State Specific Question About: TENNESSEE (TN)

Can anyone advise me about the liability in renting my home that has an above ground pool off the deck? I am new to landlord business. Thank you for your help and advice. --68.52.x.xxx

Remove the pool before renting the house.

The liability if you leave it is TREMENDOUS. --4.165.xx.xx

It would probably be better if you had it professionally winterized and shut with a cover that keeps leaves out, not the kind that fills up with water itelf. Then have the pool company check on it periodically. Pools, as you know, require a lot of maintenance for water quality. A tenant could ruin it in a short time besides hurting themself or a friend of theirs. You may want to contact an attorney locally to draw up a clause for the lease. But remember that lawyers make money from lawsuits so there might be a temptation on the attorneys part to create a clause that could cause a problem itself. I've dealt with a lot of attorneys over trust and wills and real estate and corporate issues and some of them will plant a bad seed to get future business. --76.99.xxx.xxx

My 1st rental had a pool exactly as you've described. Get rid of it; the liability, worry and expenses are not worth the trouble . I was fortunate in that we had great tenants from purchase till' the property was sold.
