It is, however, important to remember that it must be viable to let the property. In order to make the most out of your property, it is vital that you choose a dynamic market where there is enough demand for your type of property. This article outlines 5 British cities which are attractive options where the rental market is thriving. Remember – research any area yourself before deciding to buy!

Published 26/04/17 | Accommodation | Spare Room

Between business trips and training events, businesses have many reasons to send their employees all over the country and even abroad. These trips can be costly even if they do count as business expenses. Renting a spare room can be a great way to reduce expenditure for businesses and allow employees a more homely, interesting experience when travelling for work.

They have to shell out for hotel rooms or apartment hotels by the night or week. The prices can quickly add up when using this type of accommodation, especially when travelling to expensive cities like London. There is also often a lack of appropriate or convenient options for employees, who may be forced to travel even while away to get to work. The advantages of renting a spare room Renting a spare room can be a great opportunity for businesses and employees to overcomes these restraints. Apart from the money saved, allowing businesses to...

How to prepare your room for your new tenant

Published 24/04/17 | Landlords | Tips for Landlords

Thinking of renting out your spare room to a lodger or student? Here are a few tips on how to prepare your room before they arrive. Things to think about before renting Before renting out your room, it is important to ensure that the room is big enough for the lodger or lodgers who wish to occupy it. Under the Housing Act of 1985, a room of less than 50 square ft (approximately 4.5m²) cannot be used as a bedroom and a room between 50 and 70 sq ft (approximately 6.5m²) is only half a bedroom. If you are a tenant you must consult with your landlord and is you are a mortgage holder you must inform your mortgage provider. Remember that if you rent to more than two people, your home will be considered a House in Multiple Occupation and therefore will be subject to different laws. Before welcoming your tenant, you should prepare a written agreement. This is not normally the same as a tenancy as they are technically a lodger – there is no fixed term...

Published 05/04/17 | Tenants | Tips for Tenants

A deposit, sometimes called a guarantee or damage deposit, is a sum of money collected by a landlord at the start of the tenancy for security against damage or non-payment of rent. It protects the landlord against damages or degradations in the property caused by the tenants and unpaid bills. A description of what the deposit covers should be provided by your landlord, whether in the tenancy agreement or another document. If you are affected by a dispute surrounding your deposit or the non-refund of your deposit, or you simply want to find out more about the regulations, here’s what you need to know.

These TDP schemes ensure that your rent is protected and that you get the full amount back at the end of the tenancy, provided that you meet the...
