Tenancies should be run properly for a happy period of renting
27th Sep 2012
UK landlords should make sure that they are maintaining the tenancy in their property correctly in order to be certain that they are keeping the people who are living in their house to rent happy over the period they stay, an expert has advised.
While some tenants will want to just seek out somewhere with low rent and a passive landlord, most want to see their property managed well and have a landlord who seems to know what they are doing.
Malcolm Harrison, spokesman for the Tenancy Deposit Scheme, said that as well as the likes of material aspects of the tenancy, there are other issues which tenants will want to see from the off.
"Tenant's expectations are for the tenancy to be run properly, for there to be tenancy deposit protection and for the tenancy agreement to be drawn up properly. All those things are expected very much more than they would have been ten years ago."
The tenancy deposit protection is a scheme run by the government which looks after both parties in the event that there is a dispute over the return of a deposit on a property when it comes to the end of an agreement.
