Know What Items Are Prohibited From Your Porches, Yards, Balconies & Roofs

Like it or not, the City of Columbus residential zoning code prohibits certain items from certain places in and around your home. This includes the porches, decks, balconies, roofs & yards at your rental properties and the home you live in.

At no time are you or your tenants allowed to have any of the following items in any of the aforementioned areas:

>Upholstered furniture (including mattresses & similar) and other similar products not designed, built and manufactured for outdoor use

>Machinery 

>Household appliances

>Junk or salvage

>Construction equipment, lumber & building materials

>Cars, car parts & tires 

>Boats, RVs, Jet skis, airplanes.

Extreme Cold Can Cause Extreme Problems For Landlords!

As we've previously told you, extremely cold weather can be a very serious situation with regard to our health, our pets health, and our rental properties.

Not only do we want to stay inside and keep our pets inside (do not leave them in your car!), we want to be proactive in protecting our rental properties and primary residences from the extreme cold.

Weather like we are currently experiencing in Columbus can be especially dangerous when combined with a furnace issue. A simple expired pilot light can allow the house temperature to drop dramatically, and if it drops far enough there is a chance some.

Nearly All Leaves Have Fallen. Get Your Gutters Cleaned Now!

As we've previously stated, it's imperative to clean your gutters regularly, especially each Fall/Winter after the leaves have fallen & before major snowfall.

Clogged gutters can lead to a plethora of future problems that may be both hard to identify and hard to solve. Instead of playing the guessing game with leaks & major water intrusion or foundation problems, be proactive. Budget for two gutter cleanings per year & be sure to complete at least one each Fall.
