In our latest lettings article, we delve into the creation of a 'Landlord Emergency Kit', an essential toolkit for Thanet landlords, particularly vital during busy periods like Christmas. Being prepared for the unexpected is not just wise; it's a necessity in the world of property letting.

Landlord Christmas Checklist

  1. Spare Keys: Your First Line of Defense Locked-out tenants are a common issue. Having a set of backup keys in a secure yet accessible location can swiftly resolve such situations. Ensure duplicates for all property access points are included.
  2. Essential Contacts: Your Support Network Compile a comprehensive list of vital contacts, from tradespeople to emergency services. Having both a physical list and a digital backup, such as on your smartphone, is prudent.
  3. Basic Tool Kit: For Quick Fixes A fundamental toolkit can be a lifesaver for minor repairs. Stock it with essentials like a hammer, screwdrivers, a wrench, and pliers to address those unexpected maintenance tasks.
  4. Property Information Folder: Your Knowledge Hub Organize a folder containing critical information about your property. This should include details about utility shutoffs, insurance policies, and tenancy agreements. Keep both a physical copy and a digital version in the cloud for easy access.
  5. An Experienced Letting Agent: Your Crisis Manager In urgent scenarios, a skilled letting agent is invaluable. They can manage emergency situations, coordinate repairs swiftly, and liaise with tenants, allowing you to focus on resolving the larger issues. A good letting agent, like those at Cooke & Co, is equipped with the experience and contacts to ensure quick and reliable service.

For Thanet landlords, a well-stocked Landlord Emergency Kit and access to a competent letting agent like Cooke & Co, members of OEA, ARLA, NALS, and Safe Agent, means not just peace of mind but also instilling confidence in your tenants.
