Landlords and property owners! Are you considering ‘Rent to Rent’?

September 22, 2021

Rent to Rent

Renting property under ‘rent to rent’ schemes is increasingly popular:

  • Property owners like the idea of getting rental money without the hassle of dealing with tenants, and 
  • The ‘rent to rent’ landlord can run a landlord business without having the expense of purchasing a property

However, you need to be really careful.  Particularly if you are the property owner. 

After all, you have a valuable asset (your property) which your ‘rent to rent’ tenant wants to use to make money from.  Some are none too scrupulous about how they do this.

Although many ‘rent to rent’ schemes (particularly those provided by reputable letting agents) are very good, sadly others are not.  Property owners have been known to lose huge sums of money (and sometimes their property) and rack up substantial legal fees sorting things out.

The ‘Rent to Rent’ Training and Agreement

To help with this, last year we ran a special training day with solicitor David Smith and others from his firm.  As part of that event, David also prepared a special ‘rent to rent’ tenancy agreement which could be purchased by delegates.

Many of them have done so.

Initially, the agreement was only available to delegates on the training course, but due to popular demand, we have now decided to make it available as a ‘stand alone’ product.  

Although if you wish you can also purchase the training at a special price provided this is bought that the same time as the agreement.

Find out more on the information page linked below (which also features a short video clip where David discusses some of the issues that can arise with inappropriate tenancy documentation). 

Due to popular demand the #landlordlaw 'rent to rent' tenancy ageeement is now available as a stand alone product.
