It may not be the responsibility of a Los Angeles Property Management company to prepare tenants for an emergency or disaster. But, the way a tenant responds could become an issue. When tenants panic or become angry when something bad happens, often a Los Angeles Property Management company would be the first to blame. Tenants are sometimes unrealistic and expect the impossible from a Los Angeles Property Management company.
Los Angeles Property Management Needs To Be Prepared
You can’t predict, avoid, or prevent any kind of emergency. But, there is a way to educate tenants and residents on how to avoid a home fire or you could even help them with a plan on what to do if a natural disaster comes out of nowhere. It will take some time and planning, but in doing this, it makes a difference in stressful times.
Los Angeles Property Management companies should often educate and train tenants on emergency/disaster in multiple ways.
- Rental agreement
- Company website (if available)
- Emergency/Disaster Handbook for residents
- Tenant newsletter
- Resident/Tenant Handbook
There’s plenty of information out that is available that you can pass on to all of your tenants. The more they know, the better it is for the tenant to prepare themselves to cope independently.
Important Information To Relay:
- Resident/Tenant Insurance
- What Residents Can Expect During An Emergency/Disaster
- Dealing With Interior And Exterior Fires
- Chemical Hazards
- Power Outages
- Emergency/Disaster Kits
- Creating An Emergency/disaster Plan
- After An Emergency/Disaster
Los Angeles Property Management companies say you could feel that with all this preparation, it may seem unnecessary but consider how busy some will get when an unexpected event occurs.
