Common Property Issues

Although most buildings have some code violations and/or maintenance problems the great majority of problems are minor and require little in the way of correction. Below are a few of the most common problems during an inspection of the property.

Smoke Detectors
Missing, disabled or improperly installed smoke detectors are the number one problem noted on most compliance orders.

Furnaces and Flues
Openings in the furnace, chimney and venting which allow exhaust gases to escape into the household are very serious.

Water Heater
Common problems found with water heaters is an inadequate temperature and pressure relief valve and an improperly installed Tpr valve discharge pipe.

Exits and Egress
Every sleeping room must have two acceptable means of escape in case of fire, such as a door and a properly sized window.

Clogged Drains
Clogged drains are among the most frequent recurring nuisances that landlords have to deal with.

Install drain screens. Do not pour grease or other chemicals down the drains.

Electrical System
Though many potential electrical problems are hidden, the inspector looks for obvious conditions that can lead to electric shock or fire ignition.

Everyone forgets their keys and ends up lockout of their house now and then, but unlike homeowners, renters have landlords to call when they need someone to let them into their home.

With so many pests looking to get in it can be difficult to keep a rental property infestation free.
