Getting your rental property ready for a tenant!
Starting a tenancy off smoothly is always top of mind! Its important that we ensure the property is compliant, clean and ready for its new occupants to make it home!
The below is an extensive list of items, our team is able to assist with any you are unsure of and we also have a great team of tradespeople to assist should it be required.
