Letting property is a steep learning curve for the newbee so it's hard to know where to start.
I suggest you start be doing some reading. Try this article on the site - "20 Steps to Sccessful Landlording":
http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/successful_landlording.htm
Also, I recommend this inexpensive book:
Renting out your Property for Dummies - I was the technical editor for the UK edition and I think it's one of the best of its type.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0764570161/landlordzone-21/202-0201878-0875044
There's no easy way - but doing your homework first can save you some of the heartache of learning the hard way.

Have a look at my website www.learnletting.co.uk for some formal training. If you don't live too far away from me perhaps I can help you get off the ground so to speak.
