The appeal of rent-to-rent

There are two parties involved in rent-to-rent: a landlord who owns the property, and rents it to a rent-to-rent operator. The operator manages and rents the property to end tenants. A rent-to-rent agreement can be advantageous to both parties.

The landlord will be spared the hassle of managing tenants, maintaining the property, and dealing with void periods. They will gain guaranteed income and still realise the benefits of capital appreciation.

The rent-to-rent operator has the opportunity to capitalise on local demands and market conditions and let a property without needing a mortgage or capital. Many rent-to-rent operators have good local knowledge, are able to spot supply shortages and see the potential in existing housing stock. Rent-to-rent operators can either enjoy the ongoing profit from rent-to-rent deals, or simply package them up and sell them to other operators, acting as a deal sourcer.

Rent-to-rent tax considerations

Rent-to-rent tax considerations for landlords are generally straightforward and follow similar rules as conventional buy-to-let properties (see here for more information).

As a rent-to-rent operator, it is imperative to have a good understanding of tax as this will influence your approach and ultimately your profitability. A key factor to understand is that not all of your outgoings can be deducted for tax purposes.

Whilst day-to-day expenses (such as utilities, insurances and marketing costs) and spending on repairs, replacements and renewals can reduce your tax bill, larger costs may not. In particular, the capital costs of upgrading a property, such as upgrading a kitchen or appliances, or construction work to convert a property into an HMO cannot be deducted for tax purposes.

This is an important aspect as many rent-to-rent strategies are based on improving properties, and this needs to be considered carefully.
