Protect Your Tenants…and Yourself – Loveland Property Management Tips

If you own a rental property, there are many rules and regulations out there that protect your renters, protect your investment in that property and also protect you as a landlord. Many landlords are not aware that in 2009, the State of Colorado passed a law about carbon monoxide detectors. And those laws are very specific about where those detectors have to be so you can’t just go in and slap one up on a blank wall.
This law applies to any sales, rentals and remodels of single family and multi-family dwellings. Any dwelling units that have a fuel fired heater or appliance, a fireplace or an attached garage are required to have a detector. An operational carbon monoxide alarm must be installed with fifteen feet of the entrance to each room lawfully used for sleeping purposes. For a very small price, you can provide peace of mind and protection to your tenants and protect your assets.
If you missed hearing about this law, it might be time for you to consider hiring a property manager to take care of your property. The cost is minimal and one of our jobs is to remain updated on new laws such as this and make certain our owners are compliant.
