Now that I'm a landlord all over again, there are certain things I have to do:
1. Convert my insurance policy from a home owner's to a landlord's - will save me $400 per year. NC has a wind policy component due to hurricane's that's pretty expensive and doesn't seem to diminish for a land lord's policy. Consider competitively shopping the insurance.
2. Make sure tenant converts utilities to his name - will save about $120 per month.
3. Make sure tenant contancts lawn mowing service and uses them or does hisself - will save $80 - $120 per month.
4. Ensure management company can send me payments via EFT.
Anything else anyone can recommend or suggest?
