September is fastly approaching, which means autumn is almost here. This fall season protect your rental properties from theft and break-ins. There are several small steps you can take to ensure the safety and security of your property and your tenants. So, with that said, here are some helpful changes you can make to provide more security for your rental this fall season.

#1. Provide ample lighting with timers: It is a dead giveaway to burglars that you are not home if lights are off at dinner time. Make sure front doors and side doors are lighted well. Consider purchasing motion floodlights that immediately light up when movement occurs in their direction.

#2. Keep brushes and trees trimmed back: Let all front doors and windows be visible. Burglars can hide easily in a jungle of shrubbery.

#3. Consider installing an alarm system: This is something that can add a lot of value to your rental property. It will keep your property safe and tenants from any theft. You may be able to add a monthly fee.

#4. Install secure locks: It is best to use deadbolts on your exterior doors.

#5. Protect yourself and your investment: Make sure your liability insurance policy covers you from lawsuits stemming from crime and theft.
