Being a Landlord is a simple, comprehensive, and practical guide for the UK's private rented sector landlords, letting agents, and social housing landlords who grant Assured Shorthold Tenancies. The book covers the full life cycle of a tenanted property in the UK, from the selection of new tenants to their departure and the check-out procedure. Landlords will find practical step-by-step guides on completing 28 forms and carrying out 37 procedures in relation to a tenancy. Many private sector landlords in the UK are facing an uncertain time with major changes to welfare benefits which will have an impact on them and their tenants. The book also deals with: the documents to obtain from a new tenant and the checks to carry out * the deposit protection schemes and recent changes * possession proceedings * repairs * health and safety regulations * court procedures for debt collection and eviction * landlords whose tenants receive housing benefits * the benefit cap and what a landlord should do about it * houses in multiple occupation * company lets and resident landlords.
