Lifecycle of a Landlord: 1 - Introduction

Vanessa Warwick from Property Tribes introduces the first video in our landlord know-how series of videos.

Introducing the key milestones that all landlords will experience - pre acquisition, acquisition, management and exit.

  • Pre-acquisition - research
  • Acquisition – Purchasing a property
  • Management –You’ve become a landlord, now what?

Lifecycle of a Landlord: 2 Is it right for me?

Before starting on your landlord journey you should know the answer to some key questions, which in turn will help you to know whether you’ll make a successful landlord.

  • What's involved and what are your legal responsibilities?
  • What are the business risks?
  • What kind of person makes a good landlord?
  • What is your timeframe?

Lifecycle of a Landlord: 3 - Setting Goals

There are many different strategies that you can adopt as a landlord - but which one is right for you?

Vanessa explains the importance of setting your goals early, which will then help to direct your strategy - whether you are looking for an extra monthly income or a legacy for your children.

  • Setting your goals for success
  • Monthly income or capital appreciation
  • It’s a marathon not a sprint

Lifecycle of a Landlord: 4 - Financing

Financing is a key part of any business, and property is no exception.  In property it is the major barrier to entry and getting it right can be the difference between success and failure.  Vanessa explains why you’ll need to find yourself a mortgage broker.

  • Cash or mortgage?
  • The value of a mortgage broker
  • How big a mortgage will you need?

Lifecycle of a Landlord: 5 - Acquisition costs

The enormity of the price of a property can often eclipse the other costs involved in property investment.  Nonetheless to be successful you need to break down the various costs, understand them and ensure that when added up they can deliver success.

  • Deposits, stamp duty and legal fees
  • Furnishing costs
  • Management
