Get your property looking up to date and ready to move into. Blinds are quick and easy to install, and are the best option for landlords in terms of being covered and classified in an inventory. For example cleaning curtains after a tenancy is time consuming, and difficult to quantify when charging from a tenancy deposit.
A blind is cheaper to buy, cheaper to install, a bolt on and off product, and if damaged due to the lower value of purchase and installation it is easier to just replace a blind and make an appropriate charge to the tenancy deposit. If you let a property without curtains or blinds, you are leaving a new tenant to install their own blinds. The idea of leaving tenants to drill holes in your walls and carry out their own D.I.Y. and then remove them when they leave your property, should not be considered and will cause un-necessary tenancy deposit disputes.

Great selection at B&Q at low prices including delivery straight to your rented property, We would recommend the Henry Hoover because they are robust and pick up large particles as well as dust. They work with or without a hoover bag so no excuses for your tenants. More expensive hoovers can break quite easily if they are used to pick up larger particles and are expensive to replace. The Henry Hoover is handy for landlords when they carry out D.I.Y projects at a property as they will pick up plaster dust, bits of scrapped off wallpaper, food items left behind fridges or cookers etc. No landlord should be without one!
