Furnishing Your Rental Property

30th Oct 2019

Category: Property advice

We are often asked by landlords whether they should furnish their property, or leave it unfurnished. As you might imagine, our answer is it depends!

In the landlord toolkit we explain a few principles that will allow you to make the best decision as to whether to furnish your property or not.

You need to consider whether it makes financial sense to furnish your property rather than leaving it unfurnished given the initial outlay to purchase furniture. Ultimately this question will be answered by the type of rental property you have, and the type of tenant you are likely to attract.

If you do decide to furnish your property, it is worth bearing in mind that all upholstered furniture complies with the Furniture & Furnishings Fire Safety Regulations 1988. Therefore, any soft furnishings that you put into your property will need to carry the relevant fire safety labels. In addition, it becomes the landlord’s responsibility to repair or replace any item that they provide the tenant for their use. This extends to furniture, furnishings and appliances.
