  • Residential properties
  • Ownership structures
  • Taking on tenants
  • Managing tenancies
  • Complying with tenancy law
  • Mediations and Tribunal hearings
  • Landlord accounting
  • Cleaning for letting
  • Useful tips
  • And much more...

Mr Landlord, Mr Fix-it

As anyone involved with managing rental investments will testify, the purchase and letting of a house, flat, or apartment is just the beginning of the story. Nothing keeps in perfect condition for long, and a certain amount of maintenance is unavoidable irrespective of property age. This book deals with maintenance with respect to fitness for purpose, and presents a variety of issues and solutions that are likely to be encountered sooner or later.

Mr Landlord, Mr Fix-it is a companion volume to Working Landlord, Happy Tenants. Written in an easy-reading style liberally sprinkled with tips and anecdotes, this book discusses:

  • Maintenance for rentability
  • Roofs, walls, doors, windows
  • Interior maintenance and decoration
  • Floor coverings, drapes and curtains
  • Plumbing and drainage systems
  • Electrical services and stoves
  • Grounds and gardens
  • Fences and driveways
  • Tools and materials
  • And much more...
