We’ve all seen the headlines: inflation at its highest point in almost 30 years; interest rates are rising, and the energy cap is about to lift. Everyone’s on tenterhooks to see what it will mean for their bank balance, and of course, landlords and tenants are going to be affected.
Owning one or more buy-to-let homes is the dream of many people. The idea of passive income, financial security and building a comfortable retirement is an inviting prospect that, for many landlords, has led to a complete change of lifestyle and career.

Whether your buy-to-let is for additional income or your long-term financial freedom, it’s vital to have complete confidence and comfort in your choice of letting agent. From the moment you first ask them to find you a tenant, and throughout their time looking after your investment, you should feel protected and prioritised by their abilities and actions.
