Property management - am I technically a letting agent?

Recommended Posts

I'm taking on the management of my parents investment properties. I am a minority share holder of 1 of the properties but not the other. With no share interest in one of them, am I at risk of being classed as a letting agent and subject to lots of legislative requirements or can i operate this role on behalf of the family without the requirements placed on letting agents?

If you operate in Scotland you would have to register as a letting agent. You could send emails so they look like they’re coming from your parents and avoid this. Depends if you’re comfortable bending the rules. 
Not sure about England.
