Our aim is to maximise the return on your investment while safeguarding your interests. By getting to know you and your property we can ensure we meet your objectives. We have extensive knowledge of the market and many years experience in attracting quality corporate and private tenants. We believe that presenting your property in the right way is an essential first step to a successful tenancy. Below we have detailed a few points to consider before marketing your property.
Furnished or unfurnished?
The amount of rent achieved seldom differs when offering a property furnished or unfurnished. However, as a general rule smaller properties should be offered furnished and larger properties or those appealing to the family market usually attract more interest if unfurnished.
Whether furnished or unfurnished tenants are usually attracted by a modern and neutral interior finish. Our advice would be to keep the décor simple and uncomplicated in order to present a spacious and modern living space which appeals to as many potential tenants as possible.
Cleaning and inventory
The property should always be presented in the best possible condition. If not organised by a previous tenant we recommend that the property is professionally cleaned before viewings commence as the property is likely to be let more quickly if presented properly. An inventory will need to be undertaken before new tenants move in to ensure the property is returned in the same condition at the end of the tenancy. It is also important to maintain the standard of the property while vacant, e.g. keeping the entrance free of post. Prospective tenants will be presented with a desirable, well maintained property, inspiring confidence from the start of the relationship.
All landlords must ensure that their property has the correct consents before proceeding with a tenancy. These include consents from your lender if the property is subject to a bank loan or mortgage, and permission from the freeholder to sub-let if the property is leasehold. It is also important to ensure you have the correct landlord’s insurance covering the building and your contents.
