Premium Tenancies landlord's log

Premium tenancies are something I’ve heard a bit about from a few different landlords in various parts of the Country who don’t know each other. This leads me to believe that these tenancies are more than just an urban myth but I have to admit that they are something I know very little about. However, I’ll share what I think I know and feel free to correct me. I also have some more questions which I hope will develop into a useful discussion for all landlords who hear about Premium Tenancies, search the internet for the answers, and then come across this post.

The Best Property Website Ever Landlords Stories, Latest Articles

The Best Property Website EverWhen I first came up with the concept of Property118.com I wanted it to be the best property website ever. To achieve this I realised that it was important to focus on my website being found as well as producing interesting, informative and useful content.

With this in mind I set about understanding the Google algorithm as I knew that more people in the UK use Google to search for information than any other search engine. Clearly it has worked as this is now one of the most popular websites in the world for UK landlords, letting agents and overseas investors who own and let property in the UK.

I have since systemised the process used to make this web-site so that I can show you how to create web pages which will rank as highly as this one. It’s all explained in my ebook which you can read about here.

I’ve also had a lot of fun teaching this to other businesses, particularly lawyers. If you’d like a bit of a laugh, search Google for “Business Lawyers Norwich”.

I’d like to think this is the best property website ever, but I suppose I would say that wouldn’t I?

It’s not up to me to decide, it’s down to you.

Holiday lets are the investment opportunity of the decade … here’s why …. Latest Articles, Overseas Property, UK Property Forum for Buy to Let Landlords

I’m an unashamed fan of U.K. coastal holiday lets. My husband Nick and I first started investing in them in 2008 as we saw the economic climate deteriorating and reckoned that people would start holidaying at home again. We’re now the proud owners of two high-occupancy holiday lets – one on the island of Portland in Dorset, home of the 2012 Olympic Sailing events, and one at an award-winning development at Camber Sands in E. Sussex, one of the U.K.’s finest sandy beaches.
