A Simple Guide for Overseas LandlordsV1-JC-20082015
Experience shows that landlords who let properties miles away from their home have particular difficulties keeping on top of what might be happening with their tenants. Landlords who live abroad and let properties in the UK are likely to encounter additional challenges.
Generally, these overseas landlords need to appoint a reliable letting agent or a trusted relative or friend to manage their properties. These plans should be made some months in advance of the landlord's move because it can take time to put all the plans in place. Such an agent will take all the headaches away from an overseas landlord by offering sound advice on how to manage the whole letting process in the most effective manner. When the property is let the tenancy agreement should not contain the overseas address of the landlord. The tenant must have an address in the UK where he/she can serve a notice of leaving on their landlord or the agent.
