This Week in Property podcast with Julie

I was delighted to be interviewed recently by the lovely Billy Farrell and Paul McFadden. They run the "This week in property"  and "The Better Business Show' podcasts. It was a real pleasure to talk to Billy and Paul as I've known them for a long time.  The highlights that Billy and Paul have referenced are: Highlights from 014: Julie Hanson Interview, Just Do Property Julie’s story of stumbling from personal development into network marketing into property…   Why Julie would have gotten involved sooner, and why others should heed the same advice…   Why Julie and Alec launched JustDoProperty.co.uk, after seeing what was missing to support new investors…   Why Julie believes now is the time for educated investors to take advantage of market shifts and clean up…   The two most important elements to property success…   Julie’s views on what’s going on in the world of property today,...

Happy New Year!

This is just a quick post to wish everybody a Happy New Year! We hope you have had a fantastic Christmas and New Year period. We took the opportunity to take the full 2 weeks off to spend time with our 2 children. Now we're back, fully re charged and refreshed. Have you set your goals for 2016 yet?  It's always amazing when you look back at previous goals and you can tick off all that you've achieved.  Even if you haven't achieved all that you set out, you'll be 100% further than if you had never set the goals in the first place.

Deregulation Act October 1 2015

Under the Deregulation Act 1st October 2015 landlords will be unable to end a tenancy with a Section 21 if they do not address a repairs complaint.   Many landlords are unaware of this fact.

Upad - does it work?

        I have been seeing a lot about Upad recently and wanted to find out about the property letting service that they offer. So last week I met with James Davis, Upads CEO.  He explained all about Upad and how it worked and why it was different to other online lettings services.  The differences that I could see was that they put your property on all the major sites like Rightmove, FindaProperty, Zoopla and Gumtree, plus all the UK local sites - and they also have a great system to handle the enquiries.  They currently get thousands of enquiries a month and the system is robust enough to handle this and 10 times more.
