Whether or not to furnish a rental property…

Furnished or Unfurnished? You decide whether or not to furnish a rental property.

All properties should usually include carpets and curtains.

Furnished properties will also include the furniture found in most homes (beds, tables, chairs, suites), cooker and fridge, kitchen crockery, cooking utensils and cutlery.

However, unfurnished properties are advised to include white goods in the kitchen to appeal to a wider audience. Better presentation and quality of the property and furnishings will be reflected in the monthly rental achievable.

Linen and towels are not normally included even in a fully furnished property, and we would strongly advise against leaving a Television, DVD Player, Hi-Fi Equipment etc, other than in executive lets.

A major consideration for Landlords who have a choice whether to let a property furnished or unfurnished, is that there are Regulations, which must be adhered to specifically on furnished properties.
