Keep our home safe is always a never-out-of-date thing! But how? especially in this holiday season. Let’s right into it.

Tip1. Make sure every doorway to the outside has a door in it.

Tip2. Get a home security system, or at least a sticker that says you have a home security system.

Tip3. Keep your house appearing lived-in while you’re away by asking neighbors to pick up your mail, bring in your trash cans, and stage screaming matches in your kitchen around dinner time.

Tip4. A video doorbell can help deter would-be assailants from using your front door.

Tip5. Before posting any photos while on vacation, block any friends who seem like they might rob you.

One issue that I’m sure other renters have to deal with (especially in the case of low-income or subsidized multifamily housing) is that landlords/property managers often make a point of writing into your lease certain clauses that prohibit you from affixing anything to any part of the exterior of your apartment rental, with consequences intentionally spelled out to include the termination of your lease and your eviction from your residence.
In my case, my property management company’s on-site community management know from experience that I am educated as to what the landlord-tenant laws are for my location, what rights I have that cannot be annulled despite their clever legal contrivances, and that I will stand up for and exercise those rights.

Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you want
