Decide who you are marketing your properties to and furnish accordingly; a basic student house is not going to appeal to a family or a young professional couple. You also need to decide what is acceptable to you both in terms of tenants and the use of the property. If you donít want unemployed people, pets or sublets, then clarify this at the beginning of the process and have any clauses drawn into your tenancy agreement.

If you do want to rent your property to students then enquire about having it accredited with the relevant university or college.

Renting out property is the same as any other business and it will require continual investment, replacements and repairs to keep it running well. Make sure you budget for this when you set your rent.
