Check all the heating supplies and make sure they are fitted properly. Over time, boilers can wear down and become non-functioning. The last thing you want to do is to leave your tenants without heating for days on end while you find a repair team. By regularly checking the heating appliances within your properties, you can replace the boiler before it fully breaks.
Make sure that the water runs clear and that no contaminants are coming through the tap. You need to make sure that there are no drips from the sink, and that all loose pipes are connected properly. A leak is easily fixed, however if it is left then you could suffer the consequences of water damage.
Checking out the septic system is always a good move. Make sure you note the last time it was pumped, and look out for leakage around the surface.
Examine the circuit breaker panel and make sure that the fuse box is fully connected. Take note of any loose or fraying wires around this area and the danger it imposes.
Checking the structure of your property is vital if you want to rent it out for years to come. This includes checking the walls for cracks and splits. You should also check the roof and floor for borer damage and insect contamination before this becomes more of an apparent issue.
