BE PREPARED for Weather Emergencies. VFMR
What you need to know as a Tenant.
The following information is designed to save you time, money and help keep you safe!
Hurricanes & Tropical Storms
Do NOT delay. If your home is on fire, do you wait for someone to tell you to "Get Out!"? Why, certainly no.
WHAT TO DO BEFORE-DURING-AFTER THE STORM
> Watch Weather forecasts.
> Have a "Family Plan" including a "Rally Point"
> Prepare for the worst while expecting less...
* You are responsible for: Your personal safety and that of your family's; your personal property; and, to safe guard the rented house from undue damage.
+ If the roof is leaking, cover the floor and/or use collection buckets until repair help can arrive.
+ Keep house guttering clean and unclogged.
+ Close ALL storm window and storm door glass sliders to keep excessive rain water out of the window and door casing.
+ If your power goes "OFF", do not let refrigerated food spoil inside the refrigerator or freezer... Cook it and enjoy it before it spoils. If food spoils, bag it and remove it from the house or apartment.
+ No power means No lights. BE CAREFUL with candles... Do NOT allow young children to be responsible for burning candles or other forms of fire.
+ Do NOT cook indoors with propane grills or cooktops when power is off... Flames create carbon monoxide -and- The risk of accidental fire becomes true.
+ YOU are responsible for your personal property... Appliances, Flat Screens, Computers, clothing, furniture, etc... This all adds up to a LOT OF MONEY... YOUR MONEY! Neither the Landlord, nor this Agent/Manager have any insurance coverage protecting you against the loss of your personal property. UNDER THE LEASE TERMS, which we all signed, YOU are to have RENTER'S INSURANCE protecting your Property as well as your liability if you make a costly mistake damaging the rented home. CALL YOUR INSURANCE AGENT EVERY SIX (6) MONTHS and be sure your coverage is up-to-date and enforce.
IMPORTANT... As stated above, take care of your family and yourself.. take care of your personal property.. You are required to own insurance, but you do not want to go through the hassle of a Claim, Right? ALSO REMEMBER... YOU are responsible for Consequential Damages to the rental home/apartment IF you do not take appropriate actions when something goes wrong. You CANNOT THINK, "It's not mine, so why should I do anything?" That would be a very costly attitude. Remember, BE PREPARED!

[NOTE: If you do NOT own Renter's Insurance, you will not need to take any pictures or document any damage to your personal property as there will be NO coverage for your loss.] Check with your Insurance Agent who carries your car insurance... Coverage for personal or real property is USUALLY NOT BOUND UNTIL THE 30TH DAY AFTER YOU HAVE PURCHASED THE COVERAGE. The latter is a general rule, so just be sure to check with your Insurance Agent or shop Insurance locally or online.
