Rent Your Property in South LanarkshireOctober 28, 2016 1:26 pm
There are a few options if you are looking to rent your property in South Lanarkshire – you can manage the tenancy yourself or you can appoint an agent to do it for you. Letting agents offer a full service that started with acquiring the right tenant and continues into running the tenancy for you. These are optional services but many landlords do make use of them to save themselves a lot of work, even more so if they don’t live in the area.
Finding the right tenant is always the first step in setting up the property. If you have a two or three bedroom house, even a larger property, then you may consider a family or a couple who want more space. Sometimes groups of friends or even students may band together to rent a house rather than a flat. Flats and apartments are popular with students and the area has a few notable universities and colleges that means there is always a demand for these properties. Depending on the facilities, older couples may choose to rent them, assuming there is easy access with lifts and other facilities. And young couples like a flat as a first property together, especially with easy access to Glasgow centre.
Renting out a property is a great way to make some money, cover your rent and even have a profit. You do need to conduct annual checks and have a system in place if there is a problem for the tenant to get emergency repairs completed. A letting agent can handle this for you if required.
