5 ways to be a good landlord
The best landlords will care about making sure their property is let legally and that their tenants are happy. Follow our top five ways to be the best landlord to help you secure the best paying tenants, top rental income, and retain the value of your property. 1. Ensure your property is let legally with a gas safety certificate, electrical and PAT testing, as well as extra precautions such as smoke alarms. 2. Keep up to date with the latest letting rules and regulations. 3. Ensure your property is in good order. The best landlords realise that if they keep their property in good condition, the tenants are more likely to look after it. 4. Fix things quickly if they go wrong. And don’t ignore your tenants - it might be something important affecting your property. 5. Do what you can to retain good tenants. Good tenants are worth their weight in gold, so try and keep them if you can. It’s always worth chatting to the tenant to find out if they are happy or not. It might take a quick paint job or new shower, but for a few hundred pounds, to retain someone paying you thousands on an annual basis, it’s well worth it!
