Letting a Property? Free Rental Valuation

Being a Landlord can be a Dirty Job!💩

This entry was posted on Wednesday, November 30th, 2022 by Nigel Fitzakerley

Sometimes you’ve got to get your hands dirty…

I remember the first time I became interested in property and buy-to-let, it was at a seminar run by a now-defunct property club called Inside Track.

It was a smooth sales pitch and everything looked easy…you bought an off-plan flat, at a discount, let it, watched property prices double every 10 years and then cashed out with thousands in the bank.

Sounds easy right?

Fast forward 15 years and we’re still doing the nitty gritty of letting properties profitability.  They didn’t tell me on this course that renting property is all about little details – vetting tenants correctly, having processes to collect the rent, reliable tradespeople to do any maintenance, long term solutions for developments.

All of these add up to making money consistently year in and year out.  I may not have seen my houses double in value but with a strong cash flow behind them, I’m looking forward to the next few years of rental and house price increases.

Our staff also like to get stuck into the detail, Chris our senior property manager recently did a video on preventing condensation to protect your paintwork & decor.  Condensation and mould can cost you £’000’s in damage so getting on top of it early could save you money.

See below the solution he came up with:
