Sometimes life can throw you curveballs, and all of a sudden, you can find yourself on a different path to the one you thought you’d be on.
For some, these changes can lead to owning a property which could result in you becoming an accidental landlord.
What is an accidental landlord?
There are various ways you can wind up being an accidental landlord. This could be due to unfortunate circumstances, such as death, divorce or separation, or you might have met your partner later on in life and are moving to live with them in their property. Similarly, you could be relocating for a new job prospect and for whatever reason, you have decided to rent out your old property rather than sell it and move on.
If you’ve never found yourself in this situation before, and don’t know anything about renting out a property, as there are a few different rules and regulations around the subject, then it’s worth having a read through this article to find out what you should be doing.
