How to become a landlord

Get started

A buy to let property can be a great investment, but you shouldn’t underestimate the amount of work involved in becoming a landlord, even if you plan to use a letting agent to manage your property. There are a number of important considerations to make before taking the plunge into the buy to let market; legal considerations, insurance responsibilities, property maintenance and mortgages are all aspects which need to be planned ahead of time. Allow Which? to guide you through the process, helping you to become a landlord that any tenant would be happy to have.
