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.

I wish I had a spent a few pounds on this book before buying my first property to let. The chapter on negotiating your purchase would have saved me a few thousand pounds. I would have negotiated harder if I had read this first. This book gives examples of property purchases and helps with strategy. There are also lots of resources and useful websites listed. A must buy.

Excellent book it walked you through all aspects of buy to let in a clear and concise manner. Very interesting and easy to read I would definately recommend this book to anyone starting out and to the professionals out there you might learn a thing or two as well. I feel inspired and prepared to embark on a property development adventure.

Here's a roistering, rollicking read that I came across whilst writing my book, BOOST YOUR POCKET MONEY AND PENSION, a Winner's Guide to Buy-to-Let Property Investment.
I read it at one sitting. So you may be sure Richard J Olaker's book is a good-un, and will reward many subsequent re-readings.
In some ways this manual is better than Toby Russell's DIARIES OF A PROPERTY INVESTOR. Because the author is a letting agent who has worked in the property business since his late teens. Buying his first property, aged 19, he nowadays has a substantial BTL property investment portfolio - and would, I suspect, look askance at the lowlife nature of much of Toby Russell's BTL portfolio in addition to disagreeing with my own injunction that you had best access your mortgage requirements via a mortgage broker.
(It's always worth seeking out alternative points of view, particularly when they come courtesy of an acknowledged professional practitioner in the field.)
Having said which, Toby Russell's "seat-of-the-pants" enterprise is necessarily a tad more exhilarating - like Buy-to-Letting in a bi-plane, so to speak! By way of contrast, Richard J Oldaker (for the sake of this clumsy metaphor) is operating the bomb bay of a Lancaster bomber like a veteran of the Dam Busters' raid.
Notwithstanding which, where BTL property investment is concerned, although sheer exhilaration may get us into the market place, it is BTL wisdom, such as that demonstrated by Richard R. Oldaker that will hopefully secure our position there.
Richard J Oldaker's book is a definite must-read! On the plus-side, it's a stonking good read, too!

As a landlord with 3 buy to let properties I still learnt alot from this book! I manage my own properties and there is some excellent advice for Landlords who have a more hands on approach to letting. The Author also gives a good argument as to why property is such a sound investment.

Really made sense. I couldn't agree more with Richards views clearly written and well structured. I have certainly learnt a couple of things I had not considered and I have had a couple of b2ls since 2003, oops. I will make sure I cover those with my next purchases

Had most of what I needed to get going, so an excellent place to start. I think in this game you need to do LOTS of reading around the subject but I would definitely say that this is one that should be included in your reading list.

Clearly written with plenty of examples. The author has been an estate agent *and* a letting agent so knows a huge amount of useful stuff.
