Properties are as individual as the objectives of the landlord, so our guidance for any two clients is never the same.
However, our landlord advice below gives some general pointers to prospective landlords - whether the property will always be an investment or will be needed for your own use in the future:
Make sure your agent clearly understands your wishes. For example you may want a particular type of tenant; one without children or pets for instance. You may want a tenant who will offer you the highest rent or you may simply be interested in people who will be good neighbours.
As a Propertymark Protected Firm, Bennett Estate Agents is registered with the Client Money Protection Scheme. Our Client Money Handling Procedures are available here.
The general rule is that smaller properties or those of modest proportions should be offered furnished, while large properties, or those let for a longer period of time, should be unfurnished.
Make sure the property is thoroughly cleaned throughout, and carpets are in good condition or have been replaced.
Tenants are often attracted by a neutral and modern interior finish, so try to cater to the contemporary tastes of today's tenants. Uncomplicated furnishings will make a lettings property look more spacious as well.
During marketing make sure you keep the property looking its best. Don't let junk mail build up on the doorstep, or let the house or garden deteriorate in any way. During winter months it is crucial that your property is warm and well lit.
In the case of family homes, the ideal time to launch is from spring to early summer, because many families wish to be settled before the new school year in September.
Make sure that your agent has a good track record for the type of property you own.
