When renting, you garden smart. Why? Firstly, because renting restricts how much you may be able to do to the grounds, depending on what is stipulated in the lease agreement drawn up between you and your landlord and what your relationship is like with your landlord. The TDS guide states: „Unless a landlord has employed a gardener, tenants will normally be responsible for maintaining the garden. This includes cutting lawns, weeding flower beds and sweeping up grass cuttings and dead leaves. It can include pruning bushes and shrubs but the tenant should confirm this with the agent/landlord beforehand. A tenant may face deductions from their tenancy deposit if the garden is untidy and is not returned in a similar condition as at the start of the tenancy. The tenant is not responsible for seasonal variations (e.g. less green growth and flowers in winter)”.
2020 – a very bizarre, challenging, and unprecedented year. A year that was not easy. We are all faced with the challenge of being more adaptive, and even more proactive.
Thinking of going paperless? Maybe not a new idea. But in light of COVID-19, it’s a great time to reconsider it. More and more businesses are moving towards a paperless workplace nowadays. Minimizing physical contact is definitely a mandate in most businesses right now. By developing a modern, contactless system you won’t just optimise business recovery, but might ultimately save lives.
Everyone’s actions have helped to reduce the transmission of coronavirus in our communities. The most important thing we can do in the fight against coronavirus is to stay alert, control the virus, and in doing so, save lives. As part of the national effort to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak, it is essential that tenants, landlords, and local authorities continue to work together to keep rented properties a safe and decent place to live. It is in the best interests of both landlords and tenants to ensure that properties are kept free from hazards and in good condition. Tenants should inform their landlords early if there is an issue and landlords should take immediately the appropriate action.
More often than not, the most obvious ways to turn a profit are also the most lucrative. In this instance, what we are talking about is increasing the value of your property by making home improvements. Something as simple as upgrading your heating system or adding an extra bathroom could see you tens of thousands of pounds richer. The simple way to add value to your home is to extend or improve your home without spending too much money. In general, if you're trying to add value to your home, always ask yourself this question: will the value of my house go up by more than the cost of the improvement?
