Those who want to get into the rental market but are but are having their doubts about commitment may wish to consider holiday letting a second home.
It has been suggested that this can be a better option for some landlords as it means the tenancy is short-term.
DHC Accounting said that although landlords have to do more to attract people to rent the property, it has benefits as it is a business venture and they will receive a lot of expenses.
Tony Briscoe, director of the firm, said: "You have people there for the short term so you can still keep an eye on your property rather than have a tenant for six months and you don't have any control over what they're doing."
According to the National Landlords Association, 37 per cent of landlords said they are experiencing difficulties with current tenants.
