How can I protect my investment?

With some experts predicting last month that rising rents could lead to more arrears and with the financial world still looking shaky it would appear that these forces may have an affect on the buy-to-let sector.

Can you afford to lose rental income in this economic climate and how do you protect yourself and your investment from such external forces?

Tenant Referencing

Tenant Referencing is the first line of defence in protecting your investment from uncertainty.

There is no arguing that the housing market is currently in the Landlord's favour with potential tenants scrambling to rent properties; in order to sort the wheat from the chaff it is important you carry out comprehensive tenant checks. Once the tenants are in your property it can be extremely difficult to get them back out again if they are problematic. We've heard plenty of horror stories from landlords who did not carry out the proper checks beforehand.
