Once you've chosen tenants, you need to ensure that you have all the correct paperwork in order to allow them to move into the property. Being organised from the outset should help make the tenancy run smoothly.

Efficient record keeping and filing systems can really help you manage your properties and tenancies effectively. There are certain pieces of paperwork which you should provide to your tenants but you should also ensure that you have kept copies of all of these for yourself.

There are some legal documents which you must provide to your tenants. Failure to provide certain documents to your tenants can result in prosecution and a hefty fine.
