More About the Author

Richard Oldaker started his career in estate agency in 1997 at the age of 17 and bought his first property 2 years later. He quickly rose to the rank of branch manager and worked for a range of companies up until he started his own lettings franchise with a friend and work colleague in 2009.

He has since built up his own property portfolio whilst gaining the wealth of experience that comes with the letting and day to day management of over 200 client properties.

Richard believes that, over time, there is no better investment than property and encourages anyone who is thinking of buying investment property or looking to learn more about buy-to-let to read his book; How to buy-to-let property properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent advise from a property professional 7 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Straight forward advice from a property professional on how to start or grow a property portfolio. Having worked as an estate agent for over 14 years myself it is refreshing to be able to recommend a "manual" to my clients that I truly believe in. An excellent investment for newbie or experienced landlords alike A****

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book so far on Buy-to-Let 10 July 2013
By n w
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author has certainly been there, got the t-shirt, and now, written the book.

I've read other books on Buy-to-Let, but this is the best so far because of the broader experience of the author. The author is not just a buy-to-let landlord, but has experience as an estate agent, a letting agent, and of property management. For each part of the process this book provides clear advice and useful tips. Importantly the book is balanced in terms of explaining things from a tenant's point of view, and their expectations and legal rights, as well as from the landlord's perspective. The author also places importance on maintaining ethics and principles on the basis that not only is it the right way to operate, but will ultimately be rewarded by better results.

This is not a guide to get rich quick; but if you want to get rich steadily, then this book is money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very practical also up to date at present 7 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is very practical and up to date, I wish I had read it before starting. It's a bit rambling and not massively well organised and that is its main fault, but if you read through it you will get all kinds of practical useful information from a guy who is a lettings agent and does know the business, also he has his own property portfolio and he is cautious, not a gambler. I like that, because this is my own attitude. I have read some buy to let books which sound like they are written by landlords from hell, but he seems to take the view that you will do a reasonable job and have a reasonable business.

I feel pretty confident that what is in this book is based on practical experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 19 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book gives some great guidelines and strategies. It has made me realise that I should invest for cash flow and not just for the sake of investing. It also gives a balanced view of what could go wrong and whether you should manage your properties yourself or use a letting agency.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to buy to let 15 Mar 2013
By Claire
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been thinking about buying a property to let for some time and this book gives some great guidance and also gives a balanced view as to why property is a good investment. It shows you how to make sensible, unemotional purchase decisions and has given me the confidence to move ahead with my plans. I now also understand what yield and return on investment are!

This is a must-have guide for investors especially those setting out to buy their first buy to let property or those with a smaller portfolio of buy to let properties (under 10). It is clearly written with sound advice and has recommendations and resources in each chapter which is useful to follow up on. The author shares his wealth of knowledge gathered over years as an estate agent, lettings agent and landlord and outlines all the important factors involved in making that important investment. Highly recommended!

I found this book really useful even as an existing landlord and in my opinion this contains lots of tips and sensible practical advice. Its good to read something that comes across as genuine and honest, and leaves out the 'how to become a property millionaire in a year without any money, never work again, get yourself a young supermodel girlfriend/wife like I have' type sales pitch.
