Owning rental property can be a great investment, but the key to success is to maintain high occupancy rates. You want to attract and keep the right kind of tenants; those who will be good stewards of your property.
Unfortunately, a single bad renter can create a huge headache. Tenants who don’t clean up after themselves don’t just create more work for you; they also cost you money. Every day you have to spend clearing out and deep cleaning is a day you can’t bring in a new renter.
Even good renters who do make an honest effort to take care of their home can leave a bit of a mess on the way out the door. For instance, you’ll likely need to replace carpet much more often in a rental property due to normal wear and tear, in addition to instances of tenant disregard.
Rental Cleanouts: What’s Normal and What’s Not
When a tenant leaves your property, some cleaning and repairs will be necessary. While most tenants will work hard to get their security deposit back, there will always be things that fall through the cracks. Mini-blinds may need to be replaced and appliances for which you are responsible may have seen better days, among other repairs that tenants may not be able to manage. These things are par for the course as a landlord.
What’s not normal, but not uncommon, is to find a completely destroyed property: Torn carpeting, perishable food left behind, garbage and broken furniture cluttering the space. Fortunately, you will have the ability to keep these tenants’ security deposits to offset the costs of restoring the property to good condition.
In either situation, you will inevitably discover the need for professional hauling services at some point between one tenant vacating and the next taking possession of the property. Unless you have a truck and plenty of time on your hands, its simply not feasible to manage all this on your own. Due to local, state, and federal regulations regarding what can and cannot be thrown away, you may find yourself making dozens of trips to separate facilities just to complete a single property cleanout.
