More and more people are struggling to sell their homes and an increasing number of sellers are opting to let their property out as a result.
Inheriting a Home or moving in with a partner, are also examples of situations when people might find themselves becoming a Landlord without necessarily planning to be one.
However, with new research from Total Landlord Insurance revealing a staggering number of Landlords are unwittingly opening themselves to risk, now than ever before is the time to swat up on your tenancy agreements to make sure you don’t fall foul of a rogue tenant.
One thing is for sure it’s absolutely imperative that you have an official agreement in place, even if you are letting your property to someone you know socially. Do you find it hard to keep up with the changes in Landlord and Tenancy rights, which seem to be constantly evolving? What happens if you do have a tenant that is repeatedly having complaints of anti social behaviour brought against them? What rights do you have if you want to evict a tenant?
Watch our live and interactive webTV show where Eddie Hooker from Total Landlord Insurance and Marie Parris, Managing Director of George Ellis Property Services and author of forthcoming book ‘The Simplified Guide to Letting & Managing Your Own Property’, will answer these and any other Landlord queries you might have live, so that you know how to deal with troublesome tenants in a speedy and effective manner.
