Improved Rental Health

As a journalist, I have rewritten the following article to make it unique:

In many states, rental property owners are required by law to provide basic maintenance services on heating and plumbing systems, ensure clean running water, and maintain a safe structure. However, neglecting any of these areas can result in legal liability for owners and landlords, challenges for property managers, and serious health problems for tenants. The concept of “habitability” may seem like common sense, but it’s crucial to understand its importance.

During a recent webinar hosted by Rental Beast, real estate lawyer Monica Gilroy emphasized the importance of reducing risks associated with lead-based paint and mold. If implemented, the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed rule could require property managers to become certified before dealing with repair, renovation or remediation involving lead-based paint. Property managers should be proactive in addressing any potential risks associated with lead-based paint or mold. They should appoint one person within their firm to become certified and develop written procedures in response to any reports of mold. It’s important for property managers to take this issue seriously and act promptly when faced with tenant complaints about mold or other hazards.
