5 Top Tips to Help You Let Successfully

You might have heard much of what we’re about to say already, but it’s definitely worth having a read, as what follows could be the difference between finding a tenant at a great price or finding your property gets ‘stuck’ on the market.

Top Tips

1. Clean every corner

A tidy, clean, fresh smelling home has instant appeal. If you can’t face doing a major clean yourself, call in a cleaning company to do it for you.

2. Be legally ready

There are many rules and legislations that you as a landlord need to adhere to. Be ready by ensuring your safety certificates have been completed and any remedial work has been carried out. 

3. Lighten up

Unless your home is blessed with natural light beaming in through floor-to-ceiling windows, there’s a chance your home could benefit from some light therapy. Paint dark walls light, neutral colours; this alone will make any property feel more spacious.

4. Think outside

A common mistake people make when preparing their property for let is to focus all their attention on the interior, overlooking the outdoor areas. So, with that in mind, make sure your garden lawn is cut, the barbeque is covered up, and that the outdoor space is neat and tidy in general.

5. Repair and replace

Whether it’s a dripping tap, a crack in the plaster or a wonky blind, get it repaired or buy new ones. Try to look at your property from the perspective of a potential tenant.
