Managing Your Rental Property

Unfortunately, being a landlord is an ongoing and active role. Despite popular belief, the “landlord’s circle of life” doesn’t just end after buying a property and finding tenants. That’s just a relatively early part of the complete circle.

Regardless of whether you use a letting agent or not, you will ALWAYS have an active role in managing your BTL property in some shape or form. For example, if urgent/major repairs need attention or if your property needs redecorating in-between tenancies– they’re just two examples out of a hundred which a landlord will need to manage.

This sections covers a very broad range of issues which can crop up when managing a BTL property, from the importance of landlord property inspections to the best practices for when dealing with tenants with pets.
