Normal Wear and Tear

Below is an interesting article on normal wear and tear vs tenant damage you may find useful. Normal wear and tear is damage that naturally occurs in an investment property due to aging. It typically results from a tenant living in the property and is considered normal depreciation. It’s not caused by neglect or abuse of the property.
