- Rental properties need to be insured to cover damages to the property and third party liability.
- You need to be clear about the period of the lease, when it ends and how it can be renewed, if at all.
- Proper securities should be in place in the event that the tenant does not uphold his end of the contract.
- Your rental contract should include clauses to facilitate a quicker eviction in the event of a court case to oust the tenant.
