Before a property can be let, there are a number of things which the owner will need to deal with to ensure that the tenancy runs smoothly, and also that the landlord complies with the law.
You will need to start by notifying your mortgage provider (if you have an existing mortgage).
If you are a leaseholder, you should examine the terms of your lease, and obtain any necessary written consent before letting.
Insurance providers also need to be notified to change the level of cover provided.
Make sure you have an EPC for a property before you rent, a property must have a minimum rating of E on its EPC or it will be unlawful to rent. A landlord could be fined up to £4,000.
Obtain safety certificates for gas, electrical, oil and solid fuel, appliances and heating systems.
Take out all essential repairs and make sure anything potentially dangerous is taken care of.
Your property can be let fully furnished, part furnished or unfurnished. Which of these is appropriate will depend on the type of property and local market conditions. Ensure all furnishings to be left comply with fire regulations.
Ensure the property is cleaned to a fair and decent standard. Get the garden clean and tidy. If a property looks like it is well maintained the tenant is more likely to look after it throughout the tenancy.
