Hi guys I am moving to London in August. In Ireland I sublet a number of properties on air bnb, all with the landlord permission and I take full responsibility and pay for all insurance that is required on my behalf. I also pay for any upkeep that is required on the properties.The landlord benefit as I take over the upkeep of the properties, meaning they do not have to pay any extra fees to a management agency and get the full monthly rental sum plus a bonus at Christmas. I am hoping to do the same thing in the UK as an added source of income.
I would just like to know:
a) What legalities surround this in the Uk
b) Are UK landlords amenable to this business relationship
c) Are there any others doing the same thing and how have you found the experience.
I would not sublet without the Landlord permission as I feel that is totally wrong and not how I do business.
Any advice you guys can give is really appreciated.
