So I have agreed on my first tenant. Before I can agree to the deposit I need to arrange a checkin date. Currently I have an AirBNB guest in the house who won’t check out until Saturday 3rd of April.
I am going to leave the house furnished. However need to pack and put everything else into storage.
My house is in Reading and I shall me living and working close to central london.
My house is an average sized 2 bedroom mid terraced house.
A few questions as I am new to being a land lord however I have done a fair amout of research.
First of all I will try to declutter the house the best I can and throw away stuff I don’t need.
Next I will need to box eveything else up and put it into a storage unit near to where I will be living near isle of dogs london.
I already have had a few quotes for storage (40 Sqfoot) do we think that would be enought storage space? ( I know that is a bit of an open ended question, i’m a single guy with no pets ).
Can I put a clause in the contract to state that I may use my atic and or 12foot by 6foot shed for storage?
Do you think it is worth paing for a company to itimise everything before they pack it up?
Some storage companies offer to collect storage do you think that is a good idea?
Can someone recommend a good cardboard box retailer? is double walled boxes a minimum?
Is 2.5 days enough for one person to pack a house this size?
