First impressions count
When you’re trying to let your property, don’t underestimate the kerb appeal and first impressions your home should make. If your home is unappealing from the outside, you are less likely to entice prospective tenants inside. This also goes for the inside of your home; you should see viewings as showcasing your home rather than simply showing the space.
Lots of people make an instant judgment on a first impression. Just a few simple things can dramatically alter that first impression and get people through that front door.
Floor plans are an ideal way to convey quickly and accurately to prospective tenants the relative room/area size and features of a marketed property, to see at a glance the layout and potential development areas a property may
have. They are an ideal and necessary sales and marketing tool.
As the market becomes more of a renters arena, potential tenants demand more information before looking at a property. A floor plan can help raise your property above the rest, increasing its chances of finding a tenant. Let Right can give you the advantage you need by providing you with the highest quality floor plans.
360 virtual walkthroughs
We employ the use of a 360 virtual viewing feature which is fully interactive for the user and not a simple video of a property whereby a potential tenant cannot have a good look around the property. Tenants quite often like to gather as much information and get as much of a feel for a property as they can before booking a viewing and this feature offers that to them. Virtual viewings also streamline the whole process for a landlord. If a potential buyers’ interest drops after a virtual viewing, it is likely they would have dropped at some point in any case. However, if a potential buyer booked a viewing following a virtual viewing it means that they are going to the property with greater intent of offering.
The key benefits include:
- Greater buyer intent and better quality viewings.
- Saving vendors time, effort and money preparing their homes.
- Greater accessibility for potential buyers.
- Boost in online property portal views.
We understand that the home renting process can be daunting and making time to schedule property viewings can be tricky. That is why we are very flexible in making ourselves available for accompanied viewings.
We really do everything we can to make property viewings as easy and accessible as possible. We are not afraid to go that extra mile to showcase your property
Renting Homes (Wales) 2016 Act
Welsh Government have pushed back the implementation of the Renting Homes (Wales) 2016 Act from original date of the 15th July 2022. The act will now be implemented on 1st December 2022.
This will allow more time for landlords to complete the necessary preparations ahead of implementation. We will contact our clients with further updates in the coming weeks and update our blog series accordingly.
– Julie James (Welsh Gov Minister) “The biggest change to housing law in Wales for decades.”
The Welsh Government have announced that the long-awaited Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 will finally come into force on 1st December 2022.
The legislation introduces an array of changes to how landlords in Wales will have to operate, meaning only very few laws continue to be ‘shared’ with England.
Over the course of the next few weeks, we will go into greater detail on each of the Act’s headline changes and email newsletters will follow, which include;
- All private rented sector tenancies to be replaced by ‘occupation contracts’, where tenants become ‘contract-holders’. These contracts must include specifically-worded clauses. Existing tenancies must be converted to occupation contracts within six months.
- A property will be deemed unfit for human habitation if it doesn’t have a valid electrical safety certificate, a mains-wired interlinked smoke alarm system, and a carbon monoxide alarm in every room with a gas, oil or solid fuel burning appliance (including gas boilers).
- New minimum housing standards, which are covered by the 29 points in the new Fitness of Homes for Human Habitation (FFHH).

Energy performance certificates
An EPC is a certificate that shows in detail the energy performance of a
building. The certificate will give the properties an easy to understand
rating of its energy efficiency using a scale of A-G (A being the most
efficient and G being the least efficient) along with any
recommendations to improve the properties efficiency and save money
following an onsite survey carried out by an accredited Domestic
Energy Assessor (DEA).
It is a legal requirement for all rental accommodation to have a valid energy performance certificate (EPC) in place before it can be marketed to let and with a minmum rating of an E.
As more and more people are searching for properties online before they even step into an estate agents office, great photographs are increasingly becoming essential in marketing a house. A good photograph of a property will catch the eye of house-hunters instantly, whereas poorly lit, wonky pictures are off-putting and relegate a property to the ‘to look at later’ list.
At Let Right we will take high quality digital photographs for inclusion in the rental particulars and internet use, this will include various angles of sometimes the same room to fully expose your property. Our main goal is to showcase your property in a class of its own.

Rent Smart Wales
What is Rent Smart Wales?
Launched in November 2015, Rent Smart Wales is the product of the Welsh Government’s bid to “improve the image” of the private rented sector.
It puts a requirement on every landlord of a rented property in Wales to register with the scheme, while those who self-manage must also obtain a licence.
Landlords had 12 months to register with Rent Smart Wales and decide whether to apply for a licence or hand over management of their property to a licenced agent.
The Rent Smart Wales website contains a comprehensive Frequently Asked Questions section, but the scheme can be summarised as follows;
