Secured Home – The Lee of the Wise-Man



No matter if you are a renter or a home owner, you’ll always want to feel secure in your home. Not only this, but you’ll also want all of your personal belongings to be as safe as possible. There are many different scenarios in which you may get hurt or some of your stuff may get stolen, damaged or completely destroyed. It is wise to be prepared and do everything you can to try to prevent things like this from happening. Even though it is hard to predict everything that can happen, there are several situations you should always be prepared for. That is why you should do all of the following things.

Securing your home from burglars

Burglary was always one of the most common crimes. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, somewhere in U.S. a burglary is committed every 15 seconds. Even though it may seem that burglaries are random in occurrence that is not the case. Criminals choose only the homes with the easiest access. That is why you’ll want to secure your home and keep burglars away from it. First of all, you’ll want to put shades or drapes in order to prevent burglars from inspecting your home. Installing alarm system apps and motion sensors is also something that will keep the burglars away. Even if they do try to break in, the alarm will make them abort their mission. It is also important to use common sense in the fight against burglars. Never leave your door unlocked or windows open when you are not at home.

Protect it from water damage

Just think about for how many hours your home stays empty every day. Plumbing can start leaking and your home can be flooding in no time. This means that all of your personal belongings will get soaked and possibly ruined. Not to mention how much money it takes to fix everything and replace all of the ruined items. In order to prevent this from happening, you’ll want to check all of the hoses and faucets on a regular basis. Another thing you can do is to install floor pans under all of your appliances. This won’t save you from catastrophic leaks but will do the job against small ones. You can also consider installing water alarms which will make a signal in the case of leak. You should install the sensors in bathroom, kitchen, laundry room and basement.

Protect your home from fire

Annually, 3000 people die and another 15000 gets injured in residential fires. The real tragedy is that most of these could have been avoided simply by taking several precautions. The most important thing to do is install a fire alarm. Today, fire alarm is an obligatory part of every household. Installing fire extinguishers is also a good idea, but these may not always prove to be enough to put out a fire. That is why fire fighting trailers may be a better option. Having one of these will help you put out the fire before it starts spreading even more. Also, you should ensure that your water cartage tank is always full. Common sense again plays an important role in keeping your home safe. Always remember to turn off oven and other similar appliances when you are going somewhere. Checking if you did, every time you get out is also a great idea.

Staying careful and always paying attention to any potential hazards are keys to having a safe home. Just remember to stay put and always try to come up with new ways to increase safety in your home.

4 Important Things a Landlord Would Always Want To Know Before Choosing a Tenant


, ,

Know what’s expected of you and your landlord in order to get the best out of you being a tenant. In the world of renting the relationship between the tenant and the landlord is considered to be the trickiest one. But the reality here is that landlords generally want things that would be the best for their investment property, and which would again mean that they want you, their beloved tenant and know that there a few things important before you spend the rest of your life under their roof.flats sale deals in sarjapur road bangalore

Everyone would win when you read your lease: This sounds so simple and basic, but would never believe how many people have actually read the lease. When you first have a glance it’s the never ending list of paragraphs which is again jumbled, especially if your home or apartment is managed by a property manager or some large company. And within all these pages the tenants would only learn what you are expecting from them but would also know what he has been expecting from them. Knowing your rights, rules and regulation would help you avoid the issues before they actually turn out to be a problem for you.

Landlords would never want you to be charged with the late fees or returned check fees: Think that the landlords would love to receive all those late fees from you along with the other charges. No they don’t. All they want is that you are not late each month and bounce checks so that they could charge you with some extra fees. So no matter how much they would be receiving because of the inability of managing your finances, it’s never worth the hassle of chasing you down with the overdue rents and the bounced rates. The bottom line here is that they would charge you if you do not pay the due rent and fees making them evict you at some point of time.

Pet Stains would cost you much more than what you generally think: We do love our cats or dogs and thankfully we do have apartments who love them to. And the big shock comes when the tenant moves out and is hit with one big repair bill. And the only reason behind this would be the big stains on the carpet and wall to wall which would actually seem to be pretty small to you. Pet urine is something that generally seeps deep into carpeting and padding below. Your landlord would never be able to rent his apartment or house again unless and until he would get them repaired and unfortunately most of the time these things would have to be replaced. So whether you have a carpet or hardwood you deposit would turn out to be a sweet memory if your little Fido has too many accidents done.

Your deposit is not the last month’s rent: Many tenants generally assume that their deposit could be used as the last month’s rent. It’s a security damage deposit something that is completely separate. So refusing to pay your last month’s rent by offering your deposit could actually cost you far more than that of the rent payment. You could be slapped with a notice of eviction and the late rent charges. This would potentially again dig your credit, destroying the ability to use the reference of your new apartment and open you up with a legal action.

These were just a few and there are a lot more things to go. So what would you like to add to the list above, do leave your comments below.
