This practical guide is packed with detailed information on rights and obligations, the ins and outs of dispute resolution, deposits, security, safety, taxation and mortgages, as well as energy performance certificates, tenancy deposit protection schemes, and Capital Gains Tax.
This new edition of Renting & Letting covers a breadth of properties, from company lets and holiday flats to student accommodation and multiple occupation lets. Drawing on many years of experience in property investment, Kate Faulkner gives clear advice on the possible pitfalls, explaining vital financial and legal considerations in an accessible, jargon-free manner. She describes what landlords and tenants should look for in a rental property, and what costs you will incur, as well as what additional resources you will need throughout your letting or renting experience, whether it's working out who will manage the let, or who to turn to if things go awry.
