The Coronavirus pandemic is on everyone’s mind right now. So, what can we do as landlords to protect the health and safety of our staff, property owners, tenants and vendors?

On this episode of Five Minute Friday, Bob explains how the North County Property Group team is staying on top of our job responsibilities through a remote work setup and what you can do to reach us if need be. He discusses the precautions NCPG is taking when it comes to fulfilling maintenance requests and performing inspections during the COVID-19 health crisis.

Bob goes on to share how NCPG is adjusting our showing policies for active rental listings, introducing us to the idea of a Rent Ready Date and explaining why we are suspending Open Houses for the time being.
