Whether you’re a first-time landlord or a serial property investor, you’ll know that there’s always room to learn something new. One of the best ways to keep on top of your industry and get expert advice on managing a successful business is by reading property blogs.
Below, we’ve rounded up five of our favourite UK landlord blogs that you should bookmark.
LandlordZONE the UK's leading landlord website, offering advice for landlords and letting agents since 1999. Their website is updated seven days a week, and as well as offering the latest news from government and the property industry, the website offers landlords a voice to share their stories, on top of forums where like-minded entrepreneurs can get together to offer their tips and experiences of running a buy-to-let business in these uncertain times.
As a landlord, it’s your responsibility to keep on top of changing legislation and ensure you’re operating in a safe and legal manner. Enter the Landlord Law Blog, which features insights and analysis on changes to the industry and advice for wannabe and time-served investors.
Their Readers’ Problems section is particularly useful for those who are new to the industry, and their complementary podcast is recommended listening for your morning commute.
Landlord News has positioned itself as one of the most reputable resources in the industry, offering up-to-the-minute news, guides and analysis on the biggest developments in property management and investment. Armed with the latest developments and the bigger picture on the property market, you’ll make more informed decisions when purchasing new buy-to-lets.
Another resource to add to your favourites bar is Letting Agent Today and sister publications Estate Agent Today, Landlord Today and Property Investor Today. The blog covers the latest news in the lettings industry, alongside features on PropTech, mortgages, finance, marketing and compliance, as well as interviews with successful landlords and property entrepreneurs.
