Useful Life and Property Damage: What Every Phoenix Landlord Needs to Know



It’s a common scenario in your Phoenix rental property: a resident has moved out of a rental home, leaving the property a mess or damaged. On top of the necessary cleaning the house badly needs, you discover that interior elements like the carpets and walls have sustained damage beyond normal wear and tear. Frustrated, you may console yourself with the thought that your resident is responsible for the cost of the repairs.

Or are they?
Depending on how long ago you installed the carpet or painted the walls, they may not be responsible to pay for or replace anything.
Who is responsible to pay for repairing damaged interiors depends almost entirely upon the “useful life” of the damaged item. Home interiors are made up of many elements that have a range of life expediencies. Paint, carpet, and other flooring wear out over time, and so their useful life can be quite short. This is particularly true for rental homes, as the standard number of years is shortened when the home is lived in by multiple occupants not just one family.
Most carpets used in rental homes have a useful life of about five years. If your resident manages to damage the carpet within the first five years after the date of installation, they may be responsible for the pro-rated share of the cost of replacement, or for cleaning costs if the carpet is simply very dirty.
But if the carpet is older than five years and needs to be replaced, chances are that no matter how negligent your resident has been, the courts will almost always rule in their favor. Generally speaking, if the damaged carpet is over five years old, you probably won’t be able to make a convincing case that your resident is responsible for the repairs. If that is true, then you will bear the full cost of repairs yourself.
The best course of action is to replace the carpet in your rental home on a regular basis. It’s also important to do regular property evaluations to monitor the condition of the property, including the carpets and other interior features. At Real Property Management Phoenix (WV), we take a proactive approach to property maintenance and repair. That means that we will work with you and your resident to keep a close eye on the property, complete necessary maintenance when needed, and inform you to replace worn items when their useful life is over.

Unauthorized Occupants & Pets

As the owner of single-family rental home in the Phoenix area, you will often find it difficult to gauge how well your residents are upholding each of the terms of their lease. You may have even carefully spelled out the terms in clear language in the lease but several aspects of lease enforcement can be more trouble than others. One of these is the issue of occupancy and pets. Upon, application for the home and lease signing, you probably asked your tenant to provide information about everyone who would be occupying the home, including minors and pets being brought into the home. By clarifying who will live in the home, you’ve taken steps to protect yourself and your investment.
Often times after your tenant moves in, however, you may find it can be difficult to determine whether the occupancy terms are being followed or you find an unauthorized pet.  Occupants of single-family rental homes often invite overnight guests or others to the home and they may bring a pet along with them. But problems can arise when those guests stay for an extended period, or when someone visits with such frequency (such as a babysitter or older adult children) that they appear to be living within the home well as well as their pet. In other cases, residents may be subletting rooms in the property without permission from the landlord.
While accusing your residents of violating lease terms may cause some friction at that moment often times the situation can quickly remedied by the new occupant completing an application so that a proper determination can be made about their occupancy or getting a completed pet addendum and deposit on file. If you suspect an occupancy or pet violation, gather as much information as you can and then take appropriate action with your tenant. If unauthorized people or pets are living in the home, this can put you at risk of increased liability for damages as you have no record of the unauthorized occupants past housing history and / or you may not have a signed pet addendum or deposit on file for damages caused by the unauthorized pet. Allowing unauthorized pets to remain on the property carries risks of increased wear and tear, as well as damage to the property.  
Hiring a reputable property management company such as RPM West Valley Phoenix to help solve this problem. As an experienced property manager RPM WV Phx can help you avoid the murky terrain of occupancy and pet violations in several ways. First, we will include appropriate language in the lease itself for both occupancy and pets. RPM WV Phoenix will properly screen potential renters, checking carefully for red flags and past violations. RPM WV Phoenix will perform property evaluations, gathering information that can identify any contract violations. Finally, we will help you resolve the issue in the event of a violation, giving you peace of mind about your valuable real estate investment.
