A Must for Landlords Managing their own Properties
on 13 July 2016
As a landlord I go on courses and have dozens of property letting / investment books. However, "Successful Property Letting" is my "go to" book, the most useful of all my books. It has the overviews of the letting business but, importantly, goes into the basic "what to do and why" detail. Years ago, when I started letting, I bought the earlier edition and followed the advice. I now have the latest edition. I manage the properties myself and whatever question or problem my tenants may have I reach for this book and find the solution. I always refer to this book when preparing a property for new tenants so as not forget anything and not get tempted to "over personalise" the property. Following the advice in this book, the properties let out very quickly and, so far (!), the tenants have looked after the properties. This book has saved me thousands of pounds by NOT paying letting management fees over the years. I always recommend "Successful Property Letting" to people I meet who are interested in becoming landlords and to those who are already landlords. So I thought, after all these years, I should post a review on Amazon so more people could benefit.
