Being a landlord isn't as simple as finding a tenant and taking rent. It's important to ensure that you're making an informed decision when deciding to rent out your house. Landlords are subject to many rules and regulations, and your property is valuable. A poor decision may be costly.

We've created a checklist to tick off some of those questions you might have, and give you a few more you may not have thought about. It's not an exhaustive list but it may help you avoid a costly mistake. We’d always recommend you seek legal or professional advice before entering into any kind of tenancy agreement.
