Buy to Let & Letting

I Sacked Yet Another Letting Agent and Laboured in Liverpool!

Today I have been labouring in Liverpool – yes really. I may not have any photos to prove it (we were all hard at work).

But suffice to say the property is looking better than when the agents gave it back to us. They have duly been sacked! 

I admit the property is dated but we have not refurbished yet because we have planning to convert to flats so until the market recovers we are letting as one BIG family house (6 double bedrooms no less!) at a greatly reduced market rent – so basically one lucky family gets to live in a very large house for very cheap rent 🙂 

Here is the property as the agents gave it back to us (if you had smellovision you would smell the dog urine which permeated the entire house and the reason why I had to rip up all the downstairs carpets). They thought it was acceptable for the tenants to leave all their rubbish there for me to clear up. Not quite. They now have the bill!

24 hours later and a lot of elbow grease – here is what we look like. And we have tenants lined up – Happy Days 🙂

    Wow!! Shame you haven’t given us a pic with the Lettings Agency’s board or paperwork, so we can ALL avoid them! At least you can claim against the tenants’ deposit, so hopefully the work has been paid for.

    So many bad Agents about but ultimately it’s the tenants that need flogging. Glad you’ve put this one out on the internet as we hear so much about bad landlords and not enough about the tenants.

    My students behave better than that!

    Looks good now Sam well done. Know how you feel, it’s been a hard physical week for me too & I’m knackered but it’s nice to see the end result.
