Help & Tips
Getting the property ready for rental
Now that you have decided to rent out your property you will want to maximise the letting potential. The most important thing to remember is that you are not going to be the one living in the property, so your personal taste should take second place to what the market demands. Better properties tend to attract better tenants and yield the highest rents.
The first thing that a potential tenant sees is the front of the property, so the exterior should be in good, fresh decorative order. Any pathways and driveways should be cleared of weeds and should be tidy, presentable and litter free.
Trim hedges, mow the lawn, repair any cracks, holes or blemishes or walls, give the windows a coat of paint and make sure the house number is clearly visible.
If you are letting a garage with the property, this should also be cleared and made ready for use. The garden should also be tidy and presented in an attractive manner, dig up any dead or unsightly plants and if possible add some new ones.
Ensure that all available utilities are connected to the property including, telephone line, gas, water and electricity. Where provided, check any LPG/OIL tanks are in working condition and full and that any septic tanks attached to the property are emptied.
Furnishings, Carpets, Curtains & General Interior
Your property can be let fully furnished, part furnished or non-furnished, this will be entirely up to you. We can advise you at the time on whether to furnish or not, and to what level.
You will find that most tenants prefer plain, neutral colours for decoration and you will also need to take into consideration wear and tear, especially on carpets.
Carpets should be good quality, practical and hard wearing, it may also be appropriate to fit wooden floors in some of the rooms. Whatever you decide, it should be good enough to last. Bathrooms should have a good quality shower. Kitchens, ideally will be well equipped and functional. Again, good quality is important in these areas.
ALL electrical, plumbing, waste, central heating and hot water systems MUST be safe, sound and in good working order.
Any instruction/operating manuals for any appliances and electrical equipment should be left in the property. Details of any maintenance contracts should also be supplied.
Before the commencement of a tenancy the whole property should be thoroughly cleaned.
Refer a landlord to Avani & get a gift!
Do you want to earn £25 in high street vouchers?
‘I referred my Landlord and my Uncle to Avani Property and they gave me £25 in vouchers… Twice’!
At Avani we always have Tenants waiting to rent a property. We are always on the lookout for more Landlords to meet Tenant demand.
Because of this, we have introduced the Landlord Referral Scheme where anybody can refer a Landlord to us and potentially earn themselves £25 in vouchers.
How it works
To refer a Landlord to us you must register the referral by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by contacting us by telephone with your details and the details of the Landlord you are referring.
• Remember to ask permission from the Landlord prior to referral
• To qualify for the referral fee, Avani Property must successfully let the property for the referred Landlord.
• Referral payment is per Landlord, not property.
• Landlords who already use the services of Avani Property or who have previously used the services of Avani Property are not eligible under the Landlord Referral Scheme.
• We will pay the referral fee again and again for each Landlord you refer to us.
Being independent in the property industry our ambition is to bring family values of honesty, support and trust to what we do.
