Buy-to-Let Guide for Residential Property Investors

Our buy to let lending partner ICS Mortgages have launched a comprehensive 25 page Buy-to-Let Guide for Residential Property Investors which gives an extensive range of top-tips and things to look out for when searching for a residential investment property, arranging finance and efficiently managing the property post acquisition.

It is estimated there are approximately 175,000 residential BTL landlords (Residential Tenancy Board Annual Report 2016) in Ireland and the percentage of people renting as opposed to owning their own home are at the highest level since records began. ICS have provided content within the guide which will appeal to both existing landlords and those who are interested in getting into this fast growing Buy-to-Let market.

Key features of the guide include:

  1. Detailed case studies on customers who have purchased BTL properties, refinanced their portfolios or turned their inherited property into a residential Buy-to-Let.
  2. Specific top- tips regarding what to look out for before purchasing, attracting good tenants, legal obligations of a landlord and managing both the property and finances once the property is purchased.
  3. A residential property cash flow model where your clients can build their own bespoke model through our Online calculator
  4. A template for preparing a ‘Tenant Handbook’
