What tenants want

Landlords need to understand what tenants want.
To this end I heartily recommend Rentergirl's blog at This award-winning blog chronicles the ups and (mainly) downs of renting in a new build development in Manchester.
A recent posting included the following insights into the mind of the tenant.

  • Kitchen/diners are logical, but could we have a separate lounge?

  • Could utility rooms be decreed compulsory?

  • A few inbuilt cupboards would change my life and rock my world.

  • Improved soundproofing, an end to communal post-rooms and secure main doors would be splendid

If I was looking at a buy-to-let property, especially in a new development, I'd think about those wishes. I'd rather have happy tenants who stay.
