Remember this when you are thinking of selling your property our showing it to potential tenants or purchasers, make sure everything is up to scratch and in full working order, this goes from everything from heating to the roof. Give your house a good looking over and fix everything that needs to be fixed.
One suggestion is to get a full survey done, this will give you an overall picture of your property and let you know exactly what a potential buyer will see, and that way you know what is worth fixing and what is uneconomical to fix.
