General Housekeeping
  • Apply for mortgage lenders consent

  • Notify your insurance companies

  • Obtain gas and electrical appliance safety certificates. (Oil & Solid Fuel C.H. Systems must also be checked & serviced annually - record to be kept)

  • Decide what furniture and /or fittings you intend to leave in the property. It is not advisable to leave bedding, televisions, videos and personal items

  • Ensure furnishings to be left in the property comply with fire regulations

  • Carry out any necessary repairs and remove anything potentially dangerous

  • Make sure the property is in a clean and tidy condition, particularly the kitchen, bathroom, carpets and curtains - as YOU would hope to find it if moving in yourself! A Tenant can tell if the property is well cared for and is more likely to look after it during the tenancy if it is clean at the start. We would like to get to the stage of having the property professionally cleaned before the new tenant enters so when they leave the same company is used at the tenant's expense so quality of cleanliness is maintained throughout ownership

  • Overseas landlords apply for tax exemption certificates - please ask your Oasis Living letting centre for more details
