Whether you’ve just inherited a property, are planning to relocate abroad or just simply trying buy-to-let for the first time, the process of letting a property can be daunting.
The constantly evolving legal aspects of being a landlord mean there is a lot to take in. From learning about fire safety, immigration checks, tax issues, interior design, gas safety etc., the list is endless – you suddenly find yourself needing to be an expert on a lot of things you hadn’t even considered. Meanwhile, as you’re trying to assimilate it all, your property just standing empty earning you no income.
Kent Housing offers the best solution for first-time landlords, who aren’t sure where to begin. Whilst you could choose to go with a traditional letting agent, pay them a commission and management fees – leaving you out of pocket while the property you’ve spent your hard earned money refurbishing stays empty – you might discover that the figures just won’t stack up.
Maybe you’ve tried letting your property before and struggled with the day-to-day demands of tenants – the screening and checking then dealing with their requests and queries – sometimes at all hours. Perhaps you’ve been unlucky with a tenant who failed to pay their rent or damaged your home. Or, maybe you have a buy-to-let mortgage with monthly payments to meet and need the security of a fixed monthly income.
Kent Housing’s rent guarantee scheme is exactly what you need.
