We came across an interesting article at City Rental Services recently concerning fixtures and fittings in rented properties, and thought it was worth sharing.
According to a report published on www.propertywire.com, private rental tenants value quality fixtures and fittings highly when considering rented properties in their search for quality rented accommodation in Bristol.
The full article and survey findings are available here.
According to the survey, 32% of tenants questioned have ended a tenancy early due to the poor quality of fixtures and fittings in a rented property.
Furthermore, the survey highlights that décor and quality fixtures are ranked as the most important influencer for tenants when deciding which rented property to choose.
Shabby, worn out, tired and poor quality fixtures and fittings are an area where Bristol landlords can easily and cost-effectively keep tenants happy with simple updates and improvements, and increase the loyalty of tenants in their rented property portfolio into the bargain.
Bristol landlords – why not take the Christmas period when student tenants are at home on holiday, to visit and review the state of fixtures and fittings in your rented properties in Bristol? It could pay benefits in the long term.
