I was having a look at the RICS website today and I noticed that they have a lot of very useful free guides on their site. Ive highlighted two below which I think would be useful for property investors.
Letting a Property
This explains the basic legal and practical issues involved in letting a flat or house, giving you a checklist of the process you will go through:
- The process
- Agreeing the let
- Preparing your property to let
- Energy Performance Certificate
- Choosing a letting agent
- Landlords checklist
- Marketing your property
- Advantages of buying at auction
- Advantages of selling at auction
- Buying: Auction day
- Selling: Auction day
Property auctions have become increasingly popular with both buyers and sellers – whether theyre owners, occupiers, developers or investors.
There are a lot of other guides on there, so it may well be worth your while to go onto their website and have a look around: http://www.rics.org/consumerguides
Let me know if you find these resources useful.
