Melbourne Tenants & Fireworks: Safety and Regulations

Melbourne Couple Holding Sparklers TogetherOur memories often involve lighting sparklers and setting off colorful fireworks when we reminisce about the hot summer nights of our youth. Many people consider fireworks a big part of summertime fun, but for owners of single-family rental homes in Melbourne, there are a lot of dangerous risks to consider. Should you take all necessary precautions and even though they are just small fireworks, things can quickly go astray. There is a threat of real danger when it comes to personal injury and property damage should you mix fire and explosives.

As claimed by the National Fire Prevention Association, fireworks caused 11,000 injuries and 4 deaths in 2016. On top of personal injury, the NFPA states that fireworks start an average of 18,500 fires each year. 1,300 of those are structural fires and 300 are vehicle fires. It’s simple picturing how that can occur: you’re fortunate if you’ve never watched a firework accidentally landing beneath a parked car and known an instant of complete terror. Altogether, the NFPA considers that fireworks cause $43 million in property damage each year.

By being a property owner, it’s a good idea to be afraid of your Melbourne tenants lighting fireworks on or near your rental homes. Since it is understandable for us to know why they want to, the information and statistics alone are a persuasive rationale to communicate to your tenants about not deploying fireworks on your rental property. One strategy to get them to comply with your entreaty can be to offer them information on firework safety and the risks involved.

Then again if that does not look as if it is working, you need a property management company who understands the risks of fireworks and can help your tenants understand the danger involved. At Real Property Management Brevard, we have the best interests of your tenants and your rental property in mind. We can see to any doubts or queries your tenants may have about firework use and deal with any connected affairs that may enter into the picture. When it comes to the well-being and safety of your real estate investment and your tenants, you must have the kind of care and competence that we can provide.
