Legal Benefits of Letting Us Manage Your Buy-to-Let Property

Owning a rental property in Leicester can seem like a legal minefield, but allowing us to manage your buy-to-let property can help to ensure that you never have to worry about complying with current laws.

At Keywest, we keep fully abreast of legal obligations for landlords to make sure that you never fall foul of the law. This can make life so much easier for you given that there are no less than 125 bits of legislation that landlords should abide by, not including the basics of deposit protection schemes, gas safety, energy-efficiency and fire safety.

The amount of legislation governing the buy-to-let sector may also grow further with the introduction of minimum-term lets, deposit caps and tenant fee bans, meaning that there has never been a better time to let someone else take the strain when it comes to helping you out with the legal management of your property.

This will help you to navigate current and future laws, such as a proposal for a three-year term as a minimum for assured shorthold tenancies. If it’s introduced, we can help you fully understand this legislation, including the way in which it would be possible for tenants and landlords to use a break clause after six months. It is worth noting, however, that agents or landlords will be unable to use Section 21 eviction powers until a three-year fixed period has passed, although a tenant can leave legally if they give at least a month’s notice.

These sorts of contrasts between the obligations of tenants and landlords can make renting out Leicester property seem more difficult than it has to be. In fact, making the most of a Leicester property investment can be supremely simple with the help of the Keywest team.

Our help will ensure that you stay fully up to date with landlord legislation as well as offering an affordable means of property management and as much help as you need to maximise your return on a Leicester property investment.

If you are worried about the outlay of employing the services of professional property managers, we can also reassure you that we have the potential to save you both time and money in the long run by preventing major problems from occurring, keeping you on the right side of the law, finding and managing tenants properly and helping you to keep your property in tip-top, money-making, tenant-retaining condition.
