It’s important to use a good letting agent who can guide you through the letting process to ensure everything is carried out properly.
This will in turn help you attract the right type of tenants to your property; most professional tenants will only look to use a reputable agent to find their home and many will only use an Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) licensed agent so they are well protected.
With the increase in legislation such as the right to rent checks coming into force, it is becoming even more difficult to negotiate while making sure everything is done correctly.Your agent should be there ensuring you are not liable as the landlord for anything missed.
For example, some landlords often fall foul of Section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985. It is the most important part of the landlord’s obligations to carry out basic repairs to ensure the property is in a good state of repair and safe.
The landlord is responsible under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 for repairs to the structure and exterior of the dwelling, basins, sinks, baths and other sanitary, heating and hot water installations at the dwelling.
Again ensuring the property is well managed and regularly inspected will help landlords ensure that they achieve the best rents and secure the right tenants for their property.
