How can you make your place safe for tenants?
Always be mindful of your tenants’ privacy. Fully disclose whether there are security cameras or other surveillance equipment at or around your listing.
Remind tenants about keeping noise down.You may want to consider whether you allow babies, pets, or kids. Develop a policy about tenants inviting other people over, and ensure your tenants are clear about your ‘party policy.’
Local Hospitals or doctors
First aid kit
Carbon monoxide detector
Ensure your home is properly ventilated and that temperature control is clearly marked and functional. Ensure tenants are clear about how to safely use the heater.
If you allow pets, ensure tenants are educated about things like local parks and local customs (e.g., cleaning up after your dog).
Clearly mark escape route on easily visible
point in home
How can I be mindful of my neighbours?
Consider whether you should notify your neighbours about your new tenants, along with your plan for how to make sure your tenants are not disruptive. Maybe introduce them to the neighbours.
If you don’t allow smoking, we suggest posting signs to remind tenants.
Ensure you relay parking rules for your building and neighbourhood to your tenant.
