To rent or not to rent?
08 Jan 2010
Hi there. Can anyone offer any advice on how easy or difficult it is to rent out your home in the UK. I understand that you have to have various safety certificates for electrics, gas etc, just wondering what the cost is to get it ready to rent and how easy it is to manage from Oz. I assume you need a reliable letting agent, not sure what their cut would be a month? We have come into some unexpected money that may give us the capital to actually come over to Oz without selling our house. Just considering whether it would be more sensible to rent out our property and then sell in a couple of years when hopefully the property market and the exchange rate may have improved. Any practical advice or anyone's experiences of doing this would be greatly appreciated. Regards Andrea & Brian
