Accidental landlords must know their stuff

There has been a rise in the last few years in the number of people who are being forced to rent out their home when they move to a new house because they cannot sell it due to a lack of buyers in the market.

According to one property expert, it is vital for anyone looking to move into this venture to make sure that they know what they are doing.
