Dealing with difficult Tenants

A property with a problem tenant is the biggest risk facing landlords, as often it is a bigger liability to have a bad tenant than no tenant at all.

This is due to the fact that often problem tenants do not pay their rent & usually damage your property. Then follows the long drawn out process of the legal proceedings in order to gain possession of the property back from the problem tenant.

At Gatehouse Estates all of the tenants are fully referenced and in the event that you are unlucky enough to have a problem tenant they offer a rent guarantee & legal expenses policy which gives all landlords total peace of mind knowing a dedicated legal team are working to obtain vacant possession back from the problem tenant and handle the entire process. Plus the rent guarantee payment takes away the pressure of trying to fund the money to cover the mortgage payment supporting the investment.

Tax breaks for UK Landlords

Tax Breaks for UK Landlords.

Landlords could be eligible for a maximum tax break of £1,500 per property against the cost of installing draught proofing, loft insulation, or insulation for hot water systems. The Government are keen to encourage all home owners, including landlords, to improve the energy rating of their properties.

Most landlords are unaware that they can make this tax deductable improvement to their rented property. Furthermore, it will improve the property’s energy rating when they have to conform to the new EPC ( Energy Performance Certificate ) scheme that comes into force in October 2008. By improving the energy performance rating, the landlord is simply improving their chances of letting sooner, and for more rent. Savvy tenants will want to see the energy rating of the property to rent, before they agree to let. With the cost of energy rising seemingly weekly, this will become a major decision maker.

This tax break is called LESA, Landlord’s Energy Saving Allowance. Talk to your financial advisor for more information, or if you are local to our offices in Godmanchester, or Bedford, call in. Contact us
