Thrills & spills of being a landlord

It makes me laugh. The diversity of "living the landlord dream".

Online management of property
In the morning, in my capacity of Director of Property Hawk I have been 'shooting the breeze' with two guys from a billion pound company, discussing the possibility of how we can allow landlords to manage their whole rental operation from their phone or laptop. A digital end to end solution from getting in tenants, to managing the day to day operation of getting a CP12 (landlord gas safety certificate) to being able to sort out possession proceedings of a property through the courts.

Hands on management 
In contrast in the afternoon I spent half an hour trying to explain to one tenant the scientific causes of condensation and mould. This was quickly followed by physically manhandling a fridge freezer from one of my garages into the back of Micks (pictured above) waiting van. Comically it was not possible to extract the said fridge through the front entrance. Instead I was left trying to smuggle it down the side passage of the adjoining property without being spotted.

All in a days work for a jobbing landlord and highlighting the fact that are still a long way from every landlords dream of a hands free, hassle free direct residential property management. Occasionally though it's great to dream!
