How to be a Landlord
There are many topics to consider before being a landlord. Consider these points:
Are you intending to be a "Buy-to-Let" investor or are you an "Accidental Landlord"?
You may have recently inherited a property or you are finding it hard getting someone to buy your house. You could even be looking to invest your hard earned cash and widen your financial portfolio by joining the buy-to-let market.
Whatever the reason, due to the current housing market, the number of accidental landlords is on the increase and many are investing in buy-to-let properties.
The legislation on the private letting industry is complex and although many new landlords are successful and continue to expand portfolios, many find themselves in difficult and costly situations.
This guide is designed to ensure that you ask yourself the right questions before you are blind-sided by unconsidered costs and potentially contentious clients/tenants.
