Valuable Advice for Landlords Courtesy of Landlord and Tenants Solicitors

As a landlord it is your right to receive rent on time from tenants, to receive property in an undamaged and unaltered state at the end of a tenancy, to be able to conduct regular scheduled inspections and also to be able to rent out your property to tenants based on signed tenancy agreement. However, for landlords to be able to ensure a problem free tenancy they must carry out a careful planning of the property with the help of qualified Landlord and Tenants Solicitors.

So…what has to be done?

Landlords need to take care of several aspects associated with their property which may include:-

  • Screening of Tenants:-
    • This way a landlord may be able to differentiate potential fraudulent tenants from the genuine ones. Make sure you ask for:
      • Driving licence or any other form valid proof of identity.
      • Bank statements from the past six months.
      • Deposit equivalent to six weeks of rent.
    • Writing a tenancy Agreement:-
    • Go Over your Mortgage Statements:-
      • Many mortgage statements state that the borrowers need a written consent from lenders before the property can be rented out.
