Wifi for Landlords is the key to attracting and retaining tenants

If you choose to offer Internet it will be available to tenants immediately upon move-in. By offering Internet and WiFi, your access points will already be mounted and Ethernet ports pre-installed. Tenants will appreciate not having to book an appointment with an internet company and taking a day off from work to wait for the technician to arrive. Moving house while having a job can be one of the most stressful things, and providing broadband for tenants can relieve some of this stress. At least your tenants can watch Netflix or catch up with emails in the midst of packing boxes. Wi-Fi for Landlords is the key to success!

For many tenants, internet access is considered a ‘fourth utility’ after water, gas and electricity. This is due to the fact that most tenants are aged between 18 and 30. A demographic that has grown up using the internet and relying on it.  In addition to this more people than ever are working from home, including students who require connectivity to complete assignments. Providing broadband for tenants both attracts and retains this demographic who rely on Wi-Fi.

Wi-fi for landlords generates more revenue

As a Landlord or letting agent, you owe it yourself to explore providing broadband for tenants in your property. Wi-Fi set up is a one-time investment and the core infrastructure only needs to be installed once. The financial reward of wifi for Landlords far outweighs the risk. If the majority of your tenants are paying roughly £40 for their own internet service every month, times that by 12 months = £480. This is just for one tenant, you can see the potential.

Here at Landlord Broadband, you get everything in one bill, you don’t have to worry about several bills. Our wifi for landlords  is also a tax-deductible expense which means it’s actually cheaper than you think. If you manage multiple residences within a given area they can be grouped together on a secure, shared connection. This means you’ll only have one broadband set up to manage and one bill to pay for all those properties.

Differentiate yourself

Despite Internet and WiFi’s integral role in tenants’ everyday lives, there aren’t many properties that offer any type of WiFi or Internet service directly to their residents. Stand-out from the crowd! Value-added amenities are a critical factor in tenants decisions to let. Being one of the first to provide WiFi and Internet will contribute to the Pro vs Con list that separates your property from the one next door.

Having a managed wi-fi service means you never have to stress

According to accommodationforstudents.com, 96% of young UK professionals are frustrated by a lack of immediate Wi-Fi access when they move into a new property.  75% reported that they would be more inclined to rent a property that had pre-installed internet access. With us all they will need is a password, it’s as simple as that. We are aware that if you do provide the Wi-Fi there’s nothing worse than a tenant calling up at 3 am to complain about it not working. That’s why we have a 24-hour service to sort out your pain problems so you don’t have to. Lastly, we provide super-fast reliable broadband, which leaves us happy, you happy and most importantly your tenants happy.
