Whether the property is furnished or unfurnished it is important that all furniture is fire resistant and that all guidelines are met. The furniture and furnishing (fire and safety) Amendment Regulation 1993 is that furniture made before 1988 is unlikely to meet the standards and should be replaced for another up to date furniture.
However it all depends on whether you as a landlord are prepared to buy furniture whether it’s brand new or second hand and also depending on which type of tenants you attract. By this we mean some tenants prefer to bring their own furnishing into the property.
Although some landlords do prefer not to have some properties furnished it is important to make a good first impression to the property. So either if the property is not fully furnished the property should contain basic essentials such as carpets and curtains.
Furnished – Property provides the most needed furniture in all rooms and may have some domestic appliances
Unfurnished – Property does not have any furniture and tenants will need to provide with their own.
Fully Furnished – Property includes everything you might find in a home including bedding.
