Then there's the yearly gas check and stuff you need to be able to rent next year and that's without allowing for any maintenance that will need doing over the year. What happens if you want to sell in a year? Much more difficult to arrange if you're the other side of the world unless you have family close by that can do it for you.
      I agree with all of this. My parents convinced us to rent out our house and it has been a nightmare - so stressfull. It cost way more than I expected to get it ready for tenants with all the insuraces, certificates etc etc. Then the first tenants were a NIGHTMARE and left after 6 months. SO I had to pay agents to find more tenants - more money! Then the original tenants triesd to take me to a tribunal for keeping some of their deposit as they never cleaned the house etc - more stress.

      Now we want to buy here - we have not only the stress of try to organise sale from the other side of the world but also if we put the house on the maket current tenants are likely to move out into a new place before house is sold so it will be empty and I will have to find the money to pay the mortgage some how.

      Its different for everybody but if I knew then what I know now I defiantely would have sold up!

      Good luck to you.
