How do you protect against unforeseen circumstances – like boilers breaking down, interest rate rises, competition on rents in the area?

We make use of something called a buffer which is a nest egg set aside to protect against those unforeseen circumstances which it they occur in quick succession across a portfolio can wipe an investor out. This can take the form of a drawdown facility on the mortgage or the use of a high interest account – but we say as a rule of thumb you should have about 5k for every 200k of property invested. Larger portfolios require larger buffers and its essential to keep this topped up using your rental income and ensure that should the worst happen on all your properties you can ride the storms.
