The Meaningful Money Personal Finance Podcast

Apr 26, 2017

When Rob Dix, one half of the Property Podcast duo Rob & Rob, approached me and asked if I would have him on to talk about his new book, How To Be A Landlord, I wanted to do it because I owe those guys quite a lot. But more than that, I knew Rob would bring amazing value to the thousands of you listening who are, or who aspire to be property investors.

How To Be A Landlord

Rob raises an excellent point in my conversation with him that once you buy a rental property, you not only become a property investor, you also become a landlord. There’s loads of information on the former, but precious little on the latter, and Rob’s new book is aiming to fill that void.

In this week's value-packed show, you'll learn:

  • Why adding property investing into your overall mix is a great idea, and why it might not be
  • Why understanding your responsibilities as a landlord might make or break the success of your property investment
  • How to go about finding tenants, and how to reference them correctly
  • The importance of a good tenancy agreement
  • How to have a happy relationship with your tenants
  • How to deal effectively with things that go wrong
  • The pros and cons of managing your property yourself or hiring a managing agent
  • How to find a good agent if you opt for that route

 Rob then suggests going through his checklist for all the above to make sure you're doing the right things. You can get the checklist by clicking that massive yellow button just below. See it? Yep, that one...
