Any would-be private landlord considering setting up tenancy agreements for their property has been urged to be careful.

Indeed, various reports over the last few months from organisations such as the Association of Residential Letting Agents have suggested that there has been an upturn in so-called accidental private landlords due to the slow property sales market.

Steve Sweeney, head of home and motor insurance at, said letting out a property "may seem like an attractive way to source extra income in the current climate".
