TOP TIPS FOR LANDLORDS
Take our advice, we know what we are talking about. Advertising your property at a higher price than advised will cost you more money in the long term.
Decorate in light neutral colours. Make sure kitchens and bathrooms are clean and hygienic. When picking carpets don’t pick very light colours. They look modern but will stain quickly especially in high traffic areas.
If you are letting your property fully furnished, pick furnishings that are modern and easy to live with.
When buying an investment property don’t solely take advice from Estate Agents. Ask us, we will be able to advise you on what type of rental property is in demand.
“To Let” boards will increase interest in your property. People drive round areas that they would like to live to see what is available.
Even in unfurnished properties it is advisable that items such as cookers, fridge/freezers and washing machines are included.
Properties which include an allocated parking space always command more interest, especially in urban areas.
If your property has a garden ensure it’s neat and tidy - mow the lawn and weed the flowerbeds. Give window frames and doors a lick of paint.
Have your property professionally cleaned prior to tenancy commencement. This will encourage tenants to leave the property as they found it.
One or two agents working on letting your property is best. You should expect weekly progress reports on interest and viewings. Agree a timescale of three weeks in which to find a tenant or introduce another agent. Having every agent advertising your property can look desperate.
Two months prior to the tenancy end date write to your tenants to see if they would like to renew for another fixed term period. Doing this gives both you and your tenants more security. Avoid letting tenancies roll month to month as tenants may not consider how much time you need to re-let your property.
If you let your property on a 6 month tenancy from the middle of the year, take into consideration that this may leave you without a tenant in the winter months. This is traditionally a much more difficult time to let. Negotiate with tenants on tenancy length.
Demand for rental properties can change from month to month. Review your rent regularly to ensure your investment is giving you the best return.
Always ensure that you carry out gas safety checks on an annual basis. Not adhering to this could land you in very hot water. Energy Performance Certificates are also required.
