After an exciting yet very tiring weekend, we’re back to work today, but with a considerable ‘To do’ list. We are expecting information we requested from a number of estate agents as well as doing our own research into the area we’re most interested in.
We’ve decided on the house would like to offer on, but it needs a new boiler, shower and a completely new decor (carpets, paint), so we have to budget for that. We also have to learn about being landlords, contracts, obligations and fully managed letting services.
Wow, that’s a lot to learn!
Luckily, information starts rolling in this afternoon, and it’s all pretty easy to understand. We have our property expert friend look at some of the T&C’s which is giving us extra confidence.
It seems the stars might be aligning for us.
We’ve started planning already. Maybe complete in January, and instead of travelling to Spain, we travel to Devon and start the decorating work on the house. Keeping our excited little fingers crossed!
