This is a real concern for many landlords. Will the tenant maintain the lawns, gardens and pool (if applicable) to our high standards?
This is one of our management roles that we are constantly focused on to ensure the internal and external of the property is well cared for. However, if you want added peace of mind, you may like to consider including lawn and pool care as an inclusion to the weekly rent and then engage a professional. It can be a win for the busy tenant and they may be more attracted to renting the property and you as the property owner will know that the outside of the property is being looked after.
