Preparation

Decoration

Tenants are usually prepared to pay more to get more while a property in first-class order can usually be let more easily. Does your flat or house offer the following features to potential tenants?

  • Fresh decorations – light colours, such as white or off-white, are always acceptable.
  • High quality carpets of the same colour throughout. These should be light and neutral – biscuit/beige colours are popular, as are wooden floors.
  • Attractive, good-quality, well-lined curtains or blinds.
  • Well-maintained exterior and tidy, well-planted gardens.

Fixtures & fittings

All fixtures and appliances should be serviced before the start of the tenancy and in good working order. If you have instruction booklets, make them available or write out clear instructions for use. Your property should always offer:

  • A modern and well-equipped kitchen. Ideally there should be a washing machine and separate dryer (or combined machine to save space), dishwasher, large fridge/freezer and microwave.
  • A modern bathroom with an effective power shower, modern fittings and good lighting. Tiled floors are preferable to carpets.
  • Good wardrobe space in the bedrooms.
  • An efficient central heating system and plenty of hot water.

Furnished v Unfurnished

There's often no difference between the rental achieved for a property whether it is furnished or unfurnished.

  • 'Unfurnished' is normally defined as being fully carpeted (or with wooden floors in the reception areas), fully curtained and with white goods provided in the kitchen.
  • 'Furnished' is usually defined as being a property ready for someone to move into. The furniture needs to be good quality and the property should be uncluttered. We're more than happy to advise you on what should be left and what should be removed.
