Should my rental property be tested for meth?
Landlords and property managers are required to rent out a clean and safe property to tenants, but what is a potential and concerning issue for property managers and landlords is the growing use of methamphetamine’s in rental properties.
The increase in drug-related incidences is a frightening epidemic moving through the nation with the real estate industry not exempt from its impact.
The reality is that property owners need to be aware of the potential use of drugs within their properties. What makes it so concerning is that the signs of drug use within a property are not obvious. In fact, meth residue is invisible and has absolutely no smell, but can have a devastating impact on those living within the property, and in particular, children.
For this reason, property managers should be aware of the availability of meth testing, and recognising when it should be a considered option for investment property owners.
