Renting out... Self Agent V's Letting Agent

RENT OUT YOURSELF - BUT FOLLOW THE LEGAL GUIDELINES ETC

YOU HAVE A MUCH BETTER IDEA OF WHO YOU ARE RENTING TO - NOT JUST WHO EVER HAS THE MONEY.

BE SURE THAT YOU LEAVE IT WITH A TRUSTED FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND WHO CAN DO REGULAR PROPERTY CHECKS ETC.

ALSO GOOD TO HAVE A CONTACT FOR MAINTAINENCE ISSUES ETC WHILE YOU ARE AWAY.

DO NO LEAVE ANYTHING IN THE HOUSE THAT YOU DO NOT WANT DAMAGED... TAKE IT FROM SOME ONE WHO KNOWS.

BE FUSSY - DO NOT PUT DAMAGE DOWN TO WEAR AND TEAR LIKE THE AGENTS ARE SO KEEN TO DO ... A HEAD HOLE IN A WALL IS NOT WEAR AND TEAR IT IS SERIOUS DAMAGE.

MAKE SURE YOU CAREFULLY OUTLINE CLEANING REQUIREMENTS FOR CURTAINS, LOUNGE SUITES ETC,

WE HAD NEW CURTAINS WASHED IN A NORMAL WASHING MACHINE 2K WORTH OF CURTAINS BEYOND REPAIR - THEY SRUNK!

JUST BE CAREFUL WITH AGENTS - WE FOUND THAT SOME DO NOT CARE LESS - ITS ONLY MONEY AT THE END OF THE DAY TO THEM - NOT THEIR HOUSE!

WE RENTED OUR HOUSE OUT IN NZ WHILE WE WERE OVER FOR A HOLIDAY WITH FAMILY IN DUBLIN - THEY AGENT DID NOT GIVE A HOOT AS TO WHO WAS IN THE HOUSE - IT WAS NEVER THE SAME.

NEEDLESS VANDELISM IN MY OPINION
