What kinds of expenses could you face when taking on an investment property?
- Landlords are liable to pay Local Property Tax (LPT) where a property is rented under a lease of less than 20 years - check out www.revenue.ie for details.
- There may be management fees if your property is part of a complex or development.
- Try to build up a contingency fund to cover your costs when the property is empty or to pay for unexpected repairs and maintenance like replacing the heating boiler for example.
- If you decide to engage an agency to work on your behalf don’t forget to allow for agency fees.
