Default Get great tenants and good buy-to-let insurance

Many new landlords will be keen ensure that the tenants they get in to rent their property are trustworthy, careful and respectful people who will look after their property and pay the bills on time. However, the reality is that these kinds of tenants are sometimes difficult to find.

There are some things to remember when looking for perfect tenants and the first question landlords should ask themselves is ‘would I want to live here?’

If your property is not up to the standards that quality tenants look for, you simply won’t attract them. Location and price are major factors, as are décor and fixtures and fittings. Decorate your property with quality finishes in a style that will attract smart, young professionals and you’re half way there!

Experts claim that bad tenants rarely sign leases on bad properties, so the quality of your property is the most important factor when marketing your property to the right kind of tenant.

Landlords need to ensure that their properties are well maintained and that they are fully covered by buy-to-let property insurance so that any maintenance issues can be paid for and carried out quickly and without delay.

Many quality tenants will not stand for being turfed out of their property while works are being carried out, so bear this in mind if you want to make sure your tenants are the right kind of people.

Lastly, it is a good idea if landlords take a walk around their property and look at it from a tenant’s point of view. Do the appliances work and are they of good quality? Are the outdoor areas well kept and are there any bad or damp smells in the house? The look of the house from the front, i.e the ‘curb appeal,’ is also vital for getting those quality renters through the door with a smile on their faces.
