How to Spread the Love as a Landlord or Tenant in Sawbridgeworth and Bishop's Stortford

In this two-minute read, we look at ten ways to improve any landlord and tenant relationship.

 

If you do a quick Google search on ‘how to keep love alive’, communication comes out on top of many of the pieces of advice shared.

 

Almost all relationships benefit from good communication. And that advice extends beyond being a partner, parent, or friend – it can easily be applied to the landlord and tenant relationship.

 

But there’s more to it than that.

 

When it’s done well, the landlord and tenant relationship is precisely that – a relationship rather than a transaction.

 

Below are ten ways landlords and tenants can avoid losing that loving feeling.

 

What tenants love about good landlords

·         They ensure the property is well maintained and repairs are carried out quickly.

·         They show empathy and fairness in their dealings with tenants.

·         They recognise that even though it may be the landlord’s property – it’s the tenants’ home.

·         They respect the tenants’ right to privacy and never drop in unannounced (there are regulations around this – contact us to find out more).

·         They appreciate good tenants and are fair if and when there’s a need to raise the rent.

 

What landlords love about good tenants

·         They pay the rent on time, every time.

·         They look after the property as if it’s their own.

·         They don’t cause the landlord any issues with neighbours.

·         They communicate if there is an issue, such as a repair or a change in their circumstances.

·         They respect their boundaries – some landlords are hands-off and have us manage their properties. This doesn’t affect the tenancy adversely, and it can enhance it in many ways.
