Landlords should make sure that they are preparing the home

Landlords should make sure that they are preparing the home

Landlords who are looking to make their homes more appealing should make sure that they are dealing with all the little things rather than heading towards big scale changes in the household.

According to Lee Grandin, director at Landlord Mortgages, it is the case that smaller repairs and keeping up with maintenance are the most pressing issues in the home.

"General regular maintenance is your safeguard against the property falling into disrepair that will inevitably lead to expensive repair bills."

He also went on to say that many landlords make the mistake of undertaking big changes with little benefit in terms of rent gains.

Earlier this week, there was good news for tenants, when data from haart showed that rental prices are dropping in the middle part of 2012. The average cost per month of renting a house in the UK now sits at 4.3 per cent lower than it did in April.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801384215-ADNFCR
