i am looking at renting out a property, should i rent it with or without furniture?

The question of renting a property furnished or unfurnished does depend on the location and type of property. For example, if your particular property is more suited to a family, they may already have their own furniture which they would prefer to use. However, young professionals renting flats may prefer the property to be furnished. One of the most important things to note is that any furniture supplied must comply with safety regulations and if it was to break you would have an obligation to provide a replacement for the tenant.

distance to work

How far people travel to work says a lot about the nature of an area. For example if people live and work in market towns there is likely to be a lot more community spirit to experience in daily life. When people are travelling further afield to work, they effectively spend their days on two different communities. It will be interesting to see if community spirit increases as people work more from home.

i have been living abroad for some time and would like to rent out my property in the uk. what do i need to know about tax?

As an overseas landlord, your letting agent would be required to deduct tax from your rental income before sending it to you unless they have permission from HMRC to pay the rent to you in full. This tax would then be paid to HMRC quarterly and at the end of the tax year you would be provided with a certificate in order to complete a self-assessment tax return and prove how much tax you have paid. If you would prefer the rent to be paid in full so you could complete a tax return and pay any money owed directly, HMRC will provide your letting agent with an approval number once you have registered with them which they need to pay the rent to you in full.
