If you don’t have the time or don’t live locally, our Property Management Department may be able to help you with these improvements.
If you’re currently living in the property or have tenants there, make sure the place is tidy, welcoming and free from clutter. Homely touches such as fresh flowers, an open fire and pictures on the walls can make a huge difference. Create a welcoming aroma, with fresh cut flowers or scented candles. If possible, open windows to give rooms a good airing and always keep the windows clean.
Consider the up-front costs
There are several up-front costs associated with letting your property which you’ll need to budget for. Most can be deducted from the first instalment of rent – these include; Gas Safety Certificate, Energy Performance Certificate, Electrical Certificate, Inventory, Tenancy Agreement Fees, Commission Fees.
Guiding you through the legislation

Consider Property Management
Today’s tenants have high expectations, particularly if they are paying premium rent. Some tenants will only consider properties that are professionally managed.
Property Management can be crucial in getting maximum rental returns on your property.
If you instruct Mountgrange Heritage to manage your property, we will look after the general day-to-day management, as well as more complex issues such as emergency repairs, collection of rent, transfer of utilities and much more.
Completing the process
Upon receiving an offer from a prospective tenant, we will contact you with the details and negotiate on your behalf. If you choose to accept the offer, we make sure the arrangement of the tenancy goes smoothly, by:
- Collecting references from the tenant(s)
- Preparing and arranging the signing of Tenancy Agreement by both parties
- Collecting the initial rent and deposit
- Organising an inventory to be prepared and checked with the tenant
- Transferring the utility accounts
