Buying-to-let is becoming a growing phenomenon in Edinburgh. These days so many people move between work and study frequently. For these people it is important to have a flexible lifestyle and for this reason they prefer to become a tenant then buy their own house. Buying a house increases the responsibility plus it involves regular maintenance. On the other hand renting a property is easy, affordable and flexible. Buying a house and then selling it to move somewhere else just because you changed your university/college or because you got a new job or got transferred sounds like a complete hassle.

Tenancy laws:

These laws were changed in 1988 which allowed landlords to get their property back just by giving a sufficient notice to the landlord. Moreover in 1996 in UK, the government introduced special buy-to-let mortgaged for landlords. This made it easier for people to borrow money to buy property to let. This facilitated the landlords to quiet an extent.

Buying-to-let depends upon:

There are certain factors which the landlord must have in mind in order to have a successful buying-to-let. Firstly, the landlord must buy the right kind of property. This means that the property must be in the right location which appeals to tenants. For example if he is segmenting students then he should ensure that he buys a property which is close to colleges and universities. Secondly, he should be careful when selecting a tenant. He must always choose a tenant who is worthy enough to pay the rent and also look after the property. The landlord should be able to manage the tenancy properly throughout the tenancy period. Moreover he should comply with the rules and regulations which are on the letting property. The landlord should try his best not to get emotionally attached to the property as it is nothing more than a long term investment. The landlord should not treat it as his/her home.

Capital growth and rental income growth:

Capital growth and rental income growth are the two ways through which the landlord can make money. Capital growth is when the value of the property increases over time. The local conditions surrounding the property have a big effect on its value. The value might as well go down. What the tenant pays the landlord is the rental income which might grow over time as well. These are the two ways through which landlord can make money with his/her property.
