The latest landlord and property related news including guest articles from industry experts covering property management best practice. Angus Ryan stresses the importance of having the right landlord property insurance, the ever entertaining HMO landlady shares her tale of cowboy builders and Mark Alexander adds two more compelling blogs to his Landlord’s Log posing questions on “Premium Tenancy” and data protection.
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.

We all like a late Christmas present so try and guess how many companies are in the directory to win £100 of B&Q vouchers. If champagne’s more your thing, there’s still time for you to tell us about your good tenants with the best story winning two bottles.
When 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.
Also check out the various sections on our Navigation Bar. Property118 has no products or services of it’s own to promote to landlords. The website exists to share strategies to minimise risks, maximise returns and to facilitate discussion and further sharing of best practice, experience and knowledge. It is 100% free for landlords and property professionals to use and always will be.
Our Guest Columnists all give their time here for the love of property, nobody get’s paid and between them, they have centuries of experience to share.
Property118.com is funded through advertising and sponsorship but we promise you, your details, should you choose to leave them with us, will never be passed on to third parties companies unless you specifically ask us to do so.
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. Continue reading Holiday lets are the investment opportunity of the decade … here’s why ….→
