I have been a landlord for 14 years, and my portfolio consists of one 4 bed house, four 3 bed houses and five 2 bed houses situated in the Halifax & Huddersfield areas. I also have a 5 bed holiday let in the west of Ireland in a semi rural setting, with 3 separate living areas including a playroom, set on a large plot surrounded by fields and working farms.
I would still happily live in all of my properties and I think that is the key to my success so far. If you show someone round a property and feel you would-not bring your own family to this property then its time to upgrade the property or forget being a landlord.
I have a mixed bag of tenants from families to single people, some on housing benefit others working or retired. Applications and references must be checked in all cases. I now have a waiting list for upcoming vacancies, should any arise, some tenants have been in for 8 years plus. I am a registered gas & electrical engineer, happy to give any advice or quotes.
