@Paul Barrett Thank you for kind words regarding my nativity and idiocy, I shall of course take great heed of your advice as you are so clearly such a seasoned sage of the BTL world and great business guru. Just a couple of observations to make. Firstly I read with great interest that you have had enough and decided to leave the sector. I am sure the whole housing industry will be devastated to hear this news and miss your well balanced commentary. It of course makes me wonder if perhaps encouraging people like you to get out of the game was the governments intention all along? If it was, and I think we all know what kind of person you really are Paul, then strike one to the government I guess. Shame that it took a massive sledge hammer that affects us all to get the odd rotten nut out of the industry but then I guess Machiavelli would have something to say about that. My second point is that over the years I have worked hard to build a solid business through good working practices and developing professional and mutual respect with my tenants. During that time I have still had my fair share of people who have not paid rents for various reasons and even had the odd property trashed at great expense to myself. And yet throughout that time, even with everything the government has thrown at us, through careful business management and adaptation I have made a very respectable living. Reading your advice it seems even stranger that I continue to make a good profit now. Even through this current crisis, through engagement with my tenants we have been able to find a way through and I continue to make a fair and reasonable living. And if tomorrow a few of my tenants suddenly found it impossible to pay the rent and one decided to take the whole thing out on one of my properties my business model would still survive and I would still be able to put some food on the table. And yet you Paul Barrett, this great sage and commentator of the BTL world, this self confessed Warren Buffet of the housing sector could not survive even one defaulter? To quote you from above “Just one wrongun tenant could bankrupt me” It leaves me questioning your advise and wondering who the Naive Idiot really is …
