I'm after stories more then advice, or both. I'm thinking of purchasing two, three bedroomed houses in the Manchester area to rent to students. Hundred grand houses, ten grand deposit, ninety grand mortgage per house, rented out to three occupants per house. Rent is typically around the Â£55 per tenant per week, which equates to around Â£1300 a month, give or take. The area I want to buy in gets you a modernized three bedroomed house for 100k so I wouldn't have to do anything to bring the properties up to an acceptable standard. What I want to know is, is it worth the hassle? Has anyone rented to students before? Are they a safe bet, or is renting out to private/DSS tenants a safe, guaranteed income? And what extra do I pay on top? Insurance? Tax? Is there a 'safety net' with the mortgage provider if I go a few months without rent? Would I have to furnish the houses, and to what standard? And the deposit/mortgage/rent ratio, am I looking at a monthly/yearly profit, or just two mortgage paid houses for future sale for a possible profit? Any stories, info, welcomed.
