 Landlord tip
 How about a welcome pack for new tenants. This may include..

  • Photocopies or printouts on how to use supplied whiteware. These are easily found on the internet to download.
  • Two sets of keys, perhaps colour coded.
  • A handbook. This need only to be a finished A5 booklet, or simply print the pages in A4 then top corner staple. Information may include; a welcome blurb, property manager  details, current utility companies details, rubbish collection day, emergency maintenance suppliers.  
  • Place all the contents into a clear zip pocket for a professional look.
