If you are a landlord, you want to avoid void periods as much as you can. When you are between tenancies, you don’t generate rental income. However, this time provides you with opportunities to improve the property, and it allows you to get to grips with regulations and key marketing aspects. If your property is empty, how you utilise this time will often define the success you achieve with your property.
Start with a deep clean
If you can let property when it has been cleaned to a high standard, you receive numerous benefits. A deep-clean can entice a better standard of a tenant to your property, and it can even help you generate a higher level of rental income. Also, if a tenant moves into a spotless property, they will be more likely to maintain the standard of cleanliness.
Hiring cleaning specialists incurs a fee, but it is a more than justifiable cost when letting property. If you need guidance on hiring specialists to carry out a deep clean of your rental property, we are the letting agents you can rely on.
Ensure the property is safe and complies with regulations
It is crucial landlords ensure their rental property complies with regulations. However, it isn’t always easy to do so, which is why you should call on the experts for support. When there is no tenant in place at your property, you have an excellent opportunity to arrange gas safety inspections, electrical tests and any check you need to ensure your rental property complies with all relevant regulations.
This is something we can arrange for you, and it allows you to provide a better standard of service to tenants when they move into your rental property.
You should prepare your rental property for a new tenant
While you are improving the standard of rental property, you should also enhance the standard of promotion. When your property has been cleaned to a high standard, take new photos. Improve your property listings to reach out to new tenants, and ensure your home appeals to the most likely tenant.
We are more than happy to assist you in this process, reaching out to tenants that will love your home. If your long-term aim is to generate more income, serve better tenants and be as successful as you can, enhancing your property between tenancies is an effective way to achieve your goals.
