Beginners Guide to Being a BTL Landlord

If you’re thinking about becoming a buy-to-let (BTL) landlord, or have one property and feel expanding your investments and buying a second or third is right thing for you, then there are a few ways to ensure you’ve done your best to make a sound financial decision:

  • Thorough research to ensure you’re making the best financial decision for your needs
  • Selecting the right type of property for your preferred tenants – location/apartment or house/young professional or family
  • Crunch those numbers – make sure of rent levels, vacancy periods and any additional taxes and fees
  • The right type of management to suit you – manage the property yourself or engage a lettings agent to do it
  • Take time to examine any legal papers carefully – be it your BTL mortgage, a tenancy agreement or a lettings deal make sure you read all legal documents from cover to cover
