By RPM Central Valley

Are you concerned about a burglary at your Stockton Rental Property? You’re not alone. Burglary is 100% preventable and you can take simple steps to prevent it by following these tips.

Tip #1 – Don’t Use Cheap Locks

The first thing you should do to prevent your Stockton Rental Property from getting broken into is using cheap locks because just about every burglar knows how to get past a cheap lock and they will bypass your rental if they see that you have a difficult lock to break into.

To make sure you’re using the best lock possible you should purchase a Grade 1 lock on your rental property because they meet commercial building requirements and can also be used for residential purposes.

Tip #2 – Make Sure Your Tenants Are Not Hiding Keys

Although they are renting your Stockton Rental Property, your tenants may think of the rental property as their own and also make the mistake of leaving a key under the mat or above the door when these are often some of the first places thieves will look for keys when they want to break into a rental property.

Speak with each tenant at your rental property about keeping their keys with them at all times and also about not making other common mistakes like not maintaining the property, flaunting their valuables, or keeping their mailbox full when they are away on vacation because these are also common calling cards that thieves look for when casing homes.

Tip #3 – Follow Security Best Practices At Your Stockton Rental Property

Last of all, but most important you should also speak with your tenants about following security best practices like locking all doors and windows when they are away and making it look like they are still home at your Stockton Rental Property, even when they go on vacation.
