  • I would guess that you are looking to manage the property yourself, but are looking for ways to find a tenant. Most people looking for rented property will either looking in local newspapers or go onto websites such as rightmove or zoopla. You should be able to places a classified advert in the paper for a reasonably low cost, and there are also free to list websites available such as gumtree. In order to get your property listed in the most visited websites, such as rightmove and zoopla you will need to employ an agent on a tenant find only basis. Online Letting Agents offer the cheapest fees for this, starting from around £125+vat

  • I agree with the above. However, if you are an inexperienced landlord ensure that you read up on all of the legislation that you will be responsible for complying to. There are some hefty punishments if you forget to comply with something such as Gas Safety Regulations, or the Health and Safety at Work Etc Act and so on. Employing an agent on a tenant find only basis may be your best option if you are determined to manage the property your self, as they will have to ensure that things like the gas safety record are in place before moving a tenant in. They should also fully reference prospective tenants, and supply you with an assured shorthold tenancy agreement.

  • You will need to advertise, either local press or internet. You will be required by law to have an Energy Performance Certificate and when a tenant moves in a Gas safety Certificate and also you must registre a bond.
