Just wondering about what the legal implications would be of employing someone for, say 20 hours a week – I’m thinking it would be best if they had self-employed status?
I’m not sure exactly what I would want them to do yet as the work is often ad hoc. It could include conducting viewings and issuing tenancy agreements (after properly inducting them into this and using the agreements I currently use from the Guild of Residential Landlords) and also filling in inventories.
Actually, it could also include doing 3-monthly inspections (something covered in my thread about the cannabis farmers nearly burning one of our houses down)
NB. there is new Welsh legislation coming in which would mean this person had to be accredited to do any of this kind of work so I would need to look into what was needed for this also.
As there is generally not enough of this kind of work to fill 20 hours a week, I would probably want someone very flexible who could also paint, clean, fix a few things.
Does anyone employ anyone in this kind of way?
Or maybe I just need someone to do the ‘letting agent’ type of stuff for 10 hours a week, as we already have people who paint and fix things.
I’m also not saying I definitely want to employ someone permanently; it’s just one of those thoughts that occurs to me now and then. It could free me and my partner up to do more of the investment and development stuff; working smarter not harder (which is one of my mantras).
