How can I successfully rent out my property?
Are you interested in renting out your home? Are you planning to rent out your home or an investment property to expats or international employees? If so, rental laws can be extensive and complicated, which makes good preparation crucial. As a landlord, you should be aware of the available options and, perhaps even more importantly, understand your rights, duties and limitations as a proprietor.
One of the core values of ZUID Beheer is transparency, which means we provide clear and concise information to relieve the burden on landlords. At ZUID you can count on the advice and support of a personal real estate advisor who will guide you through the rental process.
What can ZUID do for you?
Personal consultation (information & advice)
If you are planning to rent out your property, ZUID Beheer will take the time to get to know you personally and to explain our method and approach. We would be happy to discuss the possibilities during an introductory phone consultation. We can then schedule a follow-up appointment at your rental property or at our office.
An introductory meeting on location gives our real estate advisor the opportunity to assess the property, provide you with accurate information and determine the rental price based on the market value. The following questions will be discussed:
- What is the current market status and what is a fair rental price according to the market value?
- What kinds of tenants will your property attract?
- What are the contact options?
- What is the applicable rental legislation?
- What is ZUID Beheer’s screening protocol for prospective tenants?
- What can ZUID do for you?
You will also have the opportunity to ask questions of your own.
Writing advertising copy
Based on the assessment report, the ZUID team will write an engaging advertising text for the online property presentation. We will publish photos and a concise description on the ZUID Beheer website and on several other relevant rental sites.
We will also share your property with our extensive network of rental agencies, relocation agencies and international companies in the Brainport region to ensure it reaches the desired target group.
Arranging professional photos
ZUID Beheer works closely with professional photographers and videographers. Professional photos of the interior and exterior ensure a stronger online presentation and advertisement and make your property more attractive to potential tenants. Photos are an excellent investment for the next five years.
Finding and selecting tenants
When selecting potential tenants, we always take into account family composition and the applicable income requirements.
If a potential tenant expresses interest in your property, your ZUID real estate advisor will make an appointment for a viewing. This is the best way to give tenants the right impression of your property. If the tenant is interested in renting the property, we will request all necessary documents and then contact you to discuss the candidate.
Drawing up rental contracts
After receiving the rights documents, the rental contract can be drawn up. ZUID Beheer uses a standard contract template approved by a tenancy law attorney and used by default for drafting all rental agreements.
Key transfer and initial inspection
Once the contract has been signed, we arrange for the transfer of keys. Before the transfer, your ZUID real estate advisor will conduct an extensive inspection of the property, which includes taking photographs, taking meter readings and drafting a detailed inspection report. Congratulations! You have now successfully rented out your property!
