Preparing your home for rent

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

A well presented property is the most important factor in attracting potential tenants as first impressions will help to determine the type of tenant and amount of rent they will pay.

COMMON QUESTIONS

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE MY HOME

Depending on your home it is recommended that all rooms, fittings and appliances are in working order. Have the property and carpets professionally cleaned, make sure all taps don’t drip, windows open and close properly, window coverings comply to legislation, all locks are working and have them keyed alike, fences and gates are in order, smoke alarms and safety switch installed. If there is a pool; all equipment is working and a Pool Safety Certificate obtained.
