The previous posts have covered the key points of a property becoming a rental.

If you are dead set on holding onto your property as an investment/rental in the City of Wilmington, PLEASE do your homework. (Go down to the City County Building, get all the forms, find out the fees and read a copy of the "Delaware Real Estate Tenant Landlord Code".

I manage properties that my family owns and it is no easy task. Too often individuals think that "I will advertise the property, get a renter and life will be good". If it were that easy everyone would be doing it.

Take the time to meet with several Real Estate professionals to get a GOOD OVERVIEW of your options. The market is getting stronger everyday. Rentals are a good investment if you have the funds needed to own a property that may or may not be producing an income. You could be in a great position and renting is your best option.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any additional questions.
Good luck!
