Natural Disasters: What Radford Rental Property Owners Need to Know

Radford Rental Property Damaged by a Major FloodAll across the nation, natural disasters are known to strike with little to no warning. Hurricanes, tornados, wildfires, flash floods, and the like can create devastation to homes and families far and wide. For Radford rental property owners, realizing what must be accomplished – and who you can depend on – in the event that one of your homes is trashed by a storm, fire, or flood is a critical element in keeping your renters unharmed and able to regroup after a calamity.

It’s time to start planning for disaster recovery. Deferring the creation of a recovery plan until after a disaster has wreaked havoc on your rental home can badly impact the recovery process. Preparing ahead means doing what you can now to ease the harm that catastrophes bring. Paying for insurance coverage will set things moving and at the same time doing a detailed assessment of your real estate to determine the natural disaster threat level associated with each one. The condition of each rental property should also be painstakingly checked, including the solidity of retaining walls, the danger of tall trees, and other potential troubles.

If your rental premises is trashed in a natural disaster, the first thing you should do is check on your tenants and verify they are unhurt. The destruction of your property would need to be thoroughly documented and photographed. Once this is accomplished, contact the appropriate authorities and insurance companies. If the destruction is grave, your tenants may look into to obtaining alternative housing through their insurance carrier, and inspectors and contractors must be employed straight away to estimate the cost of and time need for repairs.
