Well I have been renting out my portfolio for 20 years now .
Wales have produced leaflets for tenants which tells them 14days too . Tenants are contacted and they know the score . I have never been left with anything of value .Bags of old clothes ,kids broken toys ,broken furniture etc etc .
I have also claimed monies from Mydeposits with no problems
I let my properties with proper contracts and excellent inventories .I am on call to my tenants 24/7

I also rent out in Wales too and Rent Smart Wales use the 14day period. You then bill them if you need to pay for any removals .
Years ago it was 6months I remember well .
But always get inventory done on all items cause they may well decide at a later date that they left behind some very valuable items... Read More
