Will there be a repair issue after a new tenant moves in?

Category: Repairs and Maintenance

Probably. If you have recently purchased the property, or if a tenant was recently evicted, brace yourself mentally for a repair list. This is normal and to be expected. If we have already been managing the rental, there may be fewer repairs needed after a new tenant is placed. However, we are not Home Inspectors and some tenants may not report every issue, so there could be something missed. A new tenant will often discover something wrong after living there a few days. It is usually nothing major but it happens. If there are no repair requests within a month after a new tenant moves in, consider yourself lucky! (ha)
