How do you sell your home? Advertise. Spread the word, the more eyes that can see your property the more likely, and the sooner, a successful transaction will occur. Assuming the home has been staged, de-cluttered, and pictures have been taken with a panoramic view you’re ready to advertise. Here’s how:
So congratulations, you have bought your first buy to let property! Now you have to fill it with tenants.
Assuming you wish to manage the property yourself, one of the first questions will be, “How do I advertise this property to maximise its potential?”

Winning a place at a UK university is a fantastic achievement and one you should be proud of. But, with university halls often filling up quickly, many students need to look at the private student rental sector for their accommodation.
There is good reason to try and get your tenants to appoint a Rent Guarantor.
And that is to make sure you get paid your rent, even if the tenant defaults and wont/cannot pay. It’s a way of guaranteeing your rental income, and that’s good news.
If you’re a new landlord, you might find yourself feeling overwhelmed by the amount of work and detail involved in managing your buy-to-let investment. Even experienced landlords often wish they had more free time, and may have had negative experiences of letting agents who made business more complicated in the past.
Finding a property to rent can be frustrating, time-consuming - and expensive. As regulations for landlords in the UK become tighter, tenants find themselves under pressure to fulfil increasing financial demands.
Going off to university or college is an exciting time for many reasons; not least the fact that, for many, its the first step toward independence as you spread your wings and move away from home for the first time. Although there’s lots to look forward to, one of the first obstacles, unless you’re lucky enough to have millionaire parents, is figuring out where you’re going to live while away from home.
Buy-to-let has always been an accessible way to invest with potential for short and long term returns, but managing a rental property seems to become more complicated every year. For many people, the idea of being a landlord directly responsible for tenants is overwhelming, but others relish the idea of getting stuck in to their own business.

One of the biggest issues for you as a landlord is likely to be whether your tenants pay the rent on time, or indeed, if they pay at all. There are ways to solve this problem, a common one being to demand 6-12 months’ rent in advance.
This isolates those who cannot afford to pay such a large lump sum, however, and subsequently limits your market. So what else can you do to ensure you receive your rent on time, and help your business thrive?
