Letting agents – some landlords avoid them, some couldn’t do their job without them.
It’s a personal preference and depends on the way that each individual landlord chooses to operate.
The great thing about letting agents is that they manage many of the tricky and lengthy aspects of tenancies that a lot of landlords dislike. However, finding the right letting agent can be a minefield for those unsure of what they are doing, so this handy guide from CIA Landlord Insurance may be helpful in laying out the basics.
Landlords that would benefit from a letting agent are those who have many properties to manage and are struggling to find the time to keep all their balls in the air, so to speak. Many landlords also don’t live close to their rentals, so may look to a more local letting agent to keep tabs on their tenancies.
