MY INVESTMENT?

SELECTING A SUITABLE TENANT

Over the past decade the number of people

candidate has been chosen, a comprehensive

renting rather than buying a property has grown
dramatically. This expansion in the rental sector
has provided off-plan investors with an increase
in opportunities to generate rental income.
Historically, the UK residential rental market
has been one of the most reliably performing
investments, providing investors with a regular
income and a rising market to deliver a significant
long-term capital gain.
Buying an off-plan property may mean a
delay in receiving income while it is still under
development. However, higher yields can be
achieved due to the discounted purchase price.

A combination of effective marketing, rigorous
vetting and the thorough checking of references
and financial details are essential when
identifying a suitable tenant. Once the preferred
tenancy agreement and detailed inventory
of the property should be implemented to
ensure a mutually beneficial and complaintfree relationship for both landlord and tenant.
FURNISHED OR UNFURNISHED?
Many landlords prefer to rent out their properties
in an unfurnished state. This is because there is
a greater demand for unfurnished properties,
and it does not saddle the landlord with the
costs of wear and tear. A property rented out in
an unfurnished state would still be expected to
contain fundamental fixtures, such as carpets
or other flooring, curtains, light fittings and
possibly large kitchen appliances.

If a property is let in a furnished state, the landlord
will be responsible for the maintenance of any
furniture provided – which may range from a threepiece suite to an electric toaster. All soft furnishings
must comply with the furniture and furnishings
(fire) (safety) Regulations Act 1988.
AVOIDING THE VOIDS
Void periods are an inevitable part of the property
rental process. Lengthy void periods can significantly
reduce the investment’s returns, so keeping them
to an absolute minimum is crucial.
The most effective way to minimise void periods
is to follow the advice in the previous two points.
A carefully chosen tenant and a well maintained
property will most likely result in an enduring
tenancy. A realistic rent for the location of the
property, possibly combined with a discount for

long-term tenant. If a void period is unavoidable,
use the time to invest in your property or carry out
essential maintenance work.
