Being a Landlord is a simple yet comprehensive and practical step by step guide for private rented sector landlords, letting agents and social housing landlords who grant Assured Shorthold Tenancies. Simplicity is achieved by the book being written in everyday language avoiding legalese and multiple references to case law and legislation.

The book covers the full life cycle of a tenanted property – from the selection of new tenants to their departure and the check-out procedure. It also deals with:-

  • The documents to obtain from a new tenant and the checks to carry out
  • Deposit protection schemes and the recent changes
  • Possession proceedings
  • Repairs, health and safety regulations
  • Court procedures for debt collection and eviction
  • A dedicated chapter for landlords whose tenants receive housing benefit
  • The benefit cap and what a landlord should do about it
  • Houses in multiple occupation
  • Company lets and resident landlords
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 are facing an uncertain time with major changes to welfare benefits which will impact on them and their tenants. Being a Landlord guides landlords through these changes with minimal jargon and plenty of accessible step-by-step advice.
