Hello Newbie here I have a unit with a sump pump in the basement can only access it by going into the unit to get down there. My question is can I write in the lease for the tenant just to have it plugged up on rainy days so the basement won’t flood or is that something that I would have to deal with ? Also I’m in Delaware
I am confused. Our sump pump is always plugged-in.
Ours is always plugged in and I would recommend a backup in case the main one fails or power outage
Yes I keep it plugged in cause it’s vacant right now. But when a tenant moves in it’ll be running on their electricity is there away I can write that in their lease? cause basically they’ll be paying for the sump pump.
What am I missing.....it only runs when it Needs to run, right? Hint; an electric motor doesn't use any electricity when its not running.
makes sense I just know people always think something making the bill higher. But thanks I wasn’t thinking that way.
You could put it in your lease that if it is unplugged and there is flood damage, they will be responsible.
You are ultimately responsible for safety of the property owned. If your tenants don't mind take care of it (few do), why not?
