Include "running" costs in any calculations

When considering a buy-to-let investment and carrying out your financial calculations don’t forget all the extra costs incurred when running a second property as a business. As a Landlord maintenance remains your responsibility, in a house this might mean decoration between tenancies, in a leasehold property regular service charges or maintenance charges as well as any ground rent are still the concern of the landlord. Don’t forget to include costs of annual gas safety checks, buildings insurance and any rent guarantee insurances you might require.
