Residential Property Management: Winter Property Tips For Waterloo Landlords

Winter can be a magical time of year for most children. However, for adults, winters in Canada tend to be a more troublesome time of year for many reasons. It is cold, there’s lots of snow, and everything seems to work and move slower. It’s even more difficult for landlords, who typically have more to worry about on their properties in winter than any other season. If you’re a landlord and happen to be situated in or around Waterloo, maybe it’s time to take it easy; consider letting a professional residential property management company like Latitude Properties Limited worry instead.

Traditional Maintenance Tips For Landlords During Winter

Landlords typically have numerous duties to attend to before winter sets in. Among these duties, several maintenance tips are crucial:

  • Service furnace/boilers on your property
  • Inspect the seals on doors and windows
  • Inspect your property for openings and cracks
  • Inspect the insulation
  • Come up with a snow removal plan
  • Change batteries in digital thermostats
  • Check the trees surrounding your property for rot or hazardous branches
  • Clean the gutters
  • Remind tenants to keep the heat on even if they’re departing for a period of time in order to avoid pipes freezing

Performing all of these should not be considered occasional activities, but rather a landlord’s due diligence. These preventatives can not only keep your property running smoothly in the winter, but will likely also keep your tenants happy.
