Preparing a Home for Tenants

If you have made the decision to rent out your property then you are about to take on a great responsibility. Providing a home for someone for income means that you will have a lot more to think about in terms of that particular property.

It is the right of a tenant and the responsibility of the owner to ensure that the home is safe, liveable and clean. You will have a few items to take care of before you should deem your property fit for rental. Enlisting the services of a reputable agent to manage your property is highly advised.

E Property Rentals are specialists in their field and offer all clients friendly and personal service. They can advise you on areas you might like to focus on when preparing your home for rental; however, in the meantime, here is some basic advice.

Safety is Paramount

The nightmare that would follow in the event of a tenant suffering an injury over something faulty in your home could be endless. Aside from it being the right thing to do, for your own sake, you want to ensure that the premises are safe.

If you have the knowledge you can check yourself but if there is anything you are unsure of then it might be a good idea to have the building checked by a professional such as a building and pest inspector. They can check for structural faults and anything untoward where electrical items, amongst others, are concerned and they will advise of any repairs required.

Aesthetic Appeal

The better the condition of your home, the more likely you are to attract responsible, long-term tenants. There is no need to go overboard but if your property has peeling paint, worn carpets, torn bathroom curtains or a well-worn kitchen benchtop, making adjustments to fairly minor things like these can go a long way to improving your rental income.

Cleanliness

If you have ever been a tenant yourself you would know that upon leaving you are required to have an exit clean carried out. It is therefore fair for a tenant to move into a home that is clean. If you lack the motivation or time to give the home a good scrub and clean yourself, then hiring a cleaner to do the heavy work is an ideal alternative.
