Buy To Let Top 10 Tips

  1. Carefully compare property prices and rental potential in the area you are looking to invest. We can provide you with an independent area guide for Mid Bedfordshire.
  2. Before you buy a property check the letting potential with an independent, lettings specialist i.e. not a letting agency that is part of an estate agency (can have conflicting agendas).
  3. Buy properties that are easy to rent all year round.
  4. Only use letting agents that are members of the National Letting Approved Scheme (NALS). Our landlord ‘client accounts’ are independently audited annually to ensure your money is safe
  5. Ensure your property is well presented. We can arrange for a three bed makeover (redecorating/cleaning) which can be achieved very cheaply!
  6. Make sure you take out specialist lettings insurance which covers you for building, contents, malicious tenant damage, rent and legal expenses (including repossessions expenses) and arrears. Our comprehensive BELVOIR landlord insurance costs approximately £350 per year (average property).
