A good relationship with your landlord is key 

Developing a positive relationship with your landlord has many benefits.

By communicating clearly and abiding by your tenancy agreement, your landlord is more likely to trust you to remain in their property.  
 
In turn, this should encourage them to make your tenancy as comfortable as possible, especially if they want to provide a secure, long-term let. Here are a few ways to set off on the right foot.  
 
First impressions count 
Your first meeting with your new landlord is an excellent opportunity to establish a good rapport. Even if you’re feeling anxious or have questions to ask, being polite and friendly will make discussing any issues or concerns easier for all parties.  
 
Keep your end of the deal 
Landlords often feel overwhelmed by the process of managing their lets.* By taking good care of your landlord’s property and paying rent on time, you’ll quickly become a valuable asset. And with less to worry about, your landlord is more likely to respond promptly and fairly if any problems arise down the line. 
 
Part on good terms 
Don’t leave your landlord in the lurch when it’s time to move on. Giving a few months’ notice before your contract expires will be much appreciated. If you can recommend an equally reliable tenant, even better. Tying up any loose ends should also be dealt with as professionally as possible to help you secure a favourable reference if required.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
