For some, letting a property is an appealing investment opportunity. For others, it can provide an economical solution to filling a room or property that is not currently in use. Either way, a number of considerations need to be made when preparing to let a property.
Letting agents can help with every aspect of the letting process. Some landlords will choose a letting agent to simply market a property and then take over the management of it. Others prefer the entire process, including rent collection and emergency repairs, renewals, gas and electrical safety checks to be managed by a professional letting agent.
Preparing a rental property for a viewing will be similar to presenting a property for sale. The property needs to be clean, outstanding repairs should be completed and freshly decorated properties may be more appealing to some tenants.
For private rentals, the most common type of tenancy is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST). These tenancies usually begin as fixed term tenancies where the duration is defined from the outset, typically anywhere between 6 months to three years and mutually agreed between the landlord and tenant.
You went above and beyond what you needed to do and it meant it was a very stress free process from my end. I felt well informed at all times and you got the amount of contact just right.
