How Can a Renter Hang Pictures without Risking Their Deposit Return?

Is this a Solution for an Age-Old Problem for UK Renters?

CatherineAsks Catherine Findlay, an International Relocation Expert with Saunders 1865 – The VIP Relocation Company.

It is, of course, totally normal for renters to want to hang pictures in their new UK rental home.

But the lease says you mustn’t damage the walls, right? So how’s that going to be possible without risking the return of your deposit?

Renters who don’t “make good” the damage caused to the landlord’s walls may face a large bill for putting the damage.  But you need to make the place feel like home.

Now, we’ve learnt about a new product from 3M which apparently allows tenants to hang pictures without causing any damage to the walls.  You can read about the product and watch a short video about it here

I must emphasize that so far we have no practical experience of using this product.  So we are keen to get feedback from renters who have tried it.  If any of your friends or colleagues might have tried it, do please share this info them. We’d like to get as much feedback as possible.  Please let us know your feedback, thoughts, email us at
