Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

I’ve just exchanged on my first Buy to Let and as I’ve got some work to do on the property in advance of letting it I thought I’d ask fellow members what tips they’ve acquired over the years for ‘tenant proofing’ their properties in the hope that I might incorporate some of the precautions at this stage.
I’ve read a few good ones on this wonderful site that were part of other threads, for example putting lino in the bathroom that goes up the wall edges (like they do in hospitals) to help reduce the damage from leaks etc. Another tip was installing a humidity extractor that comes on at certain humidity and can’t be switched off by a tenant who wants to save on electric!
I remember reading a thread about a compacting toilet that was switched off by the tenant and there was a cautionary piece of advice in there for landlords but as I’m about to go to lunch I don’t fancy re-reading that particular thread right now !! 😉
Thanks in advance
