Why I Am Saying Goodbye, For Now

11 Mar

goodbye for now

So writing this post is sad.

And the decision to do it has not been easy – especially not when I’ve got so many super cool stories (and so many more in the pipeline) that I want to share with you.

However, I’m off to start living new adventures and so I’m officially taking a sabbatical…as of now!

You may remember I was meant do this before when I sold the lettings business, but then I got busy writing…and a blog post turned into a book or two!

And life has a habit of racing around you and before you know it, years have passed and you didn’t do what you meant to do.

Which is why I am taking a step back and saying: “Woah, hold on there life – I wasn’t quite ready for you to go so quick!”

So I’m grabbing back control and going off grid for a while.  I’ve got some cool ideas, adventures and travel plans.  There are so many people I want to see, chat with…places to dine, drink, dance…fun to make and experiences to be had.

So this is Goodbye, For Now.

Thank you so much for all your support, love and encouragement over the past few years, it’s been awesome.

Until next time x

The Importance Of Having A Tenant Guarantor (If You Want To Get Paid!)

4 Mar

3 years into a tenancy you would figure that you pretty much know a tenant.

No.

This isn’t so.

And that is because in that time period not enough stuff has happened for the tenant to react to.

shit+hitting+fan

What do I mean by that?

Well, as a landlord, you truly get a measure of a tenant when the shit hits the fan, and they don’t know what to do about it. (more…)
