A general buy-to-let checklist to be used as initial guidance before entry into this investment market. This document allows you to print out a list of aspects to consider in a hard copy and then as you attend to each aspect it can be checked off the list. The document also provides a basic budget and profitability calculator for your proposed buy-to-let property. Please note that this document can only be used in respect of a property in England, Wales or Northern Ireland.
This document should be used by landlords of a residential property to create a fixed-term assured shorthold tenancy agreement. Specific clauses are included to cover gas, electrical and fire safety and building maintenance. It is suitable for both regular lettings and Houses in Multiple Occupancy (HMO). The document deals with a landlord's requirement to use a Government-authorised Tenancy Deposit Protection scheme. Please note that this document can only be used in England & Wales and the total rent payable should be less than £100,000 per year.
Use this letter to request a reference from a referee whose details have been supplied by a prospective tenant. The references should be obtained from a previous landlord, a previous secured lender, an employer, a bank or a building society.
Use this document to meet your legal requirements after taking a deposit from a tenant. It tells tenants which deposit protection scheme is used and, together with the scheme documents that must be provided with this notice, gives them the 'prescribed information' required by law. Protect the deposit and give this notice and the scheme documents to the tenant within 30 days of the tenant paying the deposit. At the same time, you should also send it (together with the scheme documents) to anyone who paid the deposit for the tenant and, in order to avoid any dispute, the tenant's guarantors (if any). This document is suitable for tenancies in England & Wales.
As a landlord (or licensor), you'll inevitably collect, use and store personal information about your tenants or licensees. Under the Data Protection Act 2018 and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you need to tell them what information you hold, how you'll use it and for what purpose. You also need to tell them about their privacy rights and how the law protects them. You can use this privacy notice to do this. It's suitable for landlords of residential or commercial property.
