Is it OK to go on holiday? What if something happens to your property when you're away - you won't be there to deal with it. Well, no, but it's probably best to try and spread your wings and relax, at least for a few days. It's been a difficult year. Don't worry, your tenant will ring the Fire Brigade.
Be courteous and efficient: let your letting agent and/or tenant know that you are going to be away and then off you go.
Renting is, of course, the only way to go for landlords. Why stay in a hotel when there are so many other landlords you could support with their choice of villas, country cottages and apartments with sea views.
What you need is a change of scenery. Instead of lying awake at home fretting about fire safety, gas safety, electrical safety and drainage you could take a boat trip around the harbour, explore the Old Town and enjoy an evening at the taverna. Then, stumble back to your whitewashed holiday cottage to lie awake fretting about fire safety, gas safety, electrical safety and was that a rat's tail I saw poking out of that drain?
A change is as good as a rest.
