So, You Want to Be a Landlord?

Posted on August 21, 2018

Making a profit from simply owning a property, it sounds ideal, right? Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as you think. We’re experts in the field, and we can tell you first-hand that being a landlord is tough, especially for those going it alone.

Tenants are notoriously unpredictable, there is no such thing as “office hours” when your tenant is ringing you at two in the morning about a leaky pipe, and if that doesn’t put you off, there are now over 400 rules and regulations for landlords to abide by when letting a property. Did you know that moving a tenant in requires around 17 hours of paperwork? All in all, this can be summed up with one word; STRESS.

We’re not trying to scare you, at Wright Residential we’re committed to helping as many landlords as possible. This is how we know that there is actually a simple, stress-free solution, designed to reduce stress and workload for you, the landlord.

So, how do you retain your landlord status without spending every spare moment revising the new amendments of letting law, chasing unpaid rent and resolving neighbourly disputes? You simply let us do it for you.
