Deposit protection experts, mydeposits in partnership with Total Landlord Insurance have created a Landlord Lifecycle Guide and video that identifies the essential topics for landlords letting property as well as helpful tips and advice from experts.
The guide is free to download from the mydeposits England and Wales website and covers eight chapters which are essential for ensuring that tenancies run smoothly.
With the help of experienced landlords the handbook outlines important factors whilst providing best practice advice.
Chapters covered in the guide include getting the right insurance, preparing your property, marketing your property, carrying out tenant checks, carrying out an inventory, protecting the deposit, managing your property and vacating the property.
mydeposits CEO Eddie Hooker says the handbook and video is a must for even the most experienced of landlords.
“We made sure that the handbook is perfect for any landlord and the content has been compiled with one of London’s most experienced landlords who has been through it all. It’s a must watch.
“How to protect a tenants deposit along with carrying out a detailed inventory, getting the right insurance and much more is all included in the handbook.
“There’s over 50 Acts of Parliament and more than 70 sets of regulations governing the private-rented sector and the consequences of not knowing or understanding them can be disastrous for landlords, which is why the Landlord Lifecycle Guide is essential.”
The free guide is available right away from the mydeposits website and available to all landlords and letting agents.
