Landlords Tips- practical & easy to understand landlord tips

If you’re a landlord looking for useful information, tips and discussions on a wide range of landlord related topics, then this is probably the most relevant section for you.

This is where I’ve archived much of my personal landlord experiences along with general and practical tips; among the pile you may find some valuable information to help you with your pursuit to being a more informed landlord.

I’ve tried to categorise all my articles as best as I can (see the sub-category links below), but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, you might be better served using the search feature at the top of the page, or going over to the landlord forum where there’s an active community of both landlords and tenants ready to assist with any enquiries you may have. They’re generally a friendly bunch, so don’t feel shy :)

If you’re a new or aspiring landlord looking for general tips on how to become a landlord and/or the general steps of being a landlord, I would strongly recommend going straight to the guide for new landlords.

Enjoy the ride!
