Online property website has emphasised the importance of tenancy agreements to the private landlord sector.

David Amstell, founder of the company, said that as long as people create tenancy agreements they can rent out their property.

Indeed, apart from this piece of legislation, the housing expert suggested that becoming a landlord is "not rocket science".

"You just put [an advert] in the local paper, you get the enquiries and you basically can show the property yourself. As long as you have got the tenancy agreement - which you can get from the official stationers - it's not hard at all."

He added that a lot of people have jumped on the bandwagon of buy-to-let investments in recent months, before suggesting the majority of tenants are "quite reasonable".

This month's Rental Index found that the number of available houses to rent fell by 1.5 per cent compared to March 2009. According to the research, the number of available flats has increased by 2.8 per cent during the same period.
