Advertising To Let Rooms In Your Flat

If you are advertising to let rooms in your home, flat or apartment. You must make sure that you have considered all of the possible implications and problems that may arise from sharing your home.

This can be an excellent way of increasing your income and helping to pay the rent or mortgage, but you will undoubtedly have to make some adjustments to your day to day routines.

These include been able to accept that sometimes there may be more things lying around than you have been used to, having to share parts of your home which you've always assumed to be private e.g. your bathroom, parking your car properly in the drive to make way for another car, and a host of other minor issues which derive from consideration for other people who you share living space with.

Your tenant will need to have some kind of cooking area available, even if they will only be making tea or using the microwave, this may be installed in their room (this is not health and safety conscious) or you may agree to share your own kitchen area. Similarly, access to bathroom facilities should be easy - you may want to agree on a rota to avoid disagreements and ill feelings.

Always ensure that there is adequate communication between the landlord and the tenant or the flatmates in a flat share ensuring that communication between house sharers is an essential part of communal living.

Most flat share short-term agreements are payable on a weekly basis, so remember that your tenant will not be obliged to give you notice when they move out. This can have implications for cleaning and redecoration costs as you are most likely to want to refresh the room every time you wish to take on new tenant.

If you do want to let rooms that are spare in your home, then consider using an internet site to advertise the accommodation. You will be able to place a listing easily and sometimes it can be free, potential tenants will be browsing the web from all over the UK and you will be reaching potential tenants who may not be interested in reading or have access to local papers.

You will also have the chance to show off your interior decorating skills and flair and if you feel so inclined, you can make a video showing not just the room you wish to let, but every other facet of your home which the new tenant or flatmate will be sharing.

A virtual tour of your home will save you hours of dashing around and showing your house to strangers and could even turn up the odd one or two people who will pay a deposit over the phone without an inspection.

Many jobs involve employees having to travel to a new area for short term contracts and these workers make ideal tenants, often they work all week and then return to their own home at the weekend.

Its fair to say that most people who wish to let rooms are looking for a short term agreement and this can be a huge bonus if you want to make sure you are not stuck with a disagreeable tenant.
