A Short Guide for Landlords

We have provided a summarized information guide below for Landlords. If you require further advice or assistance with any matter, please do not hesitate to contact us:

Preparing the Property

We have found that a good relationship with Tenants is essential to having a smooth-running rental relationship. As Property Managers this relationship is our job, but it is imperative that the Tenants feel comfortable in their temporary home, and that they are receiving real value for their money. It is understood therefore that a well presented and maintained property with good decor will go towards this, whilst also achieving a higher rental figure. Tenants also treat such a property with greater respect.

General Condition and Amenities

Electrical, gas, plumbing, refuse collection (rubbish disposal), air condition, and hot water systems must be safe, sound and in good working order. Repairs and maintenance are always at the Landlords expense unless misuse can be proven. Interior decorations must be in good condition and preferably in neutral colors.

Options For Your Property Furnishings

Your property can be rented fully furnished, part furnished or unfurnished. Which of these is appropriate will depend on the type of property and market conditions. We are always willing to give you advice on whether to furnish or not and to what level. Your property should provide these at the bare minimum, decent quality; carpets, curtains and light fittings. Remember that there will be some wear and tear on the property and any items provided.

Personal Items, Ornaments etc.

Personal possessions, ornaments, pictures, books etc. should be removed from the premises, especially those of real or sentimental value. Some items can be boxed, sealed and stored in the loft at the owner’s risk. All cupboards and shelf space should be left clear for the Tenant’s own use.

Presenting a Cleaned Property

At the commencement of the tenancy the property must be in a thoroughly clean condition, and at the end of each tenancy it is the Tenant’s responsibility to leave the property in a similar condition. Where they fail to do so, cleaning will be arranged at their expense.

Useful Information Regarding the Property for Your Tenant

It is helpful if you leave information for the Tenant, e.g. on operating the central heating and hot water system, washing machine and alarm system, and the day refuse (Garbage) is collected etc.

About the Keys for the Property

You should provide one set of keys for each Tenant. Where we will be managing, we will arrange that the Landlord provide us with duplicate cuts as required.

Importance of an Inventory of Your Property

It is most important that an inventory of contents and schedule of condition be prepared, in order to avoid misunderstanding or dispute at the end of a tenancy. Without such safeguards, it will be impossible for the Landlord to prove any loss, damage, or significant deterioration of the property or contents. In order to provide a complete service, we will if required arrange for a member of staff to prepare an inventory and schedule of condition, at the cost quoted in our Agency Agreement.
