The myth that landlords can evict at a moment’s notice

Thanks to examples like these I only accept tenants with good credit histories,in stable and relatively well paid employment who are vetted by a letting agent and then myself.The property is in an ex mining village in County Durham and lets for £575 a month,therefore in a relatively deprived area.

For the geeks:
Yield 6%
ROI 13.4%... Read More

New Tenant - something not quite right

I insist on no children, no pets, non smokers and no benefits ,furthermore this is in a former mining village in County Durham.
Eventually I get the tenant I require and don't have to wait too long.
Surely in Surrey you can manage that!... Read More
