Secure heavy and tall furniture

You could minimise damage to your property and injury to your tenants if you let them secure tall or heavy furniture.

This includes securely fixing and fastening items such as bookshelves, drawers, cabinets, TVs and whiteware to walls. Either you or the tenant could also add latches to cupboard doors to help prevent items from falling out. Securing latches can be particularly helpful in multi-storey apartment buildings designed to move in an earthquake.
