    Best Flooring?

    Hi All,
    Any advice on wood/wood effect flooring for a rental flat?
    I'm looking for something as durable as possible but of course need to also weigh up cost.
    Thanks as always,

    What do your lease deeds say about flooring: Carpet perhaps??
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

            Are you sure about that, even if you own the FH there is likely a lease involved.

            Wooden floors in flats can cause huge noise problems with neighbouring properties, particularly downstairs. This forum is full of related posts.

                  Firstly, I'd brush up on the differences between the flat and the freehold.

                  Secondly, if you want wood look flooring for a rental then - assuming it's not the high end of the market - cheap laminate. Click fix type at least 8mm thick. If the tenant takes care of the place then it'll last for ages and if they don't then it'll be cheap to replace come change of tenant.
                  There is always scope for misinterpretation.

                  If my posts can be interpreted in two ways, one that makes you feel angry and one that doesn't, I meant the latter.

                  Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new.

                    I agree. Real wood floors in rental properties usually end up pitted by hundreds of marks from stiletto heels. For some reason, when people do not actually own a floor, they seem to take less care of it than the person who paid for it and perhaps installed it.
