Can we rent out our LAQC owned property?
Question from Michelle updated on 8th October 2007:
Our expert responded:
The short answer is that yes, you can do this, as long as your existing property is sold to the LAQC at market value. The one thing that I would look at is whether or not your home will work as an investment property, as it is my experience that when you take into account the market value of the home and compare it to other properties and the rent you could get, sometimes, the old home does not work as an investment property. I would make sure that you take some advice on this to ensure you are taking the right course of action for your particular circumstances.
