Customer Question

I have a question regarding renting out a property 'as a business'I am familiar with these three clauses-being a landlord is your main job
-you rent out more than one property
-you’re buying new properties to rent out (adding to your portfolio of properties)I simply do not understand the finer details of the third clause. I also don't know how the first clause is decided and by whom.Would I have to pay NI contributions in the following scenarios?Scenario W
Landlord is my main job, I rent out two properties but I am not buying any other properties.Scenario X
Landlord is not my main job, I rent out two properties and not buying any other properties.Scenario Y
Landlord is my main job but I only rent out 1 property andScenario Z
Landlord is my main job, I rent out 3 properties and am actively buying a fourthWho is it that actually decides or approves the breakdown of what constitutes a main job? Is it the HMRC or a tax adviser?Many thanks
