Landlords Urged To Ensure Rental Properties Remain Occupied over Christmas Holidays
This is the time of year when most amateur property investors and landlords start to wind down ready to enjoy the festive session, whilst the more professional property investors and portfolio landlords start planning their goal setting for 2015.
However, there is one thing that landlords need to make sure of over the festive holidays – Will their rental properties be occupied for the whole of Christmas and New Year?
If tenants are going to be away over the Christmas period then they need to make sure that the landlord or their letting agent is aware, because the majority of rental property problems happen during the winter months, with the highest concentration of issues recorded over the Christmas and New Year holidays, especially if the tenants decide turn off the central heating in order to save money while they are away.
Bigger problems can also occur if the tenant decides to notify the whole world on social media sites that they are going away on holiday or to visit family and their rental properties will be empty!
The last thing landlords need is a call from your tenants or their neighbours because they think your rented property has been burgled, so any broken doors or windows will need repairing quickly, the same goes for tackling burst pipes!
