COMPLETE GUIDE TO LETTING PROPERTY
It has never been easier to buy property to let. Banks and building societies have recognized the growth market by introducing buy-to-let schemes, and this has led more people to consider becoming landlords. On the face of it letting property may seem a foolproof way of making money - you get an income plus capital gain on the property itself. Once a tenant moves in and starts paying rent all you have to do is sit back and watch the money roll in. But it's not quite as simple as that. Some properties rent more easily than others, you may get the tenant from hell and there may be periods when the property is not let at all. What happens then? This fully updated edition of "The Complete Guide to Letting Property" provides answers. A practical and comprehensive guide, it explains how to eliminate potential hazards and maximize your return on this type of investment. Solid information is interspersed with case studies, anecdotes and tips from experts. With the right care and guidance, becoming a landlord can be one of the easiest and most enjoyable means of earning extra money.
