Property Investor News | Re-leasing your Property

Tenants moving out and it’s time to re-lease?

Here are eight top tips to ensure your property is as well-presented as possible.

– Street appeal is of paramount importance. You should ensure that your windows, doors and gutters are clean and that your pathway is clear. External paintwork should be touched up and endeavor to keep your garden looking healthy and well maintained.


– Repair everything that needs repairing! Replace any broken light fittings, tighten loose door handles, or damaged fly screens on windows and doors. If you have a leaky tap, fix it! Don’t lose leasing opportunities because minor repairs have not been done.

– Keep your paint scheme to neutral colours. A neutral scheme will keep your interior design timeless and it will appeal to a wider group of tenants.

– Rental properties should endeavor to look spacious and feel inviting for the potential new tenant. Keep it clutter-free, clean, well-lit and free of unpleasant odours that may exist.


– Rental properties that are situated in a noisy locations should avoid inspection times during peak noise periods at the property.

– Do not forget the importance of clean carpets. Make your first impression count by providing a clean and fresh indoor environment. Your goal here is to make it easy for the tenants to envision themselves moving straight in!


– Make sure all your electrical wiring are safe – including any electrical appliances that will be included in the property.

– Protect yourself – take out comprehensive insurance, including Public Liability Insurance. This will protect you from any legal issues that may occur if a tenant injures themselves during the inspection.
