What exactly does the Board of Health do? And how does it relate to real estate investing? What should you do if you receive a notice from the Board of Health regarding one of your investment properties?

On today’s show, I’m answering these questions, and more. This episode is one I am sharing to help you avoid mistakes, and know what to expect as an investor. I’m elaborating on how you can protect yourself and your business on today’s episode of Investing in Real Estate!

More About This Show
The Board of Health is a county-operated part of government that works to improve health and safety in their area. For housing and neighborhoods, the Board of Health meets to compile a list of rules, which they enforce. They drive around neighborhoods looking for health and safety hazards, such as high grass, debris, and broken windows.

As a real estate investor, you will deal with the board of health. It’s inevitable; this is just part of the business! But if you can accept this fact, and be prepared to quickly and efficiently respond to their notices, your business will run smoothly.

The first time I received a letter from the Board of Health about one of my properties, my heart sunk. These notices are printed on official stationary with intimidating wording. If you’re new to the game, you might be scared too. The truth is, the Board of Health is mostly comprised of good people trying to protect the community. All you need to do is address the issue; it’s really not a big deal.

If you run your business the way I recommend, these issues will likely be taken care of before you even receive the letter from the Board of Health. A professional, effective property management team will know how to resolve issues with the Board of Health. I recommend having mail regarding your properties sent to your property manager first. Doing so ensures that someone locally is notified of any issues immediately.

On today’s show, I’ll talk about the mistakes I’ve made in the past with the Board of Health. I’ll also explain how you should address an issue with the Board of Health in two separate scenarios. As a real estate investor, this is an issue you need to prepare for; don’t miss this episode of Investing in Real Estate!
