The structure of the event has been proven to help landlords maximise their property investments after networking with both professionals and peers. The morning preceding the event is a fantastic opportunity to share experiences and discuss local issues.
You’ll be privy to a lot of in-depth information which can only serve to improve your acumen as you move further forward in your career!
5 Top Tips for Landlord Investments
Keeping in the spirit of the event, here are 5 top tips for landlord investments which you may find useful:
Research the Market
Keep yourself informed on both the risks and benefits involved with each investment you go into. Make sure it’s an investment you’re absolutely sure of.
Use Some Outside Guidance
It never hurts to employ some outside guidance – an agent who’s an expert in property management will be able to give you advice on best practice regarding rent, maintenance costs and other areas of property management.
Find Good Tenants
It may seem obvious but finding the right tenants can make your life a whole lot easier. Finding tenants who are responsible and unlikely to cause problems means less money and time being spent on maintenance or chasing unpaid rent.
The next step is securing long-term tenancies!
Know Your Rights
Knowing your rights as a landlord is extremely important. Being well informed on both your rights AND those of your tenants puts you in a better position to avoid any potential legal issues (which can set you back significantly).
Make Sure You’re Covered
Make sure you’re thoroughly insured to avoid any surprise issues. Landlord insurance will cover you for a wide range of unprecedented problems, so don’t make any assumptions – make sure you’re covered!
There are a lot of challenges you’ll face as a prospective landlord – events like this can be extremely helpful. Our services can also help you face these challenges – you can find out more about these services here.
