The Complete Guide to Letting Property: Including Information on Buy-to-let, HIPs and Tenancy Deposit Schemes by Liz Hodgkinson
That this best-selling book is now in its sixth edition proves what a popular choice letting property has become. With an increasing number of people choosing to invest in property rather than pensions (according to The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors), fewer first-time buyers, and banks and building societies offering buy-to-let schemes the buy-to-let sector is continuing to expand: 12% of all housing stock is now in the private renting sector. This fully revised and expanded edition includes all you need to know on the new 2006 housing rules and provides reliable advice on all aspects of becoming a landlord. It advises on the pitfalls and the advantages of letting property, as well as how to choose the right type of property and how to calculate the finances. Interspersed with case studies and tips from experts, this book is a must read for anyone considering letting a property.
