I’ve been a professional landlord building a portfolio of properties in the Edgbaston area of Birmiingham since 1986.
I handle all aspects of my business except finding/vetting tenants which I leave to a couple of trusted local lettings agents. I try to keep abreast of legislation and the increasingly perverse number of recent court cases which we are all trying to get our heads around.
I rent out a variety of properties and my attitude is not that of landlord – a word which I loathe – and tenant but of somebody supplying a service for which I am paid. My customers tend to stay in my properties and I have few voids. I am a member of NLA and RLA and also company secretary for four freehold companies owning blocks of flats, 3 in Birmingham and 1 in Devon.
Two years ago I suffered major fire damage to a property and was left battered and bruised by the whole restitution process which was an absolute nightmare. I was shafted by my insurance company, the loss adjustor, the company appointed to carry out the refurbishment works and the surveyor who had his own agenda. I learnt a lot. If you are about to make a major claim get in touch with me first on my email address below.
