The following guidelines will help you reduce your landlord costs and take home maximum rental income.

  • Find good tenants – conduct thorough tenant screening to find responsible and cooperative tenants who will take care of your property and do it legally to avoid getting into discrimination claims.

  • Regular check – scheduled maintenance of your property and appliances will bring a crisis to your notice before it escalates.
  • Repairs and maintenance – estimate the amount of money you would need for maintenance and repair of your property in between tenants or at the end of the rental agreement.
  • Insurance – have property insurance for every property you own and also a rent guarantee insurance against default rent payment by tenant.
  • Professional help hire a lawyer to guide you while buying and selling property and business accountant to help you with tax payment.
  • Evaluate liabilities – frequently asses your mortgages, monthly debt services and interest rates to increase cash flow.
