Just curious, do you guys provide quilts to a tenant moving into an HMO?
Thank you in advance all for your input
I have the following trend. People moving for 6+ months never need it or want it. Those who do short term AirBnB type (1-2 months) which we may occasionally take, require bedding. I usually offer to get it for an extra £80 for the whole set (pillows, duvets, sheets etc.). They often want it and then leave it behind, so I now have 2 sets I could use if I really need to. But it's rare.
I tend to find that people already in the UK have their own - if coming from abroad I provide it free but make it clear that it won't be new bedding, so after a while people usually get their own and return mine.
Does largely depend on what segment of the market you're targeting
DISCLAIMER just my personal opinion - for legal advice consult a qualified professional grown-up.
For around £35 per double bed, we supply all our new tennants with the bed ready made with new bed protector, sheet, quilt, quilt cover, pillows and pillow cases from Asda. We make it clear it is a gift, we don't wash them, replace them or want them back.Only on couple of occasions have they said they don't want them. This dresses the rooms nicely for viewings and projects a positive clean image of our property and the sorts of landlords we are. We do aim at professionals so IMHO money well spent.
I agree it’s helps dress the room. But it’s a cost I don’t need and that I don’t think comes back. So I dress the room for pictures but show the house with what’s actually there.
I personally don't supply duvets or bed sheets as I've always found that my tenants have always supplied al of there own
But yes also agree it dresses room nicely and if I was requested to supply duvets and bedding I would happily do so
I have never supplied these items, although, like JCL, I have always been open to negotiating such things with tenants as and when they ask for them.For instance, some tenants asked to keep two chickens in the back garden and I was able to agree to that. Another time, tenants asked to decorate a child's a room in the style of a nursery, and again, that was agreed by me.The more we can adapt to our tenants individual needs (within reason), and allow them to customise their rental home to their life and style, the longer our tenants will likely stay.

When I dress the rooms for HMO I always leave everything that was in the photos and viewings. Quilts lamps pictures etc
If the don't want them they give them back.
no. I really think this is something personal to the tenant.
