I believe that by letting out properties in my own name I am potentially subject to unlimited liability lawsuits from tenants (apparently very unlikely but not impossible).
Would I be able to restrict the limit of my liability by renting out my property to a SPV (Single Purpose Vehicle limited company) for market rent. The SPV can then go and rent this property out and enter into an agreement with the tenants.
That way God forbid if any thing goes wrong the tenant will sue the SPV and not me.
I am not a dodgy landlord. I regularly inspect all properties and get the relevant gas and electric checks done. I just want to be on the safe side.
Any lawyers here who can shed light on this or any other landlords who have done something similar?
