If you have planned on renting out your property in Edinburgh, then you can only get the best out of it if you find a suitable price and a reliable tenant. You need to carry out certain steps in order to get this done. First and foremost, you need to be aware of the fact that letting a property is complex and time consuming. You need to be aware of the latest legislation and regulations to ensure that you fulfill your tenant’s rights and provide them a safe and secure place.

First impression is the last impression

It is important that you carry out all the maintenance work on your property before you open the door for potential tenants. The property should look its best in order to get the best price possible.

Hence you must get started with all the preparations. The exterior of the house matters a lot as it is the very first thing that the tenant will look at. If there is a garden or porch anywhere around the house, you must tidy it up. Mowing the lawn, removing unsightly plants and adding new plants will enhance the exterior. Washing the windows and giving a fresh paint to their frames and doors will also improve the look of the house. Repairing all the blemishes and cracks visible and keeping bin’s out of the sight is going to make the house look clean and fresh.

The landlord must also pay special attention to the interior of the house. If the rooms and walls need a fresh paint, then do so to re-energize the house. As a landlord, you must thoroughly clean the house, from floors to carpets, windows to all the fixtures and fittings. Check the water pressure level in all the taps and showers, fix the leaky tap’s, replace the broken tiles and burned out bulbs. Check all the electrical and gas equipment to ensure that everything is in proper working condition. Also make sure that the house is free from unpleasant odors of smoking and pets.

Make sure that the property meets all the standards set by the government for tenant’s security. Your property must meet all the health and safety obligations.

By spending some time, money and energy on your property you can surely transform it and gain from it financially. A nice property can be let easily and also the added benefit of a good rent.
