Four New Year’s Resolutions Landlords Will Love

Four New Year’s Resolutions Landlords Will Love

It’s 2022. A new year, new hopes and a new focus on getting rid of old ways of doing things that are holding us back.

Landlords are not immune to wanting a fresh start. January always sees us have plenty of enquiries from landlords keen to improve the way they do things.

Below are four resolutions we can help landlords make, but more importantly, keep.

 To make more money

This one is a balancing act. You want to be profitable without being mercenary. A popular way to improve your bottom line is to review your buy-to-let mortgage rates (when was the last time you did this?). You can also look at all your other costs, including insurance and maintenance plans and see if any savings can be made.

 To have less stress

Being a landlord is a fantastic way to build a passive income and lay solid financial foundations for your future. But it can be stressful if certain things aren’t in place. You have plenty of responsibilities and these can all add up over time. Working with an experienced letting agent can help you overcome any challenges and make your life easier.

 To get better tenants

This goes hand in hand with our thoughts on having less stress. A bad tenancy is a nightmare. The good news is when you work with an experienced letting agency, the risks of these are massively reduced. Rigorous referencing and cross-checking of prospective tenants are perhaps the most crucial tasks that need to be done, professionally, if you’re to get a better standard of tenant.

To stay safe and legal

We’ve mentioned that mountain of rules and responsibilities all landlords face. Falling foul of these are costly, stressful and in worst-case scenarios, can put you behind bars. Unfortunately, ignorance isn’t a defence when it comes to rental property law. By working with a letting agency that knows their stuff regarding the legal side of things, you are protecting yourself, your tenants and your investment.

If improving the way your rental properties perform in 2022 is a resolution you’re making, get in contact with us today and we’ll help you stick to it.

Whether you are selling, buying, letting or renting, we’re here to help. Call Jon and our team on 01276 539111 or email: enquiries@knightspropertyservices.com  for expert advice which is honest, accurate and informative.
