There are a number of ways that children can injure themselves and even die in their own home.
Providing a rental property that is relatively free from hazards to children, can increase your pool of prospective tenants, as it attracts families with young children.
It can also help reduce your liability in the case that
tenants or guests injure themselves at the property.
Landlords can help overcome these risks and childproof their
Here are some suggestions from RealRenta:
· If your investment property has a balcony,
ensure that the balustrade runs vertically so that cannot be climbed and
positioned so that children can’t slip through.
· All windows should be fitted with heavy duty fly-screens
that can resist the weight of a child.
· Landlords should also be open to tenants
installing their own childproof gates at the tops of stairs
· All swimming pools should be fenced off and
fitted with child proof locking mechanisms
· Landlords should seriously consider gated fences
to separate gardens and play areas from driveways and garages.
· Make sure that all curtain, pulleys and blind
cords comply with ACCC mandatory requirements, to avoid strangulation
· Consider mounting televisions to walls and
fixing bookshelves and drawers to walls
RealRenta tenants can submit all maintenance requests, documents and photos via the RealRenta platform, for accuracy and ease of communication with their landlord.
