawn in the late summer or early fall before frost sets in. The fertilizer will help to nourish your grass, keeping it hearty and strong for the cooler months. If you notice bald patches in the lawn, go ahead and place seeds down with the fertilizer.
• Bad news: cold weather does not kill weeds permanently (if at all). It’s a good idea to take advantage of the cooler weather to pull the weeds from your yard. This will prevent a larger and more daunting infestation next year.
