Landlords- electric shower or thermostatic mixer?

There are many different types of shower systems: these are electric, digital, water saving airdrop and power showers as well as thermostatic showers and your normal mixer showers. You might also like to consider the different functionalities of your shower system as many shower handsets and heads can be single or multifunctional.

Thermostatic showers

They give you a choice. A choice of temperature. Even if othr taps are used in the house. And for some of us, that is REALLY REALLY important. Especially if you have that long thick hair. Even as a man.

This works really well if you have a hot water supply. If you have a really large boiler, this might be your best choice. If you don’t, then don’t even think about it.

Thermostatic showers can be deck mounted for use in a shower bath or work as part of a concealed or exposed unit. This is a bit hard to do, but nothing which cannot be done by a plumber.

Electric showers

They catch water from the cold supply, so you will never be left without hot water if you have a small boiler.

They can be used at any type of home, are easier to install and don’t depend on the plumbing system.

Also, if you want hot water in under a minute, electric showers are the best. They can heat the water instantly.

BEST letting agent. How to tell the one that is right for you

There are thousands and thousands of “best” letting agents on the market. Too many? Never. With the market increasing each day and each minute, it is important to have the best letting agent for you. So what makes your letting agent be the one for you?

First, he has to be compliant with all the regulations and laws.

A BBC investigation found that in 2016, letting agents helped themselves to more than £1m from tenants’ deposit schemes – leaving landlords without protection for their investment. The problem appears to be growing with The Property Reporter finding in the first few months of 2018, £750,000 has already been stolen by crooked letting agents.

Everything they do must be for your own safety.

Including the deposit protection schemes. Because this is a relationship of trust. And trust needs to be earned. However, that’s not enough if you do want the best letting agent…

Every agent will maybe start with only or almost every good intention for you. Find you a great house, at a great price. That is, if they care at all. Will you trust them that they will show you everything they got? Hopefully.

They need to prove to you that they are protecting you. This is why they need to know the Law. They need to know and read every new piece of article that comes out so that they are able to find what works best for you. Furthermore, they need to find the best way to protect your deposit, the rights that you have, and also help you have the best and most comfy landlord-renter relationship.

Because that’s what we do. We help each other. We help you make a house into a home, and help your landlord have a family for their beloved house.

Let us know in the comments what you think about this!

How can you maintain a good landlord versus tenant relationship?

For both parties should aware the relevant letting regulations is a starting point.Sign a proper tenancy agreement.

Register the deposit in a 3rd party.

Tenants, understand tenants’ obligations. Landlords, understand landlords’ obligations

Be more positive, write in the contract everything that you feel will protect both of you.

What can you do if the tenant stops paying rent?

What can you do if the tenant stops paying rent? Well, it is quite rare for a tenant who stop paying rent completely. But we got tenants who pay rent in arrears. f a tenant fails to pay by the rent due date, Co&Co property management will do our best to contact the tenant by either telephone or email and if payment has not been received within 7 days of the due date, Co&Co property management will issue a chasing letter to the tenant. A copy of this letter will be sent to the Landlord by email.

Why Landlords Don’t Allow Pets

Why Landlords Don’t Allow Pets
HEY, don’t get us wrong, we all love pets, landlords do too! However, after years and years of finding destroyed expensive rugs and a not-that-great smell, they have all reasons to say no to this.

Dogs and cats are incredibly independent animals and it’s really easy to become messy or frustrated. This leads to poor hygiene and of course, additional costs for both owners and landlords.

What can we do to avoid this situation? Either: have a chat with your landlord and prove that your are a responsible pet owner, or have a good reference from your old landlord. Most landlords would not resist a good reference for a fluffy fellow.

What most people forget to do before renting an apartment

  • Firstly, make sure you can afford it!
  • ALWAYS see the flat first and make sure it is like advertised online.
  • Try to get to know the neighbourhood before you move in. You can get very helpful advice or insights from your soon-to-be neighbours. Also you could make some new friends!
  • Consider the traffic around you, or if you don’t have a car, check the bus timetable.
  • Try to get hold of the ex-renter. You can find useful information such as the exact bills, any noisy neighbours, any nice restaurants nearby.
  • Check ALL faucets, toilets, cabinets and the shower, heater.
    Last but not least, ALWAYS.TAKE.PHOTOS. ALWAYS!
