Most landlords go on word of mouth recommendations. A mate, somebody in the pub, colleagues at work are all good sources of potential star plumber or builder who are reliable honest and not too expensive.
We have recently come across the site ratedpeople which allows landlords to find all kinds of tradespeople from plumbers to paving specialists.
How does it work?
To find a suitable tradesperson a landlord simply needs to:
- 1. Give a detailed description when you post your job
- 2. Choose the best tradesperson for your job based on their skills and their rating
- 3. After they've done the job, rate them
We would be interested to hear of any experiences of landlords that may have used this website or similar. Are they any good, have you been successful in using them and are there any catches to sourcing tradespeople online or is it safer to stick to getting advice from your mates down the pub?
