    New members saying 'hello' to us

    hi guys and girls! Have just joined up to this lovely forum and thought i'd say a quick hello! Have been reading through some very interesting and useful posts today and thought it would be criminal not to join. A little about me: im 22 years old from Watford (north london) and with the help of my dad managed to purchase a massionette last summer which is currently let out. Its 2 bedroom on the 1st floor on top of a very quite office which is opened mon - fri 9-5 so the tennants are very happy with the level of tranquility compared to some other masionettes on top of shops etc. was originally looking for a flat in a purpose built block but they are just too expensive in the area i live and also very small so this i think was a good compromise. i have started to settle down now with the mortgage and am looking to venture into a property development project sometime in the nxt few months. I work in luton bedfordshire and the property in these areas are very modestly priced. i believe that this is a town where the proprty will boom in the next few yeats. Plently of money comming in from the government to improve the town and also the M1 junctions 7-11 are undergoing major works for an extra lane. this will make transport from luton to london and vice versa very quick and accessible.
    i am going to start looking around seriously and maybe also look into auctions. would be very useful if you guys can guide me into the right direction in terms of auctions and any websites that list up comming auctions in this area..

    i will let you know how i get on. its a pleasure to join this forum. this was supposed to be a quick hello and seems like i have just told my life story!!

      New LZ members say hello (merged thread)

      Hello one and all,


      I have been lurking on this forum for a while now and decided to register, as I am finally a landlord (it's been a year from buying the property to having real live tenants in there) So I imagine that I will be posting more than just lurking around from now on

      I found lots of useful info on here while I was umming and ahhing about whether or not to let the property out, so I hope to continue making use of it, albeit in a less stalkerish manner!

        Hello Alley Cat,

        Welcome to the most exciting part of being a LL - the forum !

        If you hae been lurking for a while, you know what to expect, some help, some advice, and a good bollocking for not knowing better.
        Also expect you grammar, spelling and sentence structure to much improve with lots of help from a few dedicated experts!

        The roller coaster has just begun, now have you protected the deposit and done a proper inventory ?

                Welcome to LLZ, Alleycat. Since your communication skills seem impeccable already, you may choose to ignore this bleating:

                As you will observe, despite intensive remedial attention from dedicated experts, who have all given their time and energy freely in the cause of Rodent literacy, this 'member'*s written English shows absolutely no sign whatsoever of improvement. Split infinitives, possessives confusion, verbal diarrhoea, homophone crime, overuse of commas and ellipsis...Rodent specialises in non-standard grammar, punctuation and spelling

                  Hello Alleycat and thank you for the quick hello.

                  You probably already know that mind the gap and Rodent1 have a friendly liaison. Let’s hope that your posts result in some even friendlier responses from the members.

                          Well,


                          What a lovely welcome! In case you were wondering, here are the particulars of me landlordship:

                          * I co-landlord with my sister, its swell, she gets all the practical stuff done (getting paint and the like) and I get lumbered with all the paperwork like bills, council tax, house insurance etc (Oh What Joy!)

                          * We let via an agent, they are on the high street and seem ok (as far as agents go, I mean) and for the next 6 months are on their 'rent collection' service agreement

                          * The tenant seems ok for now, but I am a born cynic so am expecting the worse of people.....hence me and the sis have the whole 'Good Cop/ Bad Cop' thing goin on (Guess which one I am?)

                          * I spent a whole day (and I mean like literally 18 hours!) constructing a fully loaded - with fotos an everything- Inventory, even though the property was let un-furnished: wise move?

                          * I am bird not bloke, last time I checked anyway!

                          *Big Fan of The Miserables having just seen it over the August Bank Holiday

                            I am also a long time lurker, long time reader of this forum and as Alleycat has done recently moved into the landlord arena.

                            So hello Alleycat and everyone else out there

                              There's nothing quite like damning with faint praise is there?

                              Although having said that, I do get the impression this forum probably is the most exciting part of your life.
