Can you spot all the hazards in the street?

Deciding where to purchase a property is one of the most important aspects to consider when looking for a new property to rent out. A quiet, clean, safe street with friendly neighbours shouldn’t be too much to ask for, right?

Landlords are responsible for providing a safe and secure place for their tenants to live. However, how the street is maintained and the everyday hustle and bustle are out of their control. Tenants should watch for problems that frequently occur in the neighbourhood and report them to the appropriate authorities, such as the local council. 

CIA Landlords have made a brainteaser to highlight some of the potential hazards that can arise on a daily basis in a neighbourhood. See if you can spot eight hazards in the image below within 90 seconds! 

SPOILER ALERT! Did you spot all 8 hazards?

See below for the full reveal and list of hazards.

  • A football in the middle of the road – Objects in roads can cause collisions with pedestrians and vehicles. 
  • Child running in the road – Children should be supervised at all times when walking along busy streets and near high-traffic areas.
  • A dog walking off the lead on its own – Unsupervised animals are a danger to not only the animal but members of the public.
  • Two children riding on one bike – Riding a bike in a dangerous manner can put the cyclist in danger and cause collisions with pedestrians and other road users.
  • A car parked on the pavement – Vehicles parked on pavements can force people into the road, which is extremely dangerous, especially for parents with pushchairs, wheelchair users and children.
  • The front door of a house left open – Leaving your front door open/unlocked can invalidate your home insurance.
  • A pothole in the road – Potholes not only cause damage to vehicles but can also lead to collisions as vehicles swerve to avoid them. 
  • A skateboarder crossing the road  in front of a car – Pedestrians should always try to cross roads at signalised crossings to prevent road accidents.

When renting out a property it is important to protect yourself from any risks associated with a rental property. Landlord insurance can protect you against liability claims from tenants, third parties and usually covers physical damage to the property, giving you peace of mind knowing that your rental property is covered.
