Tis the Season: Should You Let Your Carson Renters Hang Christmas Lights?

Carson Tenant Hanging Christmas Lights for the Holiday SeasonEmbellishing your home for the Christmas holiday is a time-honored tradition for renters and homeowners alike. Many tenants want to adorn their eaves and windows with strings of lights, adding a cheerful twinkle to long winter nights. But decking out Christmas lights on a house is not as simple – or as safe– as decking out other holiday decorations. Also, you can never be guaranteed what the ending will be, as everyone has different ideas of what constitutes a tasteful holiday display. For more than one reason, Carson property owners and landlords should think twice before letting their renters hang Christmas lights on their own.

Consider the Risks

As specified by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are more than 1,000 serious injuries generated by hanging Christmas decorations each year. Falls, electrical shocks, cuts, and abrasions severe enough to drive people to the emergency room are just hardly any of the probable endangerments of hanging lights.

Another liability risk comprises of embellishments that defy the principles of Common Interest Communities (commonly known as Homeowner Associations) and other local governances. A CIC may possibly have firm procedures about how many and what form of Christmas decorations are acceptable, as well as when and how long they can be exhibited. If your tenant violates CIC regulations, you may find yourself on the hook for fines, disciplinary action, or other unwanted consequences.

Keeping your property in compliance may indicate that you should prevent renters from hanging their own Christmas lights. While no one desires to be a holiday grinch, the liability that comes with tenants making their own Christmas decorating is not something property owners can afford to leave to chance. Thus, the seriousness of debating and drafting practical holiday decorating guidelines with your tenants.
