What are tenants responsible for?
While Nevada law states that major components of the home are to be maintained by the homeowner, we require tenants to maintain certain aspects of the home. For example, changing air conditioning filters, light bulbs and other minor maintenance items around the property are their responsibility per the lease. If an item fails due to tenant neglect, they are also responsible for that. Tenants are required to shampoo carpets annually and at move out. When a tenant vacates a property, items beyond normal wear and tear become their responsibility and charges assessed to their security deposit.
Do you require tenants to carry renters insurance?
Yes! At the time of lease signing, tenants must furnish proof of a renters insurance policy and list Nicklin Property Management as additional interest. Renters insurance offers tenants liability protection and covers personal belongings in the case of damage due to a major event at the property. They are required to maintain renters insurance coverage for the duration of the lease agreement.
