Guaranteed Rent London Timely tips for first-time landlords

Guaranteed Rent London Timely tips for first-time landlords

Guaranteed Rent London
Real estate specialist, Knight Frank, is expecting UK property

prices to fall 5% this year, and the prospect of a new batch of

forced landlords entering the private rental market has prompted

the National Landlords’ Association (NLA) to issue some timely

tips for first-time landlords.

Homeowners-cum-landlords need to comply with a raft of regulation

but the NLA has highlighted the following essentials:

Provide a proper tenancy agreement, usually an Assured Shorthold

Tenancy agreement that you and the tenant sign – this will

outline the length of the tenancy, amount of rent, when it is to

be paid, and deposit details.

Protect the tenant’s deposit with a government-authorised scheme,

such as mydeposits.

Create an inventory describing the condition of the property in

detail, along with the furnishings.

Have gas appliances checked annually by a Gas Safe registered

engineer and provide the tenant with a Gas Safety Certificate.

Take out comprehensive landlord insurance to protect your

property.

Ensure urgent repairs are fixed promptly and use reputable

tradesmen that you know and can trust to tend to the property at

short notice.

NLA chairman, David Salusbury, comments: “There are currently a

record number of people searching for rental properties, meaning

would-be landlords would have no problem finding a tenant.”

He adds: “Letting a property can be a rewarding experience and an

effective way of providing additional income, but prospective

landlords will need to remember they are effectively starting a

small business.”
