Landlords would be well-advised to "go back to basics"and develop a positive relationship with their tenants, a report suggests.

According to the Times, the sector has seen a dramatic increase in the number of amateur landlords looking to rent out their homes.

However, many are failing to cater for the needs of their tenants, with the article claiming that they must act "in a more businesslike way".

Building a relationship with the tenant based on mutual respect and trust, as well as a contract, is key to ensuring success as a landlord, the report pointed out.

This can help strike a harmony between tenant and owner, whereby each understands the desires and requirements of the other.

As such, tenants are more likely to keep the property in good order and meet payments on time, making life easier for all concerned.

This comes after a report by the Times this week revealed that the abundance of rental properties currently on offer means tenants are able to demand more for their money.ADNFCR-2002-ID-18920886-ADNFCR
