Advertising a New Let
My question is, when would be the best time to advertise the property for rent? I know this seems a basic question but if we advertise too soon we wouldn't be in a position to show anyone round or at least it wouldn't be in a state for them to perhaps make a decision on.
Also, from everyone else's experience, is the letting process usually a lengthy one in terms of credit checks, sorting application forms and tenancy agreements such that we do need to get the ball rolling quite soon. I appreciate that this will depend on circumstances but a best/ worst case scenario would be very helpful to know.
