Summary

By the author of the UK's most popular property book, The Complete Guide To Property Investment.

Take a property, throw in a tenant, and watch the money roll in. This seemingly simple formula has attracted nearly two million people in the UK to become landlords, but the reality is a whole lot more complicated.

Did you know, for example, that if you forget to provide a certain piece of paper you might be unable to evict a tenant - even if they don't pay the rent? Or that you could be fined for not checking your tenant's immigration status? And don't forget the inevitable broken boilers, mysterious leaks and various tenant complaints that always seem to happen at the most inconvenient time.

How to Be a Landlord is a straightforward guide to everything involved in letting and managing a property - whether you're an accidental landlord or an enthusiastic investor.

In simple and entertaining language, it covers important steps like preparing the property to let, advertising for tenants, conducting viewings, doing all the paperwork, managing the tenancy, and dealing with any tricky situations that crop up (including the dreaded emergency repairs and evictions).

You'll learn:

  • How to set yourself up for success when preparing a property to let
  • Where to find the perfect tenants for your property
  • The essential checks you must make to avoid a nightmare tenant
  • Everything you need to do when setting up a tenancy to avoid problems later
  • How to deal with the most common maintenance issues and repairs
  • The proper legal process to follow when you have troublesome tenants
  • Top tips from experienced landlords for how to look after your tenants - keeping them happy, your property safe, and the rent rolling in

Frequently updated and with contributions from over 50 experienced landlords, this is the most current and comprehensive book on the subject - and essential reading for anyone who wants a simple, profitable life as a landlord.

Great for aspiring landlords!

When I discovered this audiobook and the plethora of Rob Dix's resources and advice at the propertygeek.com, I was looking for a crash course in property management. I was so blown away with how quickly I was able to learn the ropes that I ordered the physical book too to use as a reference guide. Rob Dix is clearly very experienced and has an engaging, nice-to-listen to voice (with lots of witty jokes and funny stories) - always a bonus. You are definitely in safe hands and will come away learning loads :)

Informative read

comprehensive guide on being a landlord. As a small-scale landlord, it was an excellent read to fully appraise myself of the current legislation and best practice. I believe I will be more equipped to deal with a variety of situations going forward.

Another great book by Rob

The perfect sequel to the complete guide. Packed full of great advice to give you confidence when starting out as a landlord! Fantastic value for money when you think how much you would be prepared to pay an expert to spend over 5 hours sharing their hard earned knowledge and experience (which is how long it takes to listen to the audio book!) Thanks Rob.
