There’s a difference between normal wear and tear and tenant damage, but coming up with a precise definition is sometimes hard. The courts don’t even agree all the time. So, when you’re renting out a property, you’re often left to your best judgment about what qualifies as damage that could have been avoided during a tenancy.
As a professional Nashville property management company, we have a lot of experience inspecting properties after move-out and returning security deposits to tenants. Our expertise is a huge resource for the owners and investors we work with because we can more easily identify the difference between normal wear and tear and accidental or intentional damage.
In this blog, we’re hoping we can help you understand the difference.
