Protect Yourself and your belongings with Renters’ Insurance

If you rent your living space, it’s important for you to understand that we as property managers have insurance that covers our buildings, but our insurance does not cover your personal property.  You need to have Renters’ Insurance to protect your personal belongings; including furniture, clothing, electronics, and anything else you keep in your apartment, from loss or damage due to fire, water, or theft.  Unexpected situations can happen, and we want you and your belongings to be protected!

Report Maintenance Issues
It is commonly believed that owners do not want their tenants to contact them when they have a maintenance issue.  Many situations that occur around a living space do not require a major expense to repair, but if neglected, could become a much larger and more expensive problem.  If the issue is causing an inconvenience to you, it’s possible that the landlord would be willing to repair the item.  It is usually very important to the landlord that the home remains in good condition so that it can continue to be occupied.  Tenants need not fear retaliatory actions from Brian Davis Properties LLC.  You can easily report the problem using our Request Service page.  Usually, you’ll find that we appreciate your concern with regards to the care and maintenance of the property.
