Vacation Security for your Apartment

Vacation Security for your Apartment

One of the reasons you might have chosen to rent your place rather than buy, particularly if it’s an apartment or condo, is for the freedom it can afford you to just lock up and head off on vacation without having to worry. There are a few things you should do before you go though, because while your renters’ insurance may be able to help you recover from a loss, the last thing you want is a disaster call in the middle of your holiday.

Cancel any regular deliveries – newspapers, milk, etc.

Have your mail redirected.

Leave contact details with the super in your building in case anything goes wrong.

Leave a spare key to your apartment with a trusted friend or family member.

Empty your fridge of anything that won’t last and clear your trash.

Turn off and unplug electronic gear and any small appliances in the apartment. 

Make sure any valuables are locked away out of sight, and check all the window and door locks as you leave.

When you’re going to be away for a long time, it might be worth considering a sublet – that way you won’t be out of pocket through paying rent on an empty apartment. California is a great holiday destination year round, so you might be able to capitalize on holidaymakers looking for alternative accommodation to hotels. However, make sure you check that you can sublet and that your valuables are well secured.
