Landlord Tasks

We spent last week in South Carolina handling “landlord duties”.

Our previous trip down was in May, so the condo needed some love and attention!

My rental property owner check list-

  1. Find everything and return to its proper location. This is especially true in the kitchen. Occasionally, I agree with the tenants’ storage solutions and change my organizational plan accordingly.
  2. Sand removal- from dresser drawers, under chair cushions, and even in the freezer.
  3. Dust removal- from ceiling fans, the top of appliances, under beds, return vents, etc.
  4. Laundry- wash all bedding, mattress pads, throw rugs, blankets, and bath mats.
  5. Inventory- we provide sheets and towels, so we have to check on the condition of those items.
  6. Replace- swap out shower curtain liners and add new dishtowels, bath towels, as needed.
  7. Unclutter- thing accumulate from a summer of visitors. Sometimes it’s the bonus of newer “beach books”, but often, it’s items that need to be tossed.
  8. Clean, clean clean- that includes all dishes, pots and pans, glassware, and silverware. I don’t want incoming tenants to find crusty food left behind. This also allows me to check for broken and rusty items that need to be replaced.
  9. Repairs- there’s always something that needs attention.

After all of the hard work, there’s a real sense of satisfaction when finished. I know our incoming fall guests will (hopefully) be happy.
