If you’re looking to buy a gift this Christmas for a friend or family member to help them in their career as a landlord, you may find our suggestions useful!
Their needs and wants can change depending on the nature of their portfolio. However, we’ve put together a list of gifts to buy a landlord that will hopefully appeal to all.
A tablet computer
Having a tablet computer can be handy for a number of reasons when letting a property:
- During the check-in process, you can keep the inventory on the tablet and have new tenants sign it digitally
- You can keep tenancy agreements on a tablet, again having tenants sign the contracts digitally
- When connected to the internet you will have access to your emails
- You can add important events and appointments to the calendar on a tablet and set up reminder notifications
- You can also keep an interactive checklist on there for periodic inspections
As tablets have a larger screen size than smartphones but are more portable than a laptop, this can make them more suitable for such tasks.
Membership for a landlord association
You can research local or national landlord associations and pay for a year’s subscription. This might help a landlord explore the benefits of such a membership, which can include support, resources, and networking opportunities.
Vouchers for a hardware store
If they like to keep on top of maintenance tasks personally, a voucher for a hardware store might be appreciated. Whether it’s tools, paint or furniture they need, some stores can provide a range of supplies.
For landlords working with a tight budget, this could really put a smile on their face!
A spa visit
As thoughtful as it is to choose practical gifts, at the end of a busy year a gift unrelated to work can be what most people long for!
Give them the gift of a weekend off. Time away from the to-do list can be a refreshing treat that many people don’t often give to themselves.
Finding the ideal Christmas gifts to buy a landlord doesn’t have to be difficult. You may not be able to guarantee them a stress-free Christmas, but a thoughtful gift will hopefully make them smile this festive period!
