Make sure you know what help is out there. Landlords can get some financial help with certain repairs and improvements. Joining a professional support body means you'll be more aware of these schemes and of any upcoming changes in housing legislation, policy and practice. This means you can be confident that you're doing everything you should be doing to manage your business properly and stay on the right side of the law. Professional training and support can help you deal with any problems that arise with your tenants and help you manage your properties effectively.
