  • Estimate your rental income

    This will be determined by prevailing rates in the area where your property is situated, and not by your cost of running and maintaining the property. You can get an idea of market rentals for similar properties by studying property websites and advertisements. Compare the income with your estimated costs, and see whether it will make financial sense to put up your house for rent.

    Use Zoopla to get a rental estimate or look at comparable properties on Rightmove

        Yeah i agree the best way is to compare prices with other propertys in the area online but also to compare the standard and the finsih on your property compared to others as people are more willing to pay that little bit extra if it means they cna move straight in and dont have to do any work.

          If fighting rental valuations you will need to used rental figures where properties have "actually acheived", otherwise the surveyor will not consider them. Using a comparable from rightmove with "advertised price" will not be strong enough evidence.

            I wouldn't recommend Zoopla, in my experience it's massively off the mark! I guess it's better in some areas but my area it's rubbish!!
