All business is an exercise in reducing costs and maximising income and it’s absolutely essential for business owners, just as it is for landlords, so they seek to reduce their costs wherever they can.

Landlords: To Furnish or Not to Furnish?

As a new landlord, it can be tempting to leave properties void of furniture, fixtures and fittings to avoid letting properties furnished with substandard furniture. Since 1988 when the Furnishings and Fittings Regulations came into effect, even experienced landlords can now be reluctant to provide furnished properties. However, when you consider that a furnished property can let on average for over £50 a month more than an unfurnished one, it is easy to see why it might be worth putting in some time, effort and investment into furnishings to reap the rewards in the long term. Money Matters Before you can start considering changing your letting status to ‘furnished’ you need to make sure that you have the financial funds to back it up as well as the time and man power to practically ensure the furnishing gets done. Get some quotes from a range of different suppliers and work...

Calls for quicker evictions to help landlords and good reliable tenants

A swifter and more streamlined eviction process in the buy to let sector would encourage more landlords to enter the market and provide a greater choice of properties for reliable tenants looking for private rental accommodation, says Landlord Assist. The tenant eviction and rent recovery is backing calls for fast-track evictions amid speculations that the Government is planning to put measures in place to speed up the eviction process for private landlords following concerns that pressures on the courts are leading to lengthy delays. It is understood that landlords and some housing charities have been asked to attend a government working group to discuss proposals and possible options to speed up the eviction process for private landlords. For many landlords launching eviction proceedings against troublesome tenants can result in them going months without receiving any rent. Stories of possession claims taking between six and 12 months from start to finish...

Property Investment - how do I raise the finance?

It’s the $64,000 question when starting out in property investment.  How do I raise the finance to begin?  If you are starting from the privileged perspective of having a good chunk of capital or you are able to release equity from a property to work with when you begin to buy property then that is great.  It makes the process much easier from many angles.  It gives you the confidence to know that any offer you make is backed up by funds in the bank and therefore offers you greater bargaining power.  Coupled with the right knowledge and guidance, it also means that you can start your search sooner rather than later and get going on your chosen strategy. Starting from scratch? If, however, you are starting from scratch, then things can be altogether different.  In my opinion it all depends on your mindset.  If you are truly open to...
