Landlords in 2023 face a multitude of challenges, but following these five steps will help ensure a tenancy runs smoothly.
Create a welcome pack
Provide tenants with a welcome pack containing information such as landlord and agent contact details, the location of instruction manuals and electric/gas meters, and what to do in an emergency.
Use short vacant periods to get the boiler serviced, install energy-saving lightbulbs and check the condition of floor/loft insulation.
With lots of legal changes on the horizon, such as eviction notice reforms and pet-friendly tenancies, it’s vital that landlords are looking ahead.
It’s essential to know when your mortgage deal ends so you don’t get caught out. Contact a mortgage broker well before your deal ends to see what’s available.
Whether it’s with your tenant or managing agent, clear communication should be a priority. Checking in with tenants periodically is a great way to keep on top of repairs and maintenance.
