In short, I’m sick of a real estate agent managing my property. Each month I pay them to do practically nothing except take the tenants money, take their cut and other expenses and put the little money remaining in my account.
I had to move in with my carer as I am too unwell to take care of myself and don’t claim any benefits so I rely on the money from the rent and need every spare cent I can get my hands on.
The tenants have just signed a six-month lease as they want to buy at the end of the lease (even though I wanted a 12 month lease, I was pushed into it) and in these six months I want to learn all I can about how to effectively manage my own property.
It also looks like I am going to have to start from scratch and find new tenants too, so I’ll need advice on that also please.
I’m after tips, tricks, links, templates for leases, practically anything to get me started on how to do this. I worked hard for my house and it seems to not be worth it renting it out.
Anyone have any suggestions to get me started and help me out please?
Thank you very much all!
