Landlords Guide

Interested in renting your property in Barbados but not sure where to start? It's so much more than just installing a for rent sign on your front lawn.

Do you have time to open up the property and meet viewers for showings? Pay out loads of money in advertising? If you answered no to the two mentioned questions, you should definitely hire a reputable real estate agent.

Make sure you provide accurate property details to your real estate agent including any restrictions that you may set for the property.

To get your property rented quick, the property must be in great condition for showings, clean and if any maintenance issues are found, fix them! Think of yourself as a renter looking for a home, do a walk through the property and fix any snags that you noticed.

Provision for utility services should be available for modern services, telephone, internet, water, electricity, gas and cable tv.

Contact the company who cover your property's insurance and let them know that you are renting your property out long term.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to list my property with only one real estate agent?

No but we do recommend that you make sure that all the real estate agents you hire are marketing the same list price.

Where will my property be marketed?

Internet portals, newspapers, magazines and for rent signage. 

What duration is considered as a long term rental?

One year. 

What is your fee for renting my home to a long term tenant?

One month's rent plus VAT.

My property is furnished, do I have to record all items in the property?

Yes. An inventory should be done and signed off by both the landlord and tenant before the tenancy starts.

Do you have clients in your database looking for a property like mine?

We have quite a huge database but it all depends on who’s looking for a property at the time.

Will viewers be accompanied by a real estate agent at showings?

Always!

Can I attend showings with my real estate agent and their client(s)?

We recommend no. Clients tend not to express themselves fully when the property owner is around. 

I don't have a rental agreement, do I have to hire an attorney to draft one or could the real estate agent provide a rental agreement?

We do have a rental agreement that we use which was drafted by a Barbados registered attorney.
