Empty Property, empty rental income and still face costs?

Reply to the comment left by Marcus Cassidy at 25/03/2020 - 10:59
Yes I do agree I set up everything online also and already have the keys at a key nest location for collection so I don’t have to come into contact with the tenants or go out to move the tenant in.

I fully understand what your saying, so I may do the same but I am also making sure the tenants are a little flexible on the move in date just incase.... Read More

Insurance loophole - illegal activities

The tenant was nearly 50 years old and a gentleman who passed all his credit checks and has a homeowner guarantor who also works full time and passed all her credit checks.

I would never of guessed he was the type to do this but it just shows you must inspect your properties!!!

The guarantor will now be hit with a hefty bill !... Read More
