As investors are investing to earn some income, one of the way is the rental income from your property. The rental income is the payment an investor/landlord receives when other uses his properties for a specified time period. Rental income is very easy to earn as the only thing a person has to do is to invest and buy a property. After that he can exchange his property for some return for a time period. An investor can get more returns when he invest more in the property. The property can be either residential or commercial.

Now we will discuss all these points.


The most important point to remember while searching a property to invest for rental income is the location and neighborhood. A good location and neighborhood will decide about your rental income in the future. A good location or a neighborhood is the one which is closer to the areas with the facilities like schools, a university, commercials, office area etc. People who cannot afford to have their own home will definitely look for a rental property near these facilities.


The maintenance of the rental property is very important. No one wants to pay for and live in a residential property which is very old and is lacking modern features. The investor or landlord needs to properly and regularly update and maintain the property that attracts the tenants to live in your property. Only whitewash or paint is sometime not enough to gain rental income.

Information of your tenants:

The investor or landlord needs to have the information about the tenants. Information such as the CNIC photocopies, photographs should be available with the landlord in case of any kind of emergencies or uncertain situations. Investors can ask a number of questions to the possible tenants and satisfy themselves. If required, check for the criminal records of the potential tenants too. This can save the landlords from a lot of hassles.

Market competitive rent:

Landlord must have the information of the market about the current market rent about any size of the property. The rent they demand should be market competitive so that tenants demand to live in your property themselves. The rent of the property can vary from area to area so the investor needs to make sure that they are well aware of the rent market.

Knowledge of laws and regulations:

Landlord must have the information of the laws and regulations of owning a property for example the property taxes that comes with the property ownership needs to be kept in mind. Rental laws are usually same for every city.

The clauses in contract of the rental agreement should also be kept simple and easy to understand. If possible the terms and conditions should also be written in a contact that is signed by both parties. If the clauses are violated by the tenant he can be held accountable for the violations.

Rights as the investor/landlord:

The landlord should be well aware of his rights and the ways he can choose if things do not go as planned.

These were some of the tips that the new landlords or investors should know before investing in the property to gain rental income. We hope that this information helps you find answers to your problems regarding your rental property.
