Review of Broker
What I like best about Property118 Landlord Insurance is the price and efficiency at the point of renewal. I've only made two claims, one of which was for substantial fire damage. Both were handled very efficiently.

No Rent For Buy To Let Landlords

In that case I applaud you for working as opposed to giving up and claiming benefits, as most other to.

I once had a lady called Anna who came to work for one of my trading companies which employed nearly 300 Members of staff. One day she explained to me that she was only £20 a week better off by working. I remember asking her why she was doing it then, when she could be caring for her young son. Her answer was that by doing nothing she would never be able to better herself. 10 years later she was still working for me. However, she had purchased a four bed home, was driving a Porsche and owned a multi-million pound rental property portfolio. She was still happily single, she didn't have a rich man in her life, and she hadn't got into dealing drugs or doing anything else that was illegal to achieve this. She had simply worked hard to get out of a position she might otherwise have been stuck in for the rest of her life. She now has her own business and insofar as I am aware is still doing well for herself.

I would love to add her full name here but that would be unfair, especially without her permission. However, her first name is Anna and I know she is an avid reader of Property118, so I hope she's reading this comment.

TO ANNA - if you are reading this, be proud, you deserve to be!... Read More

Don't you go on holidays either?

If you are spending 100% of your income on rent, utilities and groceries then you're going wrong somewhere. Even people in receipt of housing benefits manage to afford some luxury items.

I couldn't afford to buy my first home in the area I grew up in either, so I found something I could afford which was further away and commuted. It's all about life choices.... Read More

All true, but you will also not be spending in bars, restaurants, coffee shops, retailers, massages, sporting events, going to Cinema’s etc.

You should be able to use this as an opportunity to save money towards buying a home of your own.... Read More
