Hi All

I'm a newbie here and getting my house ready to rent out (painting/decorating done, new carpet to be done shortly) after buying a new house with my partner at the end of March - just before they hiked the stamp duty for the purchase of second homes  :) The mortgage balance on my old house was paid off 2 years ago, so renting it out rather than selling seemed like the sensible option. As a first time landlord and also now living 65 miles away and working full-time, I'm intending to use a letting agent for the first 12 months at least. I work for a housing association so am all too familiar with the nightmare cases - property abandonments, voids, ASB and rent arrears. Not sure if using a letting agent will protect me from any of those nightmares but at least it will save me a fair bit of mileage and I've already used up nearly all my holiday entitlement...

The guide, blog articles and forum posts have been incredibly helpful - thank you!

Recently back in the UK having spent 6 years abroad managing lettings for out of country clients as well as some of my own and other family members.

Loving all of the information here, helping me to get up to speed with some of the UK issues and solutions.

Im a landlord on a small scale at the moment, only 2 houses in Northern UK. Looking to learn how to expand this, through a newly founded ltd company.

Good to see a great forum that may be a solid learning curve for me!

Any recommendations for specific areas/posts welcome!

Best regards N

I am not a landlord.  I started working in property for an online agent then moved onto property management before becoming an inventory clerk and have recently started my own company.

Guess I joined the site and enjoy debate.  Always interested to hear other people's stories and gain understanding of the industry via hearing the difficulties they are having.
