Having your property unoccupied between tenancies can be a landlord's most expensive time. There's no rent coming in, possibly Council tax to pay and, in the winter the heating will need to be on to safeguard the property.
Simply Let tries hard to minimise void periods: We require outgoing tenants to give us two months' notice to allow ample time to market your property. We maintain a list of tenants looking for properties and we follow up tenant enquiries keenly. The property websites we use have a tenant match function which automatically alerts tenants who register with such sites whenever Simply Let posts a new property matching their requirements.
It is sensible however to allow a few days between tenancies for practicalities such as dealing with any redecoration or repairs and to allow time to prepare a comprehensive inventory.
