Landlords

 

General Property Condition

In order to let the property quickly and at the best possible rental value, it is essential that the property is presented in a well decorated, clean and tidy condition. Unless other arrangements are made in the tenancy agreement it is the landlord's responsibility to maintain the property in good order throughout the letting.

A property can be fully furnished, part furnished, or unfurnished, but in all cases it should include carpets and curtains (ideally professionally cleaned). Soft furnishings must comply with the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988, and all appliances should be tested and serviced if necessary.

Explanatory instruction notes regarding appliances and central heating should be left on display, along with any guarantees and service contracts. It is strongly advised to fit at least one smoke detector per floor. Fully labelled sets of keys should be left with the tenants and Jhoots Residential Lettings.

Who Should I Inform?

If the property is subject to a mortgage, your bank or building society will require details of the tenancy in order to consent to the letting. If the property is leasehold, it may also be necessary to obtain written consent from the freeholder.

Will Letting Affect My Insurance?

It is important to advise your insurance company in writing that the property is let, and ensure you are covered for third party, public liability and defective premises risks. The landlord is responsible for both building and personal contents insurance during the tenancy. However, the tenants are responsible for arranging insurance cover on their own personal belongings taken into the property.

What Happens About Council Tax?

Whilst your property is let, the tenants will be liable to pay Council Tax. You will become liable to pay the tax if the property is unoccupied between tenancies.

What About Other Aspects of Maintenance?

The landlord is usually responsible for the payment of ground rent, any service charges, most repairs, and maintenance of the property. We maintain lists of reliable contractors to cover all trades, however, you may leave specific instructions with us to use nominated contractors of your choice.
