Make Sure Your Chapter is Charging Damage Deposits and Completing Room Inspections

Improper care of a fraternity house can decrease the value of the real estate and negatively affect a chapter's image with its campus and local community. Room inspections and damage deposits help prevent damage. This management practice provides a method of determining the amount of reimbursement to collect from those who fail to properly care for chapter property.
