Tenants are now renting for longer because of Mortgage deposits being so high and because of the rise of unemployment people are struggling to save money.

The ARLA (Association of residential letting agents) have recorded that tenants spend an average of 19.3 months in their rented homes – this has increased by 20% from 2009.

Landlords should keep all landlord insurance policies and other insurance they may have for their homes up to date. They should also keep up with property maintainance like carpets, curtains and any other fixtures and fittings.

It is advisable to have an inventory agreement between the landlord and tenant so there is an agreement in place to keep the property maintained.

The ARLA (Association of residential letting agents) are a professional self-regulating body who understands the requirements of the residential lettings market and give advice to landlords and tenants. You can become an ARLA member on their website (www.arla.co.uk), also on their website you can see all information on what tenants and landlords can do to work together to maintain a good relationship throughout the tenancy.
