The Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and the Council of Mortgage Lenders have joined forces to publish a Guide to Buy to Let.

Aimed at the prospective landlord, the guide advises on the whole buy-to-let process, with advice from lenders, brokers, letting agents, insurers and lawyers.

The guide also covers logistics such as furnishing a property, general maintenance, and has a section on statutory regulations.

Malcolm Harrison, spokesman for ARLA, said: ‘The guide is in no way intended to replace advice from intermediaries. Typically a potential investor, if they are doing the right thing, will go and see a letting agent and an intermediary. But they should start with a letting agent, which is where they would be offered the free guide.’
