An introduction to being a landlord

So you’ve decided to become a landlord! Maybe you’ve joined the ever-growing band of buy-to-let investors. Perhaps you’ve inherited a property – or moved in with a partner – or decided to work abroad for a few years, but want to hang on to your UK base.

The next step is to consider how best to manage your property, or properties. Your circumstances will probably dictate whether you choose to do this yourself or appoint an agent to do it on your behalf. If you’re working abroad, for example, you’re unlikely to be able to deal with routine issues personally. However, if you’re just around the corner from your tenants, it may be practical to try your hand at property management.
