Our key partner and buy-to-let specialist, Hamilton Fraser, and renown industry expert, Paul Shamplina have released the second episode in their new series of podcasts designed to help educate landlords within the private rented sector and better manage their lettings.
Dealing with bad tenants
In the second episode of “Landlords, Lettings & Deposits” Paul Shamplina chats with the Head of Redress at the Property Redress Scheme, Sean Hooker, about dealing with bad tenants.
The Property Redress Scheme is one of three government authorised consumer redress schemes operating in the private rented sector.
What the podcast covers
Paul and Sean talk about problem tenants and what this means for a tenancy. In this podcast, they cover:
- – Preventing bad tenants from entering your property
- – Issues that can arise from renting to problem tenants
- – The importance of background checks on potential tenants
- – Tenant Eviction, Section 8s and Section 21s
- – How to deal with rental arrears
Whilst a very small number of landlords will ever experience a ‘bad tenant’, it pays to be aware of how to deal with these situations should they arise. Staying vigilant and up to date on the latest legislation can save you a lot of money, time and stress.
