An increasing number of landlords independently managing their properties

I self manage and all mine are several hours away from where I live. A good agent is worth their weight in gold but I've never found a good one. I am quite happy managing them all myself and have done for many years. At least I can sleep at night knowing everything has been done properly. Only time I ever had problems was when an agent was involved using their tenant find service so I find my own tenants instead.... Read More

Landlords, light-bulbs and downlights

Take it easy guys. I wasn't intending on getting into a dispute with my tenant. I was only asking who would be responsible for changing the bulbs in downlights so I know where I stand as I still have to sort them out.

I will take my questions elsewhere in future and I won't bother posting anymore on this thread as I'm not learning anything useful so feel free to criticise me all you want with your postings as I won't be reading it anymore.... Read More

Landlords, light-bulbs and downlights

I've sorted it out. I had a full professional inventory done with photos when the tenant moved in and upon rechecking that inventory I have realised that some of the downlights weren't working in the beginning so I will replace them. Just shows how helpful inventories are as I was almost certain that all the downlights were in full working order at the start of the tenancy.

I am so busy with my other business that having professional check in's and check out's and inventories are so crucial to me now as it covers my back as well as the tenant especially as I don't have as much time to spend on my properties at the moment as I used to have.

To Sally T - Of course I would still have a problem as they are not just 'light bulbs' Its a very high end property done to a very high spec with lots and lots of downlights. I don't believe in problems anyway. Only tests for us to learn from so that we can be even more successful and I now know who is responsible for lightbulbs lol
Thank you everyone for your replies.... Read More
