What to do when taking on a benefits tenant?

Thank you everyone for you comments and advice. It's a tricky one really as some properties are sticking simply due to benefit tenants not being able to provide guarantors at all !! It's like the chap said above he had a house empty for 7 months !! If the rent was £500 pcm then that's a £3500 loss already trying to hold out for a benefit tenant to get a guarantor. I may just have to take the risk an consider getting a larger deposit if possible on some properties but monitor them more closely. I know soon we won't be able to take deposits more than the equivalent to one months rent so that may put a spanner in the works.... Read More

Vandalism of Period Features

Honestly i would rip it out and put in a modern bathroom. It will appeal to a lot more tenants and the house will rent out faster. You will be able to increase the rent slightly also if you have just had a new bathroom suite put in so in the long run the bathroom will pay for itself. You've got to spend money to make money in this game. Good Luck !!... Read More
