I am moving overseas soon and want to let out my property, I am worried about tenants damaging my home as I will likely move back myself to the property at some point. How am I safeguarded against this?
We know renting out your home can be a daunting experience. We recommend you select an agent who is a member of ARLA (Association of Residential Lettings Agents) who has a large database of tenants. At ludlowthompson we have over 600,000 applicants on our database built up over 10 years. This means our tenant referencing can be one of the most thorough on the market and we can ensure we get the very best tenants for your property.
As far as potential damage to your home is concerned, a thorough inventory of the condition and belongings in your property will be carried out by an independent APIP qualified inventory clerk. We suggest if you are to rent the property furnished to remove any valuable or sentimental items that you would not wish to be included in the tenancy.
When the tenancy comes to an end if the condition of the property is found to include damage beyond expected wear and tear, the tenant would be liable to pay for the repairs, the cost of which would be deducted from the tenants deposit.
We would also conduct interim inspections which are a full condition report of the property and how the tenants are looking after it to give you absolute peace of mind.
