McDonnell’s distorted and dangerous version of Right to Buy9:01 AM, 5th September 2019

Within the last ten minutes I have received proof that being a fair, kind and friendly landlord who provides good quality accommodation and communicates with their tenants, pays off and is appreciated.
During the last couple of weeks it has been necessary to get a couple of minor repairs done at two properties. One tenant insisted that she get quotes and deals with it all to save me any hassle and even offered to go halves on the bill ‘because I’ve always been good to her’. The other tenant has jumped to my defence and wants to give an unreliable plumber ‘a stern talking to’ because he has let me down and been very unreliable. Both tenants have told me how much they appreciate that I have been fair with them when they have had their problems.
After reading so much negative drivel in the press lately, this has confirmed that I am, after all, in the right ‘career’ for me and that my efforts are appreciated. Statistics and surveys can say what they want. I know I’m doing things the right way and so do my tenants!
Isn’t it a great feeling to be able to be proud to be a landlord!
