Agreeing to Let your Property?

Once you've accepted an offer from a prospective tenant, an agreement known as a Tenancy Contract needs to be signed between both you and the tenant. This agreement highlights the terms and conditions agreed. The tenant shall pay a security deposit of 5% of the value of the first years rent and should also provide post dated cheques to you for the duration of the agreement. As a landlord, you have the option to decide how many cheques you want to take. The number of cheques usually ranges from between one to twelve per annum.
