LETTING OUT YOUR PROPERTY

Letting out a property can be hard work. From advertising the house and finding an appropriate tenant, to managing the tenancy and maintaining the property, it’s not an easy task to take on alongside your day job.

Move Revolution are here to take some of this strain away. Thanks to our flexible hours – we’re open 8am-8pm, seven days a week – we’re regularly on hand to help around a time that suits you.

Our team are all based locally in the area they work in, so you can trust them to provide tenants with expert, local knowledge that is sure to have your property snapped up in no time.


LANDLORD RESPONSIBILITIES

Choosing to let out your property can be a big decision.

To help you make a decision about whether or not to become a landlord, we’ve listed some of the key responsibilities that come with the role:

Put your tenant’s deposit into a protection scheme

By law, as a landlord you must ensure that you deposit your tenant’s money into a protected scheme for the duration of their tenancy.

Maintain the property

It’s your responsibility to ensure the property is structurally sound and that any major repairs are undertaken. Additionally, be prepared for unexpected works to crop up – for example, a pipe bursting – that you may need to fix.

Carry out gas safety checks

You must arrange, and pay for, safety checks to be carried out on gas installations and appliances every 12 months.

ADVICE FOR LANDLORDS

Know the law

Before entering into the world of letting, ensure you at least have a basic knowledge of the laws and legal requirements, so you understand your rights.

Find the right tenant

Ensure the relevant referencing checks are carried out on potential tenants and that you’re satisfied with the outcome of these checks.

Find a good time for maintenance

If a large piece of work needs to be carried out on the property, try to do this when the tenant is away, or between one person moving out and the next moving in.
