Two leading property experts, Paul Shamplina and Kate Faulkner, have joined forces to offer their blend of expertise in a one-day course for buy-to-let landlords who want to understand the reality of buy-to-let and the ups and downs of being a landlord.
Faulkner, who runs Propertychecklists.co.uk and is the author of the Which? Property books, will draw on her analytical experience of buy-to let-investment over the last 15 years and her insight into property issues which could affect future profits.
Shamplina is founder of Landlord Action, which has dealt with more 35,000 cases where lettings have gone wrong. He will highlight major lettings management mistakes and, most importantly, show landlords and investors how to avoid them.
During the day, delegates will also learn:
+ How to analyse the market to ensure property portfolios deliver on objectives
+ Real ways to turbo-boost investment returns
+ How the economy and politics can impact a portfolio
+ Why landlords and investors fail and how to prevent this happening
+ What to do when the inevitable happens – tenants go bad!
As well as Shamplina and Faulkner, there will be hand-picked specialists explaining up-to date essentials on finance, tax, deposit disputes, legal rules and regulations, plus ways of supporting your property management.
Shamplina said: “Many landlords – and indeed agents, mortgage brokers and legal companies – are currently operating in buy-to-let, but few have actually ever been educated on the essentials that deliver success and been warned of mistakes made that can end in spectacular failure. We’ll show you how to avoid the major pitfalls and give you the tools to become a successful landlord and investor.”
Faulkner added: “Many ‘experts’ will try to sell you courses on the ‘secrets’ of buy-to-let, or the ‘strategies’ you need to be successful, claiming property prices will always rise, or even peddle the outdated myth that property prices double every 10 years. They may even charge you thousands of pounds for ‘mentoring’. In contrast, Paul and I will cut through the false claims and get straight to the facts… and we believe you can learn what you need in just one day.”
The course will take place on Wednesday 16th November 2016, 10am-4.30pm, at Hamilton House, Mabledon Place, Kings Cross, London WC1H 9BD.
It costs £199, inclusive of VAT and all attendees will get a free six-week membership of Kate and Paul’s buy-to-let essentials site, which offers direct access to their expertise and network of lettings specialists.
